Hey everyone, I'm a bit confused about how exactly the transformer works. What I have gathered from wikipedia is that basically what is happening is a low voltage DC is pulsed through the primary winding via a transistor, causing current build-up. When the pulse is through, the current in the primary ceases, and the stored energy in the iron loop induces a current in the feedback coil. The resultant current is at a very high voltage and it decreases until the current no longer is running, at which point the process is repeated. Is this correct? Why does the transformer induce such a large voltage in the feedback coil? Also, what does it have to do with the turn ratios in the coils? How can the proper ratio be figured out? And finally, why are the number of turns for the feedback coil supposed to be less than the primary coil? Thank you for any and all explanations.
