Autotransformer vs Isolation Transformer

An isolation transformer is an electrical transformer with a primary and secondary coil winding. These windings are separated by insulation. This insulation limits the risk of electrocution when the active parts and earth are touched simultaneously. An autotransformer is an electrical transformer with only one winding. The term “auto” refers to a single coil acting …
