transformer

 [trans-for´mer]
an induction apparatus for changing electrical energy at one voltage and current to electrical energy at another voltage and current, through the medium of magnetic energy, without mechanical motion.
step-down transformer one for lowering the voltage of the original current.
step-up transformer one for raising the voltage of the original current.
