Need help constructing a transformer!!! Answered
Here are my specs and anticipations for my homemade transformer:
Im looking for my transformer to produce a voltage of 400vAC out of a standard 115vAC wall socket.
If ive done my math, and this is where I would like do correctig if noticed I need a turns ratio of 1.2 : 3.5. That is 1.2 to 3.5 or 115 turns of primary and 350 tunrs of secondary. 115 X 3.5 = 402.5vAC respectivley.
I have access to a fero-core so thats not a problem. Im using 22-20 gauge wire for the primary and 18-16 gauge wire for the secondary. If you find my wires to be of incorrect gauge please let me know. I realise 18-16 is rather large for a coil but I was trying to keep safety in mind do to the high voltage.
