Electrical Symbols — Transformers and Windings

A transformer is an electrical device that transfers electrical energy between two or more circuits through electromagnetic induction. Electromagnetic induction produces an electromotive force within a conductor which is exposed to time varying magnetic fields. Transformers are used to increase or decrease the alternating voltages in electric power applications.

Since the invention of the first constant potential transformer in 1885, transformers have become essential for the transmission, distribution, and utilization of alternating current electrical energy. A wide range of transformer designs are encountered in electronic and electric power applications. Transformers range in size from RF transformers less than a cubic centimeter in volume to units interconnecting the power grid weighing hundreds of tons.


How to Create an Electrical Diagram Using Transformers and Windings Library

  • Open ConceptDraw DIAGRAM new document page.
  • Select libraries from Electrical Engineering section.

    Libraries from Electrical Engineering section

  • There are a few different ways to place an object into your drawing:

    • Click on an object and then click on the document, at the place you want the object to be inserted.
    • Perform a drag-and-drop from the library to your document.
    • Double click on an object’s icon in the library to place an object in the center of your document.
  • Select the Smart Connector tool Smart Connector. To connect elements using this tool, drag the connector from one connect dot to another.You can use Layers to place connections on different layers.
  • Result: Electrical Diagram.

Star Network Topology →

Nodes of any computer network are somehow organized in a hierarchy or a layout. Some of the common layouts like star network topology are more reliable and some like ring topology withstand high loads better. It is also important to distinguish logical topologies from physical. This diagram represents a typical view of the star network topology. The star network topology is one of the most frequently used network topologies in the majority of office and home networks. It is very popular because of its low cost and the easy maintenance. The plus of the star network topology is that if one computer on the local network is downed, this means that only the failed computer can not send or receive data. The other part of the network works normally. The minus of using star network topology is that all computers are connected to a single point-switch, or hub. Thus, if this equipment goes down, the whole local network comes down.Star Network Topology *

Building Drawing. Design Element — Plumbing →

Planning a water supply system is one of the stages of developing a building drawing. Although materials are constantly improved, design elements for plumbing haven't changed sufficiently for decades. This is due to necessity of maintaining very old systems. The plan and schematic drawing of plumbing equipment, water pipe junctions and, kitchen facilities a is a rather significant element of a building plan. The suite of 4 vector libraries supplied with ConceptDraw solution for Plumbing and Piping Planning includes near 130 vector images of pipes, boilers, water pipe junctions, tanks and other plumbing devices, helpful when creating plumbing and piping plans, and blueprints of sewerage or water supply systems.Building Drawing
