What happens if one of the poles of the primary winding of a transformer is connected to one of the poles of the secondary winding of said transformer, such that electricity
- leaves the power source,
- enters one of the poles of the primary winding,
- passes through the primary winding,
- exits the primary winding at its other pole,
- passes through the connecting wire to one pole of the secondary winding,
- passes through the secondary winding,
- exits the secondary winding at its other pole,
- passes through a resistor of some sort (to keep this from just being a short circuit),
- returns to the power source?
Yes, I have read this question. That one describes an isolation transformer shorted at each end, so that electricity can simply bypass the transformer; my question is about a transformer wired in such a way that electricity is forced to pass through both windings, one after the other.
