With the various kinds of transformers available in the market, each supporting different applications, power transformers in India are the most popular types of transformers used. These transformers are highly efficient in transmitting high voltage levels at loads above 33kv. In fact, they perform their best at 100% load! This quality of providing maximum efficiency has resulted in power transformers being used in transmission networks, transmission substations, and power generation stations. These power transformers are further categorized into step-up and step-down transformers to increase or decrease the voltage levels as required.
While earlier agriculture had everything done manually, today it has transformed into a high-tech sector with a variety of magnetic being used for farming, tilling, and harvesting. One of the equipment that helps in a major way in this industry is the transformer. These equipment are designed to provide sufficient power to support various agricultural applications. There are various types of transformers available in the market, out of which three are majorly used in the agricultural industry, namely power transformers, auto transformers, and high voltage transformers.
What are auto-transformers?
Auto transformers are electrical transformers having only a single winding; thus the single coil acting alone, without any kind of automatic mechanism like in other transformers. In fact, the single coil itself plays the role of both primary and secondary winding’s, with one end acting as primary, and the other end acting as the secondary. In this way, auto-transformers have the benefit of being smaller, lighter, and cheaper than other double winding transformers; but with the disadvantage of not providing isolation between the primary and secondary circuits.
High frequency transformers can work efficiently only if two important conditions are fulfilled – reliability and electromagnetic compatibility. Reliability has always been paid attention to, while electromagnetic compatibility has come into focus only in recent years because of the increasing awareness towards environmental protection. Reliability can be defined by the specific conditions of usage on which the high frequency power transformers can normally work. The temperature in which the transformer works is one of the very important factors to be considered. For some soft magnetic materials, the Curie point is very low, which is why they are very sensitive to temperature. One such example is manganese zinc sift ferrite that has a very low Curie point, which is why it’s working temperature is very limited.
Transformers are devices that transform the voltage of power from one circuit to another depending upon the individual needs of the consumers. To change the voltage from one value to another, involving either an increase or decrease, transformers use the principle of electromagnetic induction.
