I would like to know how to work out the turn ratio on a transformer from having just the input and output voltages.

N = turns ratio

Vp = primary Voltage (rms)

Vs = secondary Voltage (rms)

In real transformers, the turns ratio will be slightly higher (typically about 2%) than what is calculated by this formula. One way to improve the accuracy of the calculation is to use a primary Voltage that is only about 10% of the rated Voltage.

For example = 244 / 9.88 = 24.6

So the turn ratio is 24 - 6

So the turn ratio is 24 - 6

what? isn't it 246 to 10? or 24.6 to 1?

There are quite a few more types of transformers than just step-up and step-down (e.g. autotransformers, buck-boost, isolation).

How do you calculate the out put voltage of a transformer when you only know the input voltage

its based on the ratio as stated
