I probably sound like a broken record on the subject, but when it comes to current news on transformers, the first thing to pop up in a search is the impending solar flare problem. And I will admit, every time they pop up in a news article on television or my computer I have to stop what I am doing to check it out.

Luckily this is a fairly rare occurrence, but when it does happen, it is a rough adjustment. Power is distributed through the power lines with the help of electric transformers. These transformers store and transport energy, and convert it from electrical currents to voltages. Continue reading
