Abstract : An energy transformer is defined as a reversible device which converts free energy of one form into another and vice versa. Basic transformer equations are derived for these devices which are good for both steady-state as well as transient operations. Using the transformer analogy, interacting systems can be represented by a single equivalent circuit from which transient and steady-state responses and interacting effects can be calculated. The method is applicable to nonlinear as well as linear systems. Examples are given to illustrate its applications in electromechanical and hydromechanical systems. (Author)
