exists and is an alternate of .

'Nominal' means 'named'. So a 'nominal' voltage is the named voltage of a system. For example, when we talk about a 120-V or 240-V system, we are describing their nominal values, not their actual values which can change from moment to moment.

Why is it not good to operate a transformer above its nominal voltage?

Overexcited Transformer. Operation above the rated supply voltage causes the ferromagnetic core to enter saturation; this means that the primary inductance is reduced and since the primary current is limited by primary resistance +inductance then the primary current will increase and possibly cause (MORE)
