Step-Up Transformers



Step-Up TransformersStep-Up Transformers are common under very high voltage applications and the larger the application, the more likely it will be a custom design.  What all Step-Up transformers have in common is that they increase voltage.   As is discussed on the What is a Transformer? page, the mathematical formulas used have all the elements in the equation of any transformer, but Step-up Transformers always have a primary winding that is fewer in winds than is the secondary winding.  The proportion of the two windings to each other determines the final output voltage.

Why one would want to increase voltage with a Step-Up Transformer is found in the fact that any conductor has a certain amount of resistance which causes some of the energy in the line to dissipated as heat.  It is also known that the smaller the surface area of the conductor, the less the power loss through heat dissipation.  It is also known that higher voltages travel more easily on a given surface than lower voltages; therefore,  it is beneficial to step up voltages to much larger quantities so as to offset the predictable losses through resistance by allowing the use of smaller diameter lines.

There are intricate calculations to describe this phenomena, but this is beyond the scope of this discussion.

The point here is that the above-mentioned phenomena is used to good effect in Step-Up Transformers by the simple application of the formula given on the What is a Transformer? page to bring the voltage up to levels useful in avoiding significantly high losses of energy through resistance.  Such applications are almost exclusively in the area of energy transmission and are extremely high voltages.

For the average individual, the concept remains the same, except the emphasis of use of a Step-Up Transformer is on matching local power needs.  In this case one might, for instance, want to use equipment demanding  240v, but have only 120v available.  Another need can be due to a consistently higher or lower than normal incoming voltage.  Special lower-cost transformers are often used here.  Further information on them can be found on the Buck Boost Page on this site, at the following linked site about this type of special transformer, or at the link under the same name at the right of this page.  See also  Step-Up and Step-Down pages.
