Transformer Principles and Applications provides a comprehensive overview of transformer operation, maintenance, installation, and troubleshooting. This full-color textbook is designed to develop basic competencies of electrical apprentices and beginning learners.

It begins with a thorough discussion of magnets, magnetism, electromagnetism, and how these apply to transformer operation. Subsequent chapters include the latest information on how transformers are used to reduce harmful effects of harmonics, and how reactors and isolation transformers are used to improve the power quality available to electronic equipment. Many different types of specialized transformers are explained.

A CD-ROM is included containing Quick Quizzes, an illustrated glossary, a Transformer Resources section, media clips, and reference material.
