# E.m.f Equation of Transformer

Suppose , N1 = No. of turns of primary coil &

N2 = No. of turns of secondary coil of a transformer.

Φm = Maximum flux in core ( webers)

= Bm x A

f= frequency of alternating current in Hz

From the figure , it has been seen that the flux Φ increases from its zero value to maximum value Φm in one quarter of the cycle i.e in 1/4 f second

=4 f Φm Wb/s or volt

Now, rate of change of flux per turn means induced e.m.f in volts.

∴ average e.m.f/ turn = 4 f Φm volt

If the magnitude of flux Φ varies sinusoidally, then the r.m.s value of induced e.m.f is obtained by multiplying the average value with from factor.

∴ r.m.s value of e.m.f./turn = 1.11 x 4fΦm = 4.44 fΦm volt

Now, r.m.s value of the induced e.m.f in the primary winding

∴ E1 = (induced e.m.f/turn) x No. of primary turns

∴ E1 = 4.44 f Φm N1 (As Φm = Bm x A )

E1 = 4.44 f N1Bm A .....................(i)

Similarly, r.m.s value of the e.m.f. induced in secondary is,

∴ E2 = (induced e.m.f/turn) x No. of Secondary turns

= 4.44 f Φm N2 (As Φm = Bm x A )

E2 = 4.44 f N2 Bm A .....................(ii)

It is seen from equation (i) and (ii) that E1 / N1 = E2 / N2 = 4.44 f Φm .

from the above equation it is seen that the e.m.f/ turn is the same in both primary and secondary windings.

Voltage Transformation Ratio :-

.

From equation (i) and (ii) ,we get

E1 / N1 = E2 / N2 = 4.44 f Φm = K

Constant K is known as voltage transformation ratio.

i) If N2 > N1 i.e K > 1,then transformer is called step-up transformer.

ii) If N2 < N1 i.e K < 1,then transformer is called step-down transformer.
