A transformer consists off a primary and secondary coil wrapped
round the same iron core.
They only work with a.c.
Transformers are used in the national grid.
Step-up transformers:
Increase voltage.
Have more coils on the secondary than on the primary coil.
Step-down transformers:
Decrease voltage.
Have more coils on the primary than on the secondary coil.
