What is a transformer? (1)
• It is an electrical device designed on the
basis of the concept of magnetic coupling.
• It uses magnetically coupled coils to
transfer energy from one circuit to
• It is the key circuit elements for stepping
up or stepping down ac voltages or
currents, impedance matching, isolation,

What is a transformer? (2)

When a magnetic field fluctuates around a piece of wire, it generates

an electric current in the wire. So if we put a second coil of wire next to the first
one, and send a fluctuating electric current into the first coil, we will create an
electric current in the second wire.
The current in the first coil is usually called the primary current and
the current in the second wire is (surprise, surprise) the secondary current

Mutual Inductance (1)
• It is the ability of one inductor to induce a voltage across a
neighboring inductor, measured in henrys (H).

M21 = Mutual inductance of coil 2 M12 = Mutual inductance of coil 1
with respect to coil 1. with respect to coil 2.
Mutual Inductance (2)
• If a current enters the dotted terminal of one coil,
the reference polarity of the mutual voltage in the
second coil is positive at the dotted terminal of
the second coil.

Energy in a Coupled Circuit (1)
• The coupling coefficient, k, is a measure of the
magnetic coupling between two coils; 0≤k≤1.

Ideal Transformer (1)
• A transformer is said to be ideal if:

1. Coils have very large reactances (L1, L2, M  )

2. Coupling coefficient is equal to unity (k = 1)
3. Primary and secondary coil are loss less (R1 = 0 = R2)

• An ideal transformer is a unity-coupled, lossless

transformer in which the primary and secondary
coils have infinite self-inductances.

•Input impedance is also known as reflected
impedance, since it appears as if load impedance
is reflected to primary side.

•Common practice in analyzing circuit with ideal

transformer is to eliminate transformer by
reflecting impedances and sources from one side
of the transformer to the other.

•Example: Want to reflect secondary side of
circuit below to primary side:

1. Find Thevenin equivalent of circuit to the right of

terminals a-b. (i.e. Obtain VTh as open-circuit voltage
at terminals a-b).
2. Get ZTh by removing voltage source at secondary
winding and insert a unit source at terminals a-b.

The general rule for eliminating the transformer
and reflecting the secondary circuit to the
primary side is: divide the secondary impedance
by n2, divide the secondary voltage by n, and
multiply the secondary current by n.
