The Difference Between A Transformer And A Reactor

The difference between a transformer and a reactor:

1. Transformer: the device that uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to change the AC voltage. The main components are the primary coil, the secondary coil and the iron core (magnetic core). The main functions are voltage conversion, current conversion, impedance transformation, isolation, voltage stabilizing (magnetic saturation transformer) and so on. According to use can be divided into: power transformers and special transformers (electric furnace transformer, rectifier transformer, power frequency test transformer, voltage regulator, mine, variable audio transformers, intermediate frequency transformers, high frequency transformer, transformer, instrument transformer, the impact of electronic transformer, reactor, transformer etc.). Circuit symbols often use T as the beginning of a numbering. Examples: T01, T201 and so on.

Two, the reactor is also called inductor. When a conductor is electrified, it will generate magnetic field in its occupied space. So all electric conductors carrying current have a general sense. However, charged straight conductor inductance is small, the magnetic field generated by the strong, so the actual reactor is conducting wire into a solenoid, said hollow reactor; sometimes in order to make the solenoid has larger inductance, then inserted into the core in the solenoid, said iron core reactor. Divided into inductive and capacitive reactance, classification and comparison of science is impedor (inductors) and capacitive devices (capacitor) referred to as the reactor, but because of the past with the first inductor, and is called the reactor, so the capacitor is now known as capacitive device, and reactor as an inductor.
