What is 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 winding, secondary winding, secondary, windings:

Test Probe - Current Probes - Alternating Current Probes
... measured is forced through the primary winding (often a single turn) and the current through the secondary winding is found by measuring the voltage across a current-sense resistor (or "burden resistor") ... The secondary winding has a burden resistor to set the current scale ... common mode voltages, so an accurate 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 ... 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 ...
Transformers (electrical)
... AC 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 ... flux induces a varying electromotive 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 ... 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 ...

Famous quotes containing the words winding and/or secondary:

    Few, few shall part, where many meet!
    The snow shall be their winding sheet,
    And every turf, beneath their feet,
    Shall be a soldier’s sepulchre.
    Thomas Campbell (1774–1844)

    Cloud-clown, blue painter, sun as horn,
    Hill-scholar, man that never is,
    The bad-bespoken lacker,
    Ancestor of Narcissus, prince
    Of the secondary men. There are no rocks
    And stones, only this imager.
    Wallace Stevens (1879–1955)
