Q7.23     A power transmission line feeds input power at $2300 V$to a stepdown transformer with its primary windings having $40000$ turns. What should be the number of turns in the secondary in order to get output power at $230 V$?

P Pankaj Sanodiya

Given,

Input voltage:

$V_{input}=2300V$

Number of turns in the primary coil

$N_{primary}= 4000$

Output voltage:

$V_{output}=230V$

Now,

Let number of turns in secondary be

$N=N_{secondary}$

Now as we know, in a transformer,

$\frac{V_{primary}}{V_{secondary}}=\frac{N_{primary}}{N_{secondary}}$

${N_{secondary}} =\frac{V_{secondary}}{V_{primary}}*N_{primary}=\frac{230}{2300}*4000=400$

Hence the number of turns in secondary winding id 400.
