Overview

top of page

The output values of a transformer are related by the ratio of primary and secondary coils. An input and output value of the same type are required to calculate the ratio, which can then be applied to calculate the unknown value.

Formula

top of page

R = Kpri / KsecĀ
Upri = Usec / (Kpri / Ksec ) = Upri / R = Usec * (Ksec / Kpri )
Usec = Upri / (Kpri / Ksec) = Upri * R = Upri / (Ksec / Kpri )

Units

top of page

Upri or Kpri = ĀPrimary variable of any of the three types
Usec or Ksec = ĀSecondary variable of the same type as U1
R = Ratio of primary variable to secondary variable (quantity [])

"Number of turns" values are unitless, "Electric current" values are in amperes [A], and "Electric voltage" values are in volts [V].
