# An Ideal Transformer Example

From Class Wiki

Consider a simple, transformer with two windings. Find the current provided by the voltage source.

- Winding 1 has a sinusoidal voltage of Â° applied to it at a frequency of 60Hz.
- The combined load on winding 2 is

### Solution

Given: and

Substituting ,

Therefore,

Now the Thevenin equivalent impedance, , is found through the following steps:

Since this is an ideal transformer and

So we can substitute,

Now, plugging in the given values:

Since this is an ideal transformer, it can be modeled by this simple circuit:

Therefore, ,

Andrew Sell - Chris, everything looks fine, though I would do some extra formatting if possible to help make the problem flow a little smoother as you read it, and locate the picture a little higher to help bring the solution together.

Tyler Anderson - Looks good.
