Description

Transformers have become more essential in our modern electronic life since only a very few device work without it. Transformers have gained greater advantage as they can increase or decrease the voltage and current levels, without modifying the frequency.
This course is designed to help students to know about the need of transformers. It provides a detailed note on construction, installation and maintenance of a transformer. This course also describes different types of transformers and various methods involved in testing it.
After completion of this course, students will have an extensive knowledge about the need and benefits of a transformer. Most important of all, they will know how to protect a transformer from damage and how to maintain it.
