If I fed in ~140 volts at 100kHz to This transformer what is the most power I could get out of it? The data sheet rates it at 36 volts DC 3 amps on one of its three outputs but I am confused by this.
First, the saturation current is rated at 7.4 amps so why is the output current significantly less, especially when the voltage is being stepped down by a 4:1 ratio and the output DC resistance is so low.
Second, if I wire the three identical outputs in parallel will I achieve 36 volts with 9 amps or am I mistaken in how parallel transformer outputs work?
Third, If I wired these outputs in series would I then get 36*3 = 108 volts at 1 amps output?
Lastly, these winding ratios are given with the input voltage across pins 2 and 4 on the primary side, I should be able to put 120 volts across just pins 3 and 4 to get a 72 volt, 1.5 amp output, correct?
Thank you for your time, when working with dangerous line voltage I want to make sure I have everything correct. I ask these questions because while I would think they would carry over from what I see on 60hz transformers, I haven't been able to find a good resource on these switching transformers.
