What is a StepDown Transformer?
What is a down Transformer? 
A stepdown transformer is a type of electrical transformer that decreases the voltage level from the primary winding to the secondary winding. In a Stepdown transformer, the number of turns in the secondary winding is less than the number of turns in the primary winding. As a result, the output voltage is lower than the input voltage. Stepdown transformers are commonly used to convert highvoltage, lowcurrent power into lowvoltage, highcurrent power. A transformer is a highly efficient machine with up to 95% efficiency.

Working Principle of Stepdown Transformer
The working principle of the transformer is Faraday's law of Electromagnetic induction. When an alternating current (AC) is applied to the primary winding of a transformer, it creates a magnetic field around the winding. This magnetic field then induces a current in the secondary winding, which is proportional to the number of turns in the secondary winding. The induced current in the secondary winding produces a voltage drop across the winding, which is the transformer output voltage.

For example, if the primary winding has 1000 turns and the secondary winding has 500 turns, the voltage ratio would be 2:1, which means that the output voltage would be half of the input voltage.
There are two terminologies are used in the transformer One is HV and another one LV side. The HV sides mean The higher numbers of turns or high voltages with thin turns. The LV side means the low number of thick turns.

Transformation Ratio formula
V₂ = Voltage produced at the secondary (load) winding of the transformer
N₁ = Number of turns in the primary winding
N₂ = Number of turns in the secondary winding
I₂ = Current flowing through the secondary windings
I₁ = Current flowing through the primary windings
In a stepdown transformer, where the secondary voltage is lower than the primary voltage, the turns ratio is less than 1.
N₁ > N₂
V₁ > V₂
I₁ < I₂
For example, if a transformer has 1000 turns in the primary winding and 100 turns in the secondary winding, the turns ratio would be
N = 1000/100= 10
This means that the voltage in the secondary winding will be onetenth (or 0.1 times) the voltage applied to the primary winding.
