Content

A transformer is a device used for transforming an AC voltage of one level into a voltage of another level with minimum power loss. Worldwide, transformers are used extensively in electricity supply systems, and many industrial consumers have voltage distribution networks running at high voltages that incorporate transformers.

This Unit has been designed to enable you to develop the knowledge and skills that will allow you to understand the theory and principles of these transformers.
