Power Transformer Turns Ratio Testing - Videos and Related Books



This 32-minute DVD explains what a transformer turns ratio test is, how the test is performed, and what the results of the test mean. A substation power transformer is designed to step up voltage for transmission over long distances or to step down voltage for distribution to homes and businesses. The change in voltage depends on the ratio of the transformer’s primary winding to its secondary winding. Some transformer winding problems can be detected while they are still minor by using a test known as a transformer turns ratio test.
