    Hi guys,

    I am looking to know the difference between normal transformer and isolation transformer. Does anyone know any reference or document to explain the function of a isolation transformer?

    Isolation transformers are the same as regular transformers except that they have special insulation between the primary and secondary windings.  You see these type of transformers in swimming pool applications and health care areas.
