Transformer is a device that is used to convert electrical energy from one alternating current to another circuit by using the principle of electromagnetic induction. Transformers are essentially voltage control devices because they are typically used in the transmission and distribution of alternating current electricity. Since transformer uses the electromagnetic induction principle to increase or decrease voltage, it can either decreases AC voltage (Step-down transformer) or increases AC voltage (Step-up transformer). Transformers consist of wide range of application such as boosting electric generator voltage to permit long-distance electricity transmission and lowering the voltage of traditional power circuits to operate low-voltage equipment such as doorbells and toy electric trains.
