A transformer is designed to convert an AC voltage of 220 V to an AC voltage of 12 V. If the input terminals are connected to a DC voltage of 220 V, the transformer usually burns. Explain.

Becuase the average value of ac is zero, and dc is 220V. the flux increases to very high levels thats the reason behind the buring of the transformer.
