1. The step-down transformer reduces the
primary voltage by a factor equal to the
turns ratio. For instance, if the turns ratio was 4:1, the voltage across the secondary would be 1/4 of the primary voltage. In a step-up transformer with
a turns-ratio of 1:4, the voltage across
the secondary would be four times the
2. In a step-up transformer with a turns-ratio of 1:4, the secondary voltage will be 4 times the primary voltage. The secondary current will be
1/4 of the primary current.
In long distance electrical circuits, the step-up transformer is used to reduce the line current which reduces
the I^2*R losses.
3. 1kW = 1KJ/s
1kWh = 1KJ/s*3600s
1kWh = 3600kJ
4. rms means root-mean-square and is 0.707 times the peak value.
5. The impedance of a circuit is the ratio of the applied rms voltage to the
resulting rms current(Vrms/Irms).
The D.C. resistance is the ratio of the applied D.C. voltage to the resulting D.C. current(Vdc/Idc).
6. At the resonant frequency, the reactance of the inductor and capacitor
are equal and opposite. Therefore. the
net reactance is zero. So the current is
maximized and determined by the value of
