Transformers 3


Yes, these are three transformers. Compare the desi transformer with the other two. The desi one is so ugly and the foreigner transformers are so cute. I pulled the foreigners out of a computer's power supply. I don't know what their rating is or how I might be able to reuse them, yet.

Technically the "transfomer" out of ATX power supply is actually "chopper". a chopper is a neat version of transformer which is built to operate at much higher frequencies than 50 hz (10 KHz not uncommon). Actually the basic design principle of ATX supply is "switched mode" which replaces bulky and inefficient conventional transformers with these smart efficient choppers. You may wish to google "switch mode power supplies".
