Unformatted text preview: R = Resistance of the coil. Eddy Currents electric currents that arise in a piece of conductor when the magnetic flux is changing through it A Transformer is a device used to step up or down an AC voltage. The transformer equation results from Faradays law. A stepdown transformer ( V P >V S ) requires N P >N S A stepup transformer ( V P <V S ) requires N P <N S If transformer is 100% efficient, (no power is lost due to eddy current) input power equal output power Primary coil ( N P turns) Secondary coil ( N S turns) P V S V Laminated iron core to trap and guide magnetic flux. Lamination eliminates eddy current S S P P V I V I = More Applications of Faradays Law P S P S N N V V = Transformer equation...
