transformer

  

Definition

Device that converts an alternating (A/C) current of a certain voltage to an alternating current of different voltage, without change of frequency, by electromagnetic induction. A 'step up' transformer receives a low voltage and converts into a higher voltage, and a 'step down' transformer does just the reverse.
