Toroidal Transformer Market: Overview
Toroidal transformers are transformers that employ magnetic cores along a toroidal (donut or ring) shape. Donut or circular ring core is made of ferromagnetic materials such as iron powder, ferrite, or laminated iron, around this wire is wound and these cores are electrically passive components. Toroidal transformer provides increased efficiency, design flexibility, and compact design vis-à-vis traditional shell & core type transformers. The usage of toroidal shaped cores has increased on a large scale due to the excellent electrical performance owing to their symmetry. This also limits the escape of magnetic flux outside the core.
Toroidal transformer works according on the same principle as conventional iron core transformer. Depending upon the frequency, the toroidal transformers are assembled over a ring shaped core made from a long strip of silicon steel or permalloy wound into a coil or from ferrite. All the grain boundaries are directed in the optimum direction is ensured by strip construction. This helps in reduction of core reluctance, making the transformer more efficient. The built-in air gaps in the construction of EI shaped cores are eliminated due to the ring shape of the core. The entire surface of the core is covered by the concentrically wound primary and secondary coils. This minimizes the length of wire needed, and also provides screening to prevent the core’s magnetic field from generating electromagnetic interference. Ferrite cores are used at frequencies up to a few tens of kilohertz to reduce losses, particularly in switch-mode power supplies.
Toroidal transformer possesses high electrical efficiency, as the grain oriented silicon steel core is in the same direction of the magnetic core. Toroidal transformer is acoustically quieter than El transformer, due to the absence of air gap between the components. Toroidal transformer can have flexible dimensions, which is a mechanical benefit. By keeping the cross-section constant, the height and diameter can be varied according to the application. Toroidal transformers are easy to mount; thus, they require lower assembly time. Toroidal transformer has low magnetic field dues to its unique construction. Hence, it is suitable for applications in sensitive electronic equipment such as low level amplifiers, medical equipment, and near CRTs.
