What is transformer?
Transformer is a device that is used to raise or lower down the potential difference of an alternating current.

Function:
The function of a transformer is to increase or decrease the potential difference of an alternating current supply.

Structure and Technical Terms
1. A transformer consist of 3 parts, namely
  1. The primary circuit
  2. The core
  3. The secondary Circuit

Primary Circuit:
The primary circuit is the circuit that connected to the input energy source. The current, potential difference and coil (winding) in the primary circuit are called the primary current (Ip), primary potential difference (Vp) and primary coil respectively.
Core:
The core is the ferromagnetic metal wound by the primary and secondary coil. The function of the core is to transfer the changing magnetic flux from the primary coil to the secondary coil.
Secondary Circuit:
The secondary circuit is the circuit that connected to the output of the transformer. The current, potential difference and coil (winding) in the secondary circuit are called the secondary current (Is), secondary potential difference (Vs) and secondary coil respectively.
Working Principle of A Transformer
  1. A transformer consists of a primary coil and a secondary coil wound on a soft iron core.
  2. When an alternating current flows in the primary coil, a changing magnetic flux is generated around the primary coil.
  3. The changing magnetic flux is transferred to the secondary coil through the iron core.
  4. The changing magnetic flux is cut by the secondary coil, hence induces an e.m.f. in the secondary coil.
  5. The magnitude of the output voltage can be controlled by the ratio of the number of primary coil and secondary coil.

Types of Current in A Transformer
The current in the primary circuit must be alternating current because alternating current can produce changing magnetic flux. A changing magnetic flux is needed to induce e.m.f. in secondary coil.
The induced current in secondary is also an alternating current. The frequency of the alternating current in secondary coil is same as the frequency of the primary current.
The alternating in the secondary circuit can be converted into direct current by using a pair of diode.

Symbol of A Transformer
The figure on the left shows the symbol of a transformer. The 2 lines in between the coil denote the core.


 
 


Types of Transformer

Step-up transformer
A step-up transformer is one where the e.m.f. in the secondary coil is greater than the e.m.f. in the primary coil.
It is used to increases the potential difference. The number of windings in the secondary winding is greater than the number of windings in the primary coil. The current in the primary coil is greater than the current in the secondary coil.
Step-down transformer
Conversely, a step-down transformer is one where the e.m.f. in the secondary coil is less than the e.m.f. in the primary coil. It is used to reduce the potential difference. The number of windings in the primary winding is greater than the number of windings in the secondary coil. The current in the primary coil is lesser than the current in the secondary coil.
Calculation of Potential Difference Change
{{V_s } \over {V_p }} = {{N_s } \over {N_p }}
Vp = input (primary) potential difference
Vs = output (secondary) potential difference
Ip = input (primary) current
Is = output (secondary) current

Calculation of Current Change
Ideal Transformer
V_p  \times I_p  = V_s  \times I_s
Non-ideal transformer
Efficiency = \frac{{V_s I_s }}{{V_p I_p }} \times 100\%
Vp = input (primary) potential difference
Vs = output (secondary) potential difference
Ip = input (primary) current
Is = output (secondary) current
