Hey, it’s Steven Mill! Last time I told you about improvements of light absorption in semiconductors. Today, I’m going to tell you about another improvement directly related to transformers. Will you be convinced by it?

Introduction

In late twentieth century, transformers were considered as a breakthrough in the field of modern electronics and power transmission systems. They made everything easier, whether it was power control, transmission and distribution.

However the conventional transformers had some disadvantages as well. The major among those disadvantages is power loss in the form of heat, especially during the summers. Also the cooper gets worn out with time and there are hysteress losses as well.

In order to overcome these problems and to achieve flawlessness, scientists devoted a lot of their time and energy to develop a new kind of transformers that are far better and effective than the primitive ones. They are known as Solid State Transformers.
