Re: Self-built power transformer
It's according to the ratio of turns, not the ratio of turns squared. So, if
I had a xfmr with 10 turns on the primary and 1000 on the secondary, and I
put 120VAC in, I'd get 12000VAC out. The ratio here is 10:1000, or 1:100. We
call it the ratio of turns transformation.
