What is the basic operation of a step-up transformer?
It steps up the voltage and steps down the current.
It steps up the voltage.
It steps down the current.
It steps up the current.
Detailed Explanation
The basic operation of a transformer is to step up or step down the voltage in the circuit. If the transformer is a step up then it will step up the voltage and step down the current to maintain the power (i.e. P=VI) in primary and secondary sides of the circuit.
