    Hi there, thanks.

    I like to know if there is 35 turns in the primary winding of a transformer and 280 turns in the secondary, how many volts is needed in the primary to result 1100 volts kindly reply.

    Thanks
    Ron

    Assuming a perfect transformer to voltage on the primary relates to that on the secondary according to the turns ratio. Your transformer will step up by a factor of 280/35.

    say n1 turns = primary side
    n2 = secondary side turn
    then by formula
    n1/n2 = vp/vs
    where vp = primary voltage
    vs = secondary voltage
    here..it is given that
    n1=35
    n2=280
    vp=?
    vs=1100 volt
    therefore
    35/280 = vp/1100
    so vp = (35*1100/280)
    = 137.5 volt
    nearly equal to 138 volt.
