Re: Transformer currents and power

Home Electrical Engineering Forum General Discussion Transformer currents and power Re: Transformer currents and power


Thank you for your response, especially for the extremely polite way you pointed out my mistake. =)  This confirms what I have learned since posting this topic.  I had the current ratio inversed with respect to the voltage ratio, which was giving me the impression that primary side current would be 4 times the secondary, instead of one fourth.  This, of course, contradicts calculations for current given the voltages and power rating of the transformer.  I wish I could say this is the last silly mistake I’ll ever make…
