Step Down Transformer Core

    Ive been doing some research on Step down transformer cores with no
    success. I need to find out What material the core consists of, as
    well as a reason why the material in the core might fail ultimately
    stuffing up the whole transformer.
     
  2. Is the core made of laminated sheets of iron or a solid ceramic
    ferrite? The only failure modes I know if for laminated silicon iron
    is failure of the surface coating, allowing excessive current to
    circulate between layers, or complete rusting of the iron. The main
    failure mode of ferrite is cracking.
    How do you know the core is responsible for the transformer failure?
