March 19, 2017 The next test case is of a single-phase transformer. In this model, a basic magnetizing circuit has been simulated which opens the possibility of a detailed magnetic circuit with core loss model and hysteresis. The simulation case considers the transformer fed by an inverter and shows that the transformer can handle switched waveforms.
