After ordering this 200VA, 32V transformer, I realized that it doesn't have a center tap on each secondary, which I need to have. (duh on my part) So I want to use 110V across the 220V primary leads to give me half the voltage at each secondary, resulting in a single secondary of 32V and a center tap.
I know that this works because I have done it and observed that the output is 32V RMS with a center tap, but I want to make sure I'm not throwing away half the VA rating by doing so. I read TONS about transformers trying to get a definitive answer to this, and I think that the core saturation and the secondary wire size and associated voltage drop and heat are the main concerns, along with the fact that the ratio of number of turns is proportional to the ratio of the voltages and inversely proportional to the ratio of the currents in the primary and secondary. So on those points, I think I'm not reducing the usable 200VA, with the possible exception of secondary wire heating.
To illustrate what I mean using the image below, I would wire-nut the middle black and red primary wires together and connect 110V across the top red and bottom black wires. And on the secondary, I would connect the middle blue and green wires and use that connection as my center tap. I would use the top green and the bottom blue wires as my supply rails and there would be 32V RMS across these rails. If that's confusing for me to say rails, I'll add that I'm using a bridge rectifier and 2 shunt capacitors to make them into +/- 45-ish volt rails for an amplifier.
Yes, I know that this is NOT standard, and this is not for a commercial product, so please don't reply simply that this is not standard or that it will void my warranty.
There is a similar question here with 2 answers to my question, but unfortunately those two answers contradict each other exactly. Also, here is a question with a very promising title, but the answers don't answer my question. The other similar questions don't have answers which address the current-rating-doubling part.
Please weigh in if you know whether I can safely get the full 200VA in this way.
