Transformer VA question
Gooday, can anybody help with some advise plse.
I have got two transformers which are exactly the same. Both are 250VA transformers 0-12VAC secondary output 20A. If I should connect them in series then I would get 24VAC at 20A. So I will have a 500VA transformer. 24x20=480VA. Is this correct ?

Yes, the VA of a transformer is a matter of how much iron you got, so double amount of iron is double VA.
