What is an electrical transformer?

Transformer is an Electro-mechanical energy conversion device which transfers electrical power from one electrical circuit to another electrical circuit by changing magnitude voltage and current

Types of Electrical Transformer

1)  Step Up transformer:-
  • It increases the level of voltage i.e. input voltage is low and the output voltage becomes high.
  •  However, the level of current gets reduced in the same proportion i.e. input current is high and output current is low.
  • But power and frequency remain unchanged.

2)  Step-Down transformer:-
  • It decreases the level of voltage i.e. the input voltage is high and the output voltage  becomes low.
  • However, the level of current get increased in the same proportion i.e. input current is less and the output current is more.
  • But power and frequency remain unchanged.
