How to calculate and make a homemade toroidal transformer

In it you will find a simple way to calculate the core, the turns of wire, its gauge and the amount of wire in meters and by weight. We hope it will be very useful for you.

Today I share a new video where I teach how to wind and calculate the measurements of a Toroidal transformer core. I also leave you the link of the caliber table as well as my previous videos related to the subject. Don't forget to subscribe and turn on notifications so you don't miss any of our upcoming videos.

Ferrite core transformers are often used to minimize power losses due to a phenomenon called hysteresis. Toroidal transformers are also used to minimize power losses. A toroidal ferrite core transformer combines the advantages of both types of transformer. Because transformers are used for one of three purposes--to isolate DC electrical power from one side of an electrical circuit, pass an AC signal voltage, or step down an AC signal, it is important to determine how the transformer will be used before attempting to wire up.

Instructions

• Determine how the transformer will be used. This step will determine how the transformer is connected.

• If the transformer will be used as either a step-up or step-down transformer, determine the multiplication ratio for the transformer and record this factor. For example, if you want to build a step-up transformer that will convert a six volt AC input signal to a 12 volt AC output signal, write down that you intend to build a "2:1 transformer." If you want to build an isolation transformer, write that you want to build a "1:1" transformer.

Wrap the wire around the ferrite or iron ring so that the wire makes a tight loop around the ring. Mark the insulation of the wire where the wire begins to loop. They mark the end of the wire loop. Unwrap and straighten the wire.

• Measure the distance between the marks on the wire and record the measurement. This distance will determine how many wire turns can be made on this transformer core.

• Calculate how many turns of wire are required to make the transformer. For example, if you want to make a 2:1 step-up transformer with 10 turns of wire on the output side, you need to have enough wire to complete the 30 turns of wire--20 on the input side and 10 on the input side. the output side.

• Calculate the total length of wire you will need for each side of the transformer by adding four inches to the length of wire you previously calculated. For example, if a 20 turn wired side entry transformer requires one foot of wire, the total wire entry wire length should be one foot four inches.
