Transformer

Written by; Joy Smithers / TCCN Staff Writer

A transformer transfers electricity from one circuit to another using inductively coupled conductors. A transformer is basically an electrical device which takes some electricity with one voltage and converts it into electricity with another voltage. It basically turns high voltage (such as carried by power lines) into low voltage (for home use).
