YT2095 Posted October 15, 2004 Share Posted October 15, 2004 here`s an interesting one. Imagine a transformer pluged into the main without a load on the secondary, it barely gets warm and will happily stay that way for days/weeks etc... now short out the secondary and it get quite hot quite fast, maybe even to the destruction of the device. now split the transformer into 2 halves, we have our primary plugged into the mains and it`s quite happy acting as a simple AC electromagnet why then should it get hot if I bring the other half (the shorted secondary coil) near to it? How does it "Know"? ) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
