How to Reduce Your Voltage From 240 to 208?

Use a "step down" transformer to reduce voltage from 240 to 208. Transformers are electromagnetic devices that transfer energy through mutual inductance. Transformers have two inductive windings, a... Read More »

How do I reduce voltage using resistors?

Insert a resistor in your circuit, in series with the component that needs less voltage. The resistor must go in between the voltage source and the component. Putting the resistor in parallel with ... Read More »

How do I reduce DC voltage with resistors?

DividerTwo resistors, connected in series, form a divider that can reduce a DC voltage to any desired value. Connect the free end of the first resistor to your positive DC voltage, and the free end... Read More »

How to Reduce Alternator Voltage?

Reducing the voltage output of an alternator can save a deep-cycle or automotive battery from becoming overloaded and needing to be replaced. Be sure that you can afford a voltage drop in your syst... Read More »
