A current transformer (CT) is a type of transformer that is used to measure AC current. It produces an alternating current (AC) in its secondary which is proportional to the AC current in its primary. Current transformers, along with voltage or potential transformers … [Read more...] about Current Transformer (CT) – Construction and Working Principle
In this post, we will look at the voltage and power equation of a dc motor and the condition for maximum power in a dc motor. Voltage Equation of a DC Motor The voltage V applied across the motor armature has to overcome the back emf Eb and supply the armature ohmic … [Read more...] about Voltage and Power Equations of DC Motor | Condition of Maximum Power
