If transformer cores are purchased for 50hz operation the specs of that transformer must be given 50hz.

Volts/turn@50HZ and 60hz windings are not long enough so excessive current draw will break down the wire. I think it is a 17 percent variation from 50hz to 60hz. Big changes.

To refresh on transformer practices look here. I hope you enjoy it.

The rest of you who do not have the Engineering tools or have the mind for this type of work, stay home and order.
