What happens when the CL transformer symbol is flipped horizontally.

Flipping the CL transformer symbol horizontally (H) but retaining the parameters used in the circuit:

Understanding the CL transformer symbol 02

makes a 1:2 turns ratio transformer with a primary inductance of 1/4 H.

Because it is not an ideal DC transformer, the effect of the primary inductance must be taken into account.

The frequency is set to 4 Rad/s so that the reactance of the primary inductance equals 1 Ohm, i.e. the primary voltage has been attenuated to 1/sqrt(2) of the 1V pk-pk input signal.

Because the transformer is a 1:2 step up:

V(sec) = V(pri)*2

Note that:

i) the secondary is open circuit. ii) A 1:M turns ratio transformer with a primary inductance of Lpri will have a secondary inductance of Lpri*M^2
