Designing A Transformer - Part 3: Physical Design Calculations
After calculating the core size and wire sizes, it is time to do some physical calculations to see if the right material was chosen. In this part, ...
Designing A Transformer - Part 2: Designing a Single-Phase Power Transformer
Single-phase power transformers are the backbone of electronics. In this section, we will delve into the math of the design process by calculating voltages, currents, turns for each winding, choosing core material and determining magnet wire sizes..
Designing A Transformer - Part 1: The Basics
This is Part 1 of a multi-part blog series that will cover the basics of transformer design. Part 1 of this blog series covers the basic transformer theory, parts of a transformer, and transformer schematic.
The Making of an EDCOR Transformer.
The production process for manufacturing EDCOR transformers has developed over four decades. We often get calls inquiring about the status of a tra...
What is Frequency Response?
Most of us know what frequency is; the high or low tones of sound. But some have asked what frequency response is and how it relates to transformers.
The Voltage Dilemma
Custom design a XPWR transformer with a number of outputs (secondaries) totaling 300VA. Let’s say one of the outputs is 6.3Vrms (all future comments will be rms Volts) at 5A. In addition, don’t let the temperature rise above 40 degrees Fahrenheit and keep the flux density well below saturation. Simple, right?
Transformers are the least understood of all electrical components. So, we thought we would give you some insight into the design.
