The transformer is based on two principles: firstly, that an current can produce a magnetic field and secondly that a changing magnetic field within a coil of wire induces a voltage across the ends of the coil). Changing the current in the primary coil changes the magnetic flux that is developed. The changing magnetic flux induces a voltage in the secondary coil.
currentpassing through the primary coil creates a magnetic field. The primary and secondarycoils are wrapped around a coreof very high magnetic permeability, such as iron, so that most of the magnetic flux passes through both the primary and secondary coils.
Hope this helps.
