New Magneto-Electric Transformer with Higher Voltage Gain
-Conventional transformers are electromagnetic types, which use a ferromagnetic body and one pair of primary and secondary coils wrapped around it. To obtain a high voltage step-up ratio, a high number of turns-ratio is required. For example, if a transformer with a voltage gain of 100x is needed , a 100 turn primary coils and a 10,000 turns secondary...
