    Hey!

    How about connecting transformers in series.How would it wok and how exactly would i connect them?Any PDF's or documents related to this,would be of vital help.

    Thanks !

    Transformers do have a polarity on the secondary. If you connect them one way the two AC voltages will subtract, while if you connect them the other way the two AC voltage will add. Current will be the lowest rated transformer.

    Hey ! How would i find the schematics of both the types of connection you mentioned above?Sadly,google is not answering me (or am i not asking her the right question? )

    Thanks

    :confused:

    It isn't really a schematic issue. You connect them, them measure the combined voltage. A DVM will tell the tale.

    For two transformers of the same voltage, use a meter to check voltage between one secondary lead (say of transformer #1) and another (of transformer #2). If there is a voltage difference, those secondary leads are out of phase. No voltage difference means they are in phase.
