Could you please explain why the centre tap in the centre tap transformer is grounded?

Expert Answer:

If the centre tap is not grounded, it can produce unbalanced voltages in the two secondary windings due to unsymmetrical currents flowing in the common third connection because of unbalanced loads. To avoid this, the centre tap is grounded.
