The transformer The transformer is an essential component of modern electric power systems. It converts electricity with a low current and a high voltage into electricity with a high current and a low voltage (or vice versa) with almost no loss of energy. This paper reviews the history of the development of the transformer from Faraday's experiments in 1831 to the modern-day oil-cooled version. A brief forecast is made of its future development.
