6. Determining voltage step up or step down
How many turns between each and how close you are to the end
7. purpose of line compensator
Measures the voltage and adjusts to precisely 220 V
8. primary side of the step up transformer controls _____
Voltage
9. Parts of the secondary circuit

•  Rectification circuit
•  x-ray tube
10. Parts of filament circuit
•  Rheostat
•  Step-down transformer
•  Filament ammeter
11. Filament circuit controls
current on the tube
12.  The induction of an electromotive current by varying the motion of a conductor across a magnetic field or by a change in magnetic flux in a magnetic field.
electromagnetic Induction
13. In the filament circuit where is the voltage supplied from
Voltage is supplied by the autotransformer.
14. first circuit produces a current and the motion Varying current supplied to Primary coil Induces current in secondary coil
Mutual Induction
15. the primary side is the side Supplied with AC. and Is the “input” portion of the transformer

mutual induction
16. _________is one whose secondary voltage (VS) is greater than its primary voltage (VP). This kind of transformer "steps up" the voltage applied to it.
A step-up transformer
17. __________is one whose secondary voltage (VS) is less than its primary voltage (VP). This kind of transformer "steps down" the voltage applied to it
A step-down transformer
