 A 5KVA, 220 50V, 50Hz, single phase center – tapped transformer which can serve industrially for electric arc welding and electric furnace was constructed. The design analysis of the core type transformer was constructed from 100% locally available tools and materials. The transformer consisted of the core, windings, former, insulation, clamping devices and tank. Test conducted on the transformer showed that an efficiency of 92% power factor of 0.795 and voltage regulation of 86% was achieved.
