Designing the electromagnetic function in a transformer – fifth lesson available on demand
The fifth e-lesson in the Design of distribution transformers course was held live on 11 January 2022 at 2 PM CET. As all of the other lessons in this course, it was conducted by Mario Salano, an expert in the field of power transformers, whose well established engineering skills are acquired in “Salano transformers”, renowned Italian company that manufactured line-frequency power transformers for Italian power utilities. Here you can find out more about the lesson and attend it on demand.
The author addresses the topic of the designing the transfer of electrical energy from a circuit to another one with different voltages by an inductive coupling, starting from a short reflection of the design concept in engineering. The focal point of the lesson is electromagnetic theory. It also sets the stone for the future lessons and the topics covered there, such as temperature, insulation, short circuit etc.
