In this paper, we propose a transformer of alternating voltage source utilizing a semiconductor, operating in bidirectional fashion. Transformer is a device transferring energy by inductive coupling between its winding circuits. Conventional transformer is a device, composed of a primary coil and a secondary coil, transforming an alternating voltage. The system we propose is designed with a single circuit transforming the level of voltage signal in two ways; from the source to the load, and vice versa. For semiconductor switches , the NPN transistor is connected to the alternating voltage source terminal, and emitter terminal is connected to the inductor in the system as an energy storage element. The control signal is applied to the base terminal of the semiconductors. We have shown that the system we propose, by adopting only one circuit, drives an alternating voltage transformer that changes the amplitudes of voltage signal in reciprocal way.
