If the primary coil is not wound on a core of the transformer, we cannot connect to the power source as it will be shorted, but the same coil is wound on a transformer core and connected to the power source it will not be shorted.Though the secondary circuit is open.
As the primary circuit is energized magnetic flux is formed in the core and there is no shorting at the primary connection.
If we cut the core into 2 pieces then what happens to the primary circuit (Magnetic flux distrubed)
Can someone please explain how this happens?
