## Designing A Transformer - Part 3: Physical Design Calculations

Brian Weston
After calculating the core size and wire sizes, it is time to do some physical calculations to see if the right materialÂ was chosen. In this part, ...

## Designing A Transformer - Part 2: Designing a Single-Phase Power Transformer

Brian Weston
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

Brian Weston
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.

## What is Frequency Response?

Brian Weston
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

Brian Weston
Custom design a XPWR transformer with a number of outputs (secondaries) totaling 300VA. Letâ€™s say one of the outputs is 6.3Vrms (all future comments will be rms Volts) at 5A. In addition, donâ€™t let the temperature rise above 40 degrees Fahrenheit and keep the flux density well below saturation. Simple, right?
