Electronics 1 Lab Project

A transformer is a device that transfers electrical energy from one circuit to another through inductively coupled conductors—the transformer's coils. A varying current in the first or primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux in the transformer's core and thus a varying magnetic field through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic field induces a varying electromotive force (EMF) or "voltage" in the secondary winding. This effect is called mutual induction.

If a load is connected to the secondary, an electric current will flow in the secondary winding and electrical energy will be transferred from the primary circuit through the transformer to the load. In an ideal transformer, the induced voltage in the secondary winding (Vs) is in proportion to the primary voltage (Vp), and is given by the ratio of the number of turns in the secondary (Ns) to the number of turns in the primary (Np).

By appropriate selection of the ratio of turns, a transformer thus allows an alternating current (AC) voltage to be "stepped up" by making Ns greater than Np, or "stepped down" by making Ns less than Np.

In the vast majority of transformers, the windings are coils wound around a ferromagnetic core, air-core transformers being a notable exception.

Transformers range in size from a thumbnail-sized coupling transformer hidden inside a stage microphone to huge units weighing hundreds of tons used to interconnect portions of power grids. All operate with the same basic principles, although the range of designs is wide. While new technologies have eliminated the need for transformers in some electronic circuits, transformers are still found in nearly all electronic devices designed for household ("mains") voltage.

Circuits 2


The prerequisite of this course is Circuits 1. This course concentrates on the concepts and operation of resistors, inductors and capacitors. It starts with the RL, RC and RLC combination circuits. It also tackles responses of these circuits to varying frequency and their resonance.


To understand the concepts and principles of RLC circuits, their importance to modern technology and be familiar with the different networks of filter.


After taking the course, the students should be able to know how to design a circuit that would allow a certain frequency to pass and demonstrate the response of an RLC circuit.


The course intends to develop in students the value of patience, discipline, cooperation, responsibility and determination in performing every activities and completing their projects and requirements.
