Answer / baloch

Its Only the difference of Voltage Level. Power Transformer
Can be any rating and so the Distribution. Voltage level upto
36 KV are marked as Distribution Transformer and above than
that voltage level are called the Power Transformer.

Is This Answer Correct ?    0 Yes 0 No

Answer / chandramohan

A power transformer is in the device, such as in your
stereo, and it converts line voltage (120VAC) to the
voltages needs in the stereo's power supply. A distribution
transfer is on the utility
