Definition - What does Power Transformer mean?
Power Transformer is an electrical device that converts inbound electricity to a higher or lower value of voltage for specific purposes. It is a major component in power grid to supply voltage in many nations. The two main functions of the transformers are:
- To supply current from source to destination
- To regulate the voltage of the current
It consists of a coil system in the device that manages the current flow within a specific range.
Petropedia explains Power Transformer
The components of Power Transformers are designed in such a way that they can provide optimum field performance. The coils and cores are coated with high-quality grade epoxy and are thermally insulated. Depending on the requirements, one can select a large power transformer or a small power transformer. The small power transformer can be used in theaters to provide power to speakers. They maintain the magnetic flux thus it is possible to regulate an appropriate amount of voltage and current that is delivered to houses and businesses.
