secondary winding

[′sek·ən‚der·ē ¦wīnd·iŋ]
(electromagnetism)
A transformer winding that receives energy by electromagnetic induction from the primary winding; a transformer may have several secondary windings, and they may provide alternating-current voltages that are higher, lower, or the same as that applied to the primary winding. Abbreviated sec. Also known as secondary.

2,b shows the electrical equivalent circuit of the furnace as an electrical transformer whose secondary winding has two short-circuited turns with a common branch III located between nodes 2 and 3 (see Fig.
The leakage inductance test is carried out by shorting the secondary winding and measuring the primary inductance.
The first geometry, Figure 5a, was an L-L core with the primary and secondary windings on the same leg.
where [n.sub.Pr] and [n.sub.sec] are number of primary and secondary windings turns, respectively, [U.sub.D3] is voltage drop across the diode D3.
Vector calculations and trigonometric properties were used to obtain the ratios of the secondary windings that would allow obtaining five outputs of the same magnitude but phase shifted by 72 degrees.
In selecting the inducting load to the secondary winding in the circuit of the transformer you muse uncheck the capacitor in the RLC branch of Figure 7 to select the inductive load than write the values of the inductor or capacitor you want of your desired.
Transformers are called for in a simple language and prototype device consists of two sets of primary and secondary windings and magnetic square around the sheets of iron core transformers.
This is considered as a disadvantage for wave winding, but this may be corrected by connecting capacitors in the secondary winding. Table 2, presents the values of mechanical force, efficiency, power factor, in the nominal operation of the motor.
Due to the larger inductance from the increased diameter of the windings, the secondary winding was only a few turns.
When signal current goes through the primary winding, it generates a magnetic field which induces a voltage across the secondary winding. Connecting a load to the secondary causes an AC current to flow in the load.
