I connected 6vac to the secondary of a 120 to 12 transformer, what should be the output voltage. I just know the shock was very painful.
What is the output voltage when it's connected to 120 Volts?How many volts if i connect the same voltage in the primary of a microwave transformer?
When run at the usual frequency, most transformers will have the magnetic core saturate if the voltage is a bit above nominal voltage. Once the magnetic core saturates, the output voltage won't increase any more, but the input impedance of the transformer will drop.But if you connect 12 volts to the secondary, you get 120 volts on the primary.
If you connect 120 volts to the secondary, you'd get 1200 volts out of the primary....except that the insulation may not hold up, and you may get a fireball instead.
