How to design a Step-Down Transformer (electronic circuit)?

You can easily design the Step-Down Transformer circuit by practicing the exercises given below. Here you can design and simulate your own electronic circuits with this Online Circuit Designer and Simulator.


Circuit Description:

Here we have a transformer with 10 times as many windings in the primary (on the right) than in the secondary (on the left). As a result, the voltage in secondary is 1/10th the primary voltage. (It's not exactly 12V because of resistance in the primary and imperfect coupling between the two windings.)

If the secondary were shorted (the resistor replaced with a wire), the primary current would be much greater, and the secondary current would be 10 times the primary current. -- Credits: Mr. Paul Falstad.

Always N1/N2=n turns ratio right ?
