While all wiring and connectors for power are sealed, redundant NEMA enclosures, step-down transformers
, and disconnect interlocks are offered as prewired enclosures.
(Dimmer switches work only with 110-volt incandescent lights, not step-down transformers
.) Photo and electronics shops sell small red bulbs that glow deeper red than Christmas-tree lights.

One of the problems with the power chargers for all the digital devices you carry around is the step-down transformer
circuit shown in Figure 1 is based on a resonant inverter that uses transistors and a high-frequency step-down transformer
to perform voltage conversion.
Because the site ran on 660V, Quantum Controls also needed to supply and install a step-down transformer
to match the supply to the drive, together with a step-up transformer to match the drive's output to the needs of the water pump.
Three-phase and single-phase AC voltages and currents are measured from the lab's step-down transformer
, the DES line terminals, the load, and other locations of interest within the DES.
The researchers created a network model that had a node for each generating station, substation, and step-down transformer
on the grid.
The physical structure of the grid (its "topology") and flow of power (active and reactive) across the network from generating stations along transmission lines to customers, via step-up and step-down transformers
, and the regulation of aspects of power quality such as voltage and frequency, is enormously complex.
Step up and step-down transformers
are used at different places for different functionality.
