Two transformers one circuit

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain to me what happens when you have a circuit powered by two transformers drawing power from diffrent sources.  It seems that only one transformer powers the circuit.  Also having a generator on the low side of the transformer seems to have strange effects as well.

You can use this to limit power on particular lines.  For example, previous players have asked how to guarantee that they do not burn out lines.  One way to do this is to use small transformers with no batteries or producers on the 'low power' side.  On a normal wire, one small transformer has a limit of 1kw, so you can't burn it out, even if you have 2kw of consumers -- some just won't work if too many are trying to run at once.  On a conductive wire, you can use two small transformers.
