This applet is about transformers. The number of turns on the primary and secondary winding, load resistance, frequency and amplitude of the voltage can be set by the user. The voltage and current waveforms are shown. A detailed mathematical analysis along with snap shots of voltage and current waveforms of a real transformer is also provided.

This is part of a large library of simulations titled "Learn Physics Using Java"
