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.
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 . 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.
