Understanding the Control Transformer

The control transformer is typically a smaller isolation transformer with a very specific purpose—“to reduce the line voltage to the value needed to operate control circuits” (Info.com, 2013). Commonly, the control transformer is made of two primary windings and one secondary winding creating a 2:1 turns ratio. Generally, the primary windings are rated for 240 V and the secondary is rated for 120 V.
