Lets say I have a transformer with 2 identical secondary windings wound in the same direction. Can I connect them in parallel to double the current they can handle? Is this essentially the same as using one winding of double the thickness?
I probably should have mentioned that I'll be winding the secondary myself, so there will be no confusion as to which side of the winding is where. I just wanted to check if this was even possible, as it's much easier to wind several thin coils than it is to wind one very thick coil.
