A two-winding transformer must have at least 4 wires, an autotransformer need only have three. So, if the device has only three connections, it cannot be a two-winding transformer. Or, if it is, it is internally connected as an autotransformer and is treated the same. On the other hand, if it has four or more connections, it could be either, because the manufacturer could have internally brought out the common wire to two connections to make it easier to wire the line and load. You would have to measure with an ohmmeter to be sure! Warning! Do not attempt to make any such measurements unless you are trained and fully qualified to do so. If it is a large transformer used in a power distribution system it will have this information on the nameplate.
For a step-down transformer, its secondary winding will be the LV winding. For a step-up transformer, its primary winding will be its LV winding.
A transformer 'winding' is simply one of its coils. A simple transformer has two windings. The winding connected to the supply is called its 'primary winding', while the winding connected to the load is called its 'secondary winding'.
It depends on the rated voltage of the transformer winding -are you talking about a 12-V transformer winding or a 400-kV transformer winding? Obviously, there is no one answer to your question!
The apparent impedance looking into a transformer from one side will not be the same as looking in it from the other, which is why percent impedance is used. If you are looking from the high voltage winding (I'm labeling #1) to the low voltage winding (#2), you must scale the percent impedance as follows: (% impedance) x (Winding #1 nominal voltage)^2 / (transformer base VA)
The primary winding of a transformer is connected to the supply, while the secondary winding is connected to the load.
Its Low voltage winding.Further AnswerFor ANY transformer, the primary winding is the winding connected to the supply, while the secondary winding is the winding connected to the load.
the auto transformer is the one winding transformer. it ismaily used in practical purpose.
The terms, 'primary' and 'secondary', describe how a transformer is connected and his nothing to do with which is the lower- and higher-voltage winding.The primary winding is the winding connected to the supply, while the secondary winding is the winding connected to the load. So, for astep-up transformer, the secondary winding is the higher voltage winding, whereas for a step-down transformer, the secondary winding is the lower voltage winding.For a loaded transformer, i.e. a transformer whose secondary is supplying a load, the higher-voltage winding carries the smaller current, while the lower-voltage winding carries the higher current.
A transformer winding only produces a magnetic field when current flows through it. Switch the current off, and the magnetic field disappears. You do not need to 'demagnetise' a transformer winding.
The primary winding of a transformer is whichever winding is connected to the supply, whereas the secondary winding is whichever winding is connected to the load. The terms, 'primary' and 'secondary' do not apply to voltage levels.
A transformer consists of a 'core' (called a 'magnetic circuit'), around which are placed two coils, called 'windings'. The winding connected to the supply voltage is called the 'primary winding' and the winding connected to the load is called the 'secondary winding'. If the secondary winding has more turns (loops) than the primary winding, then the transformer is a 'step up' transformer; if it has less turns than the primary winding, then it is a 'step down' transformer. So, theoretically, and certainly in the case of a basic transformer, there is no difference between step-up and step-down transformers -it depends which winding you use as the primary.
You need two windings because that is the purpose of the transformer - to convert one voltage into another. If there were only one winding, it would be an inductor, or a special case called an autotransformer, but that is still "sort of" two windings.AnswerThe major advantage of a two-winding transformer (a 'mutual transformer') over a single-winding transformer (an 'autotransformer') is that a two-winding transformer provides electrical isolation between the secondary and primary circuits. This is very important for safety reasons and there are many circumstances in which the use of an autotransformer is not permitted.
A step-up transformer produces a voltage across its secondary winding which is higher than its primary winding. The secondary winding is connected to the load, while the primary winding is connected to the supply.
A winding is the name given each of the coils wound around the transformer's core. A basic transformer has two windings, termed the primary winding (connected to the supply) and the secondary winding (connected to the load).

Internal Parts of an electrical transformer are mainly :- 1) Core . 2) LV Winding 3) HV winding 4) Transformer Oil Note :- transformer oil is only applicable for OFT transformer
Like transformer induction motor has stator winding(Primary winding) and rotor winding(Secondary winding) separated by an airgap.Rotor winding(generally Al bars) are short circuited at the end to produce torque for the rotation.Hence the name short circuited transformer.
There's no physical electrical connection between the primary and secondary winding of the transformer. They are related by the magnetic field induced in the transformer core by the alternating current flowing through the primary windings.
transformer is static device witch transform electrical energy from primary winding to secondary winding with out change in frequency
It doesn't really matter which way around you use a transformer, the primary winding is ALWAYS whichever winding you connect to the supply, and the secondary winding is ALWAYS whichever winding you connect to the load. For either connection, the turns ratio will ALWAYS equal the voltage ratio for an ideal transformer (or close enough for a real transformer).
A transformer has two windings, termed the 'primary winding' and the 'secondary winding'. The primary winding is the winding connected to the supply, while the secondary winding is connected to the load. The secondary voltage of a 'step up' transformer is higher than the primary voltage; the secondary voltage of a 'step down' transformer is lower than the primary voltage. The simplest way to determine whether a transformer is a step up or step down, is to measure the primary and secondary voltages. If you are simply looking at a transformer, then the transformer's insulated bushings will give you a clue -the higher voltage bushings are much bigger than the lower voltage bushings. If you have access to the inside of the transformer, then the higher voltage windings are thinner and have a greater number of turns than the lower-voltage winding.
