An electrostatic transformer includes: a first fixed electrode; a second fixed electrode; a movable electrode displaceably supported by a flexible member within a space between the first fixed electrode and the second fixed electrode; and permanently charged films disposed on electrode surfaces of the movable electrode. And: an AC output voltage corresponding to a change in an electric charge induced at the second fixed electrode by displacing the movable electrode in response to an AC input voltage applied between the first fixed electrode and the movable electrode is extracted; and a ratio of the AC input voltage and the AC output voltage is determined based upon a ratio of an electromechanical coupling factor at an input-side electrostatic actuator, configured with the first fixed electrode and the movable electrode, and an electromechanical coupling factor at an output-side electrostatic actuator, configured with the second fixed electrode and the movable electrode.
