A transformer is a power converter that transfers energy between two electrical circuits by inductive coupling between two or more windings. A varying current in the primary winding creates a varying magnetic flux? in the transformer's core and thus a varying magnetic flux? through the secondary winding. This varying magnetic flux? induces a varying electromotive force? (EMF), or "voltage", in the secondary winding. This effect is called inductive coupling. Wikipedia, Transformer (external link)
