    Behavior of Transformer on Loading

    A load is a part of the circuit which consumes electrical energy or power and converts it into some other form like heat of some external mechanical work or electrical energy. Similarly, when an external circuit is attached to the secondary coil of the transformer, so that it consumes some of the electrical energy or power contributed by the secondary coil, then the transformer is said to be in a loading condition.

    Current can only flow through the circuit if it is closed, i.e. only if the secondary coil has a closed circuit attached to it, called the load, only then the current will flow through it.

    Here is the 4th part of Nasir’s tutorial on transformers. If you want to write for the blog just like Nasir, don’t hesitate and send us a mail.

    The SPD industry: their real job? Putting the competitors down (testimony)

    "Over the past year I’ve been in charge of updating our company’s boiler plate specification for surge protection devices (SPDs) also called Transient voltage surge suppressors (TVSS). Meeting with several product reps it became very difficult to separate the sales hype from the important facts."

    This was an extract from the testimony of Mason, one of the members of the community who did send a his testimony of his work experience in a surge protection devices company. According to Mason, the industry spends a lot of time putting the competitors down. Will you agree with his point of view and the 6 lessons he’s learned from this experience?
