Advantages of Pulse Transformer | disadvantages of Pulse Transformer
This page covers advantages and disadvantages of Pulse Transformer. It mentions Pulse Transformer advantages or benefits and Pulse Transformer disadvantages or drawbacks.
What is Pulse Transformer?
Pulse transformer consists of one primary winding and one or more secondary windings. It is used as pulsed mode of triggering. The figure-1 depicts isolation using pulse transformer.
As shown, triggering circuit (on left) is electrically isolated from BJT by pulse transformer. Hence if there is any electric damage to BJT, there will be no effect on triggering circuit part.
Benefits or advantages of Pulse Transformer
Following are the benefits or advantages of Pulse Transformer:
➨External power is not required for its operation.
➨It is very simple to use.
Drawbacks or disadvantages of Pulse Transformer
Following are the drawbacks or disadvantages of Pulse Transformer:
➨Pulse transformer saturates at lowe frequencies. Hence it can be used for higher frequencies only.
➨Due to magnetic coupling, the signal is distorted.
