Need help winding my own transformer
Im going to make a transformer for residential power, its going to step up voltage then be rectified for charging a capacitor.
Is the current in the primary winding limited by and frequency (60hz) and inductance?
IIRC it should be because XL=jωfL and I=V/XL in my case its 177Vpeak.
If I want to set the current to 5amps then I=V/XL = 5amps=177/XL = XL = 35.4Ω ofcourse this isn't considering resistance per length of wire. Is this correct or will I trip a circuit breaker?
