Question: What is a Transformer?

Answer: A transformer is an electrical device that by electromagnetic induction transforms electric energy from one or more circuits to one or more other circuits at the same frequency. By varying magnetic relationships or values of the input versus the output, a transformer produces changed values of voltage and current. A transformer works by having the input windings made around a core of special steel that conveys the pulses of AC current to output windings around a core of special steel that conveys the pulses of AC Current to output windings around the same or connected portions of the steel core.
