You write :”The first and most important one is that they are energy efficient. This means that they can deliver much more power through similar wires at a faster rate. It is estimated that their power transmission capability is 10 times greater than the traditional transformers. “
more (10x) power through similar wires at ar faster rate????
1) Power capacity of a wire is first of all dictated by the amount of heat generated by the current through the wire, which is of course the same for all types of transformers.
2) It’s capacity is also influenced by the skin effect for AC-currents but of course if 50Hz or 60Hz is required then this the same for all types of transformers. Higher frequency = less power transfer possible.
3) the speed of power transfer is the same for all types of transformers as the electrons in a wire all have the same speed, not matter wat type of transformer is used.
