The Difference Between Inductors and Transformers

Transformers and inductors seem very similar in a visual and construction sense. However, they have differing applications and have their own unique design and construction elements. Below is a brief summary about them both, which provides a little guidance to the differences. Inductors An inductor (also called a choke or reactor) is a passive two-terminal …

Types of Magnetic Core Materials for Transformers

The electrical power transformer features primary, secondary, and tertiary windings. The transformer is driven by the flux between the windings. Magnetic cores are used in transformers, which serve as the pathway of the flux. The core can be made from various materials, this post discusses some of them. The magnetic core is basically a material …

Ferrite Cores for Engineers: The Definite Guide

An electric power transformer features primary, secondary, and sometimes tertiary windings. The flux linkage between these windings drives the transformer. For effective flux linkage, one low reluctance magnetic path is provided in the transformer. This path is known it typically in the core. Generally, the core is made from different materials like silicone steel, ferrites, …
