Question: Transformer with 3 windings

Answer: A 3-winding transformer is identical to a 2-winding transformer except that the secondary has two sections and is quite often suitable for series or parallel. A typical example would be a 480-volt primary with a secondary of 120/240 volts. "Windings" can be effected by putting taps at various places on one large winding or by making separate coils (either primary or secondary).
