Answer :

A  DC  current  does  not  produce  a  changing  magnetic   field   which  is   capable  of  inducing   current   on   the   secondary    windings   of   a   transformer   through  mutual   induction   process.

What will happen if DC supply is given on the primary of a transformer?
Last Answer : A. Mainly transformer has high inductance and low resistance. In case of DC supply there is no inductance, only resistance will act in the electrical circuit. So, high electrical current will flow through primary side of the transformer. Due to this the coil and insulation will burn out.
