• The alternating flux induces a sinusoidal
ac voltage in the coil, whose effective
value is given by
 E = 4.44fNØmax V

Cont.
 E = 4.44fNØmax V

 where
 E = effective voltage induced

f = frequency of the flux
 N = # of turns on the coil
 Ømax = peak value of the flux

• Flux is increasing
 with time, the rate

greater than zero

+ve.
 • Flux is decreasing

Applied Voltage and Induced Voltage
• The coil has a
reactance Xm and
draws a current
Im. If the
resistance of the
coil is negligible,
the current is

given by

 Im = Eg/Xm

10

Cont.
• The sinusoidal current Im produces a sinusoidal
mmf (NIm), which icreates a sinusoidal flux, Ø.
• Im is called the magnetizing current and Ømax is
the peak value of this ac flux.
• The applied voltage Eg and the induced voltage
E must be identical.

Cont.
• For insert an iron core
into the coil Eg, E,
Ømax will retain its
original value.
• The magnetizing
current Im is much

• To produce the same
flux, a smaller mmf
is needed with an
iron core than with
an air core. 14
Elementary Transformer

• If second coil close

to the first, it will
surround a portion
Øm1 of the total
flux.

induced in the
second coil.

15
Cont.
• Voltage only exists
only btw terminal 1-
2 and 3-4. No
voltage exists btw
primary and
secondary terminal (
electrically isolated).
Fig 4 : V o lta g e in d u ce d in a se co n d a ry • The flux, Ø can be

broken up into
mutual flux Øm1 and
the leakage flux Øf1 .
• 16
Cont.
• Coupling btw the 2
coils is weak when
they are far apart
and the mutual flux
is very small
compared to the
total flux.
• Better coupling can
obtain by bringing 2
coils closer, but
even bring and
touch the 2 coils the
mutual flux still 17
Ideal Transformer at No-Load
Voltage Ratio
• This ideal
transformer has
primary and
secondary coils
respectively
posses N1 and N2

• The mutual flux is
by the primary
and secondary
coils. 18
Cont.
• According to the previous
equation, we can write:

 E1 = 4.44fN1Ømax and E2 =
4.44fN2Ømax

• The above equations can

be deduce for voltage
ratio and turn ratio, a of
an ideal transformer :

• 19
Cont.
• Primary and secondary
voltage are induced
by the same mutual
flux, they are in phase
too.
• The magnetic circuit is

and so no
(infinitesimally small)
magnetizing current
is required to produce
the flux Øm. 20
Cont.

• E2 is in phase with
phasor E1, current
Im lags 90o behind
