Intro to 1 phase transformers
What is a Single Phase Transformer?
Let’s start with defining what a single phase transformer is. A single phase transformer transforms a higher voltage to a lower voltage and can also transform a lower voltage to a higher voltage.
When they are labeled “single phase” it is the same principle as single phase power, you know, the power most people use every day for their lights, TV, etc. So, yes, you are thinking correctly as you hear the phrase single phase transformer.
Remember that single phase power is a two wire Alternating Current (AC) power circuit. In the US it’s typically 120/240 but some countries have 230v on the power wire along with a neutral.
