# MCQs on Transformer Losses Questions and Answers

## Transformer Losses – Definition

Transformer has multiple losses such as copper, eddy current, Hysteresis, core, stray and dielectric losses. It is free from rotating, windage and friction losses. There are two types of core losses in transformer. Eddy current Losses are produced due to the alternating flux in the Iron Core. Hysteresis losses are produced when directions of magnetic flux is change after every half cycle. All the MCQs on transformer losses are published according to the new study syllabus for academic year 2021-22.

The aim is to provide transformer losses MCQs objective questions and answers to understand the concepts of Power Transformer, auto-Transformer. If you are willing to learn the concepts of Basic Electronics MCQs multiple choice questions with answer then read all the questions and answers. You will be surely able to qualify for all kinds of Quiz / tests / Interviews after understanding the troubles / losses of transformer. If you are a students, technician or teacher then you can learn the basic concept of transformer applications, principle and function.
