How to measure frequency response of a 1:1 transformer
How can I measure the frequency response, open circuit impedance and short circuit impedance for a 1:1 transformer with a signal generator and a oscilloscope(+ resistors or/and other passive components if necessary)?
For the frequency response; Can I just connect the generator at the primary and the oscilloscope at the secondary and do a frequency sweep or is the process more sophisticated.
Yes, with care. You need to know about AC potential dividers, so amplitude and phase matter. Frequency response for a transformer depends on source and load impedance, so the transformer itself does not have a response. Also be aware that capacitive loading from scope probes can distort measurements: use a compensated 10:1 probe.
What is the designed load impedance for the transformer?
IF it is a 600R 1:1 then I would test it as in the .jpg.
If you are not going to use it in a 600 ohm source system and just drive it direct then eliminate R1.
That is how I would do it.
