Secondary Winding

Linear nonideal transformer winding


Passive Devices / Transformers / Fundamental Components


The Secondary Winding block models linear nonideal winding of a transformer with linear winding leakage effects. The figure shows the equivalent circuit diagram for the secondary winding.

  • Rl is the leakage resistance.

  • Ll is the leakage inductance.

Dialog Box and Parameters

Main Tab

Number of winding turns

Number of wire turns on the transformer winding. The default value is 10.

Leakage resistance

Power loss in the winding. The default value is 1e-3 Ohm.

Leakage inductance

Magnetic flux loss in the winding. The default value is 1e-3 H.

Variables Tab

Use the Variables tab to set the priority and initial target values for the block variables prior to simulation. For more information, see Set Priority and Initial Target for Block Variables in the Simscape™ documentation.


The block has the following ports:


Positive electrical conserving port
