Functions And Features Of Power Transformers

A power transformer is basically a device which is used to convert voltage or electricity to a lower or higher value so that it can alter the current flow required for specific electrical applications. It is used to regulate the flow of current to commercial buildings and residencies without overloading the circuitries. It therefore acts as a device that offers adequate protection while using electric current in homes and other spaces.

These transformers perform two basic functions which include transferring electric current from a specific source to a destination and regulating the voltage of the current before it approaches the destination. These devices are large units which forms a part of the grid system. However, it is also available as small devices which help to regulate the flow of voltage and current to the electrical appliances used daily.

Power Transformers

Majority of the electrical appliances include some type of power transformers. Even a sound system used in theaters includes transformers to protect the devices from damages caused due to high voltages. Although these transformers are seldom used in small devices nowadays, it is still used in sub stations and power grids to control high voltages and frequent voltage fluctuations.

One of the key reasons to use these transformers is safety. It is impossible to use electrical appliances without the use of these devices as it would include great risk. A power voltage transformer system is used in most of the companies as it facilitates in auto- shut down of electrical appliances during an overload or power surge. It therefore prevents electrical appliances from being destroyed or damaged completely.

Transformers are available in a huge range of sizes to suit different specific purposes. Regardless of its size, it functions similarly and operates on the same technology.

Today power transformers are available in different sizes and styles such as open style design, conservator type design, sealed tank design and automatic gas pressure design. The modern transformers are designed to lower the loss of energy. Modern transformers are designed to be more energy efficient. These transformers also contribute towards reduced greenhouse gas emissions.

Importance Of Step Down Transformers And Its Utility

All kinds of transformers are basically used to alter the voltage of a power supply to meet the specific requirements of electrical appliances and sub appliances. A step up device is basically used to convert low power into high power and a step down transformer is used to reduce the current or voltage. Majority of the electrical appliances use transformers to distribute various types of voltages. There are a series of transformers in a community grid line to regulate voltages.

Step Down Transformers:

These transformer devices basically take power from a higher voltage and convert it into a lower voltage level. These devices vary in power and size and each transformer device includes certain specifications which enhances its performance and ability.

Step Down Transformer

There are small sized step down transformers which are used for powering small electronic devices. A typical door bell is one of the best examples of the use of step down transformers. Majority of the household power circuits carry 120 volts but a door bell requires only 12 volts which can be reduced with the use of a step down transformer. This device is also used in electrical grids to facilitate the reduction of power delivered to individual houses.

Apart from step down transformers, the step up transformers are also used for various electrical appliances. One of the most common applications of step up devices is the electrical motor starter which consumes a huge amount of voltage to start the motor engine. Extra power is provided to the appliances even when these devices use maximum volt power.

Large scale step up applications are used by power companies to ensure the delivery of power supply to long distances. Power distribution is done easily with the use transformers for majority of the electrical grid lines. These transformers are basically used to elevate the voltage and push the electrical current in small and large circuits.

Both these transformer devices convert voltage and current so as to maintain a steady level of power. All types of transformers devices can be bought from online stores at affordable price rates. There are large number reputed brands that sell a huge variety of step up transformer and step down transformer devices.

Tips To Measure EMF With Gauss Meter

A gauss meter is an electronic device which is basically used to measure the strength of magnetic fields. It is also known as magnetometer. These instruments are also used as metal detectors, to measure the EMF or the Electromagnetic Field and to measure the magnetic effects in electronic components. It is also easy to find metals which require demagnetization with the use of gauss meters. The Hall Effect sensors are the most common types of magnetometer probes.

All electrical appliances at homes emit a certain level of electromagnetic field. It is important to know how to measure EMF and identify the causes of high EMF in homes.

Gauss Meter

To measure the electromagnetic field, it is necessary to buy a gauss meter or an electromagnetic detector. These devices can be bought online too as it is available in most of the online portals at affordable rates. Turn on these detectors and detect the changes in the readings when it is held close to the electrical appliances in your home.

It is easy to detect electromagnetic leakages when these detectors are used near exposed electrical wires in the basements and other areas. There are safety standards for EMF exposure and if the readings are above the stipulated level, it is considered to be unsafe.

There are many electrical devices used in homes which produce high electromagnetic fields. Hair dryers and electrical heating blankets are some of the most popular devices which are used in homes. Hair dryers should never be used on small children as it can affect their health and development in an adverse manner.

The electromagnetic field produced by the electrical heating blankets is also considered to be harmful to health as it can cause miscarriages among women. It can cause serious health issues in young children too.

Some electrical clocks and telephone also emit high EMF so it is important to sleep away from these items. Unplug electrical items which are not in use to limit the exposure of electromagnetic field. In some homes, faulty electrical wires can be the leading cause for higher emission of EMF so it is quite essential to repair and replace faulty lines with professional assistance.

Advantages and Disadvantages of AC to DC Converter

Current can be classified into Alternating Current or AC and the Direct Current or DC. Some of the electrical appliances require Direct Current or DC for functioning. It is therefore essential to convert AC to DC and such converters are known as AC to DC converters. These converters are also known as Switch Mode Power Supply.
