Exploring Current Sense Transformers

Leave a Comment

Commonly employed in high-current circuits, current sense transformers (CSTs) are a type of instrument transformer used to measure current values in a conductor. In current transformers (CTs), the primary has very few windings and is connected in series with the conductor carrying the current to be measured. The secondary contains a number of windings that […]

Understanding the Maximum Power Theorem

Leave a Comment

The maximum power theorem, better known as the maximum power transfer theorem, is an essential tool for ensuring successful system design. Put simply, this theorem states that the maximum power that can be transferred from source to load is 50%, which occurs when source impedance is exactly matched to load impedance. The theorem is not […]

An Introduction to Impedance Matching Transformers
