Pulse transformers.

EC105.57 3
Constructional features of Auto Transformer

EC105.57 4
• It is a transformer with one winding only, part of it been

common to both primary and secondary.

• Primary and Secondary winding are not electrically

isolated from each other.

EC105.57 5
• Its theory and operation are similar to that of a two
winding transformer.

• Because of one winding it is compact, efficient and


cheaper.

• It is used where transformation ratio differs little from


unity.

EC105.57 6
It is also used as an adjustable transformer for both
stepping up and stepping down the input voltage.
