An autotransformer is a type of transformer that uses a single winding to perform both the functions of a primary and secondary winding. In an autotransformer, a portion of the winding is shared between the primary and secondary circuits, allowing for a smaller and more cost-effective design than a traditional two-winding transformer.
Autotransformers are commonly used in power transmission and distribution systems, as well as in voltage regulators and other applications where voltage transformation is required. They are typically used to step up or step down voltage levels, with the degree of voltage change determined by the ratio of the shared winding to the total winding. Autotransformers provided by Jaybee Industries are available in the 25 KVA to 2500 KVA range.
Autotransformers are also able to provide greater flexibility in voltage regulation, as they can be designed to provide a range of voltage ratios. This makes them an ideal choice for applications where precise voltage regulation is required, such as in electrical distribution systems.
Overall, auto transformers are a versatile and cost-effective solution for many applications where voltage transformation is required. With their high efficiency, compact design, and flexibility in voltage regulation, they are an ideal choice for a wide range of electrical distribution and transmission systems.
