One of the mysteries of the English language finally explained.
The ratio of the number of turns on the primary coil of an electrical transformer to the number on the secondary, or vice versa.
- ‘Output voltage depends on turns ratios which are limited to plus or minus one turn.’
- ‘On-site testing of turns ratio is an important basic measurement for power transformer diagnosis.’
- ‘The voltage ratios are equal to the turns ratios so we can just square the voltage ratios to get the impedance ratios.’
- ‘The effect of unequal turns ratios is approximately the same regardless of load current.’
