Secondary Winding

  • (noun): Coil such that current is induced in it by passing a current through the primary coil.
    Synonyms: secondary coil, secondary

Some articles on windings, winding, secondary winding, secondary:

Transformers (electrical)
... energy through inductive coupling between circuits of the transformer's windings ... A varying current in the primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core and thus a varying magnetic flux through the secondary winding ... force (EMF), or "voltage", in the secondary winding ...
Ignition Magneto - Operation
... The ratio of turns in the secondary winding to the number of turns in the primary winding, is called the turns ratio ... results in a proportional voltage being induced across the secondary winding of the coil ... The turns ratio between the primary and secondary coil is selected so that the voltage across the secondary reaches a very high value, enough to arc across the gap of the spark plug ...
Test Probe - Current Probes - Alternating Current Probes
... The current to be measured is forced through the primary winding (often a single turn) and the current through the secondary winding is found by ... The secondary winding has a burden resistor to set the current scale ... single-ended voltage measurement can be made on a grounded secondary ...
Transformer
... A varying current in the primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core and thus a varying magnetic field through the secondary winding ... varying magnetic field induces a varying electromotive force (EMF), or "voltage", in the secondary winding ... If a load is connected to the secondary winding, current will flow in this winding, and electrical energy will be transferred from the primary circuit through the transformer to the load ...

Famous quotes containing the words winding and/or secondary:

    He’s winding up the watch of his wit. By and by it will strike.
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)

    Scientific reason, with its strict conscience, its lack of prejudice, and its determination to question every result again the moment it might lead to the least intellectual advantage, does in an area of secondary interest what we ought to be doing with the basic questions of life.
    Robert Musil (1880–1942)
