Danger warning[edit]

This article shows a transformer with an open secondary, high-voltage side. Although the voltage source is not further detailed, this setup can potentially create a very high and potentially deadly voltage on the secondary side. Maybe advising caution would be useful here? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:39, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

Missing: In the 'methods' section, it currently says "Since the impedance of the series winding of the transformer is very small compared to that of the excitation branch, all of the input voltage is dropped across the excitation branch.". The problem here is - I can't see any diagram that shows a series winding and an excitation branch. So the information is currently next to meaningless when nobody sees any diagram. I'm thinking. If details like this are added, then it's necessary to be complete. KorgBoy (talk) 06:09, 29 April 2017 (UTC)
