A transformer is used to change the value of a voltage applied to the transformer's primary winding to a different voltage value taken from the Transformers secondary winding. A rectifier is used to change an alternating current value to a direct current value.

What is difference betweena step up transformer and step down transformer?

The difference between the two transformers is the coil ratios between the primary and secondary windings. A transformer that increases voltage from primary to secondary has more secondary winding turns than primary winding turns and is called a step-up transformer. Conversely, a transformer with fewer secondary windings does just the opposite and is called a step-down transformer.
