Core saturation in transformers

  1. Oct 29, 2013 #1
    Hello,

    I am currently working with mono phase transformers. I would like to know if there is an equation to calculate the voltage when the core saturates so I can compare with my practical results with.

    Thank you very much
    João

    Interesting. How will you recognize core saturation in your practical results?

    Hello NascentOxygen,

    This was another problem. The solution presented was to check when the voltage in the secondary side starts to drop or analyse the waveform in the secondary side using a scope. Do you have any suggestions for that too?

    Regards

    What you wrote sounds spot on.

    My suggestion would be to try a google search. I'm sure you will find it well explained. Youtube might hold some surprises, too.

    Good luck! Your understanding of transformers is about to *explode*. :smile:
