Transformer dot convention detector

This circuit is Transformer dot convention detector that can detect the polarity of any transformer.


Transformer dot convention detector

Dot convention refers to the phase shift between input voltage (primary) and the output voltage (Secondary) of any transformer. 
In some transformer applications its very important to know the transformer polarity (dot convention).
