The Voltage Transformer is used to take energy from either a 10kV Wire or a Blue Alloy Wire and transform it so that it has a higher or lower voltage level. If power is coming in through a 10kV Wire and out through a Blue Alloy Wire, the packet size (voltage) will decrease from ~10,000 (the average packet size of 10kV Wire) to ~100 (the average packet size of Blue Alloy Wire) and vice versa. Note that, while viewing the current with a Voltmeter, the amperage (quantity of energy packets) and voltage (energy packet size) changes by a factor of ~100, the actual quantity of power (wattage) remains unchanged. The only thing changing is the size of the packets that the power is being transferred in. There are currently no machines capable of using the higher voltage. However when transporting Blutricity over a longer distance the power loss will be smaller using the 10kV Wire than using the normal Blue Alloy Wire.
