Err.. I'm assuming you mean the transformer in the AT PSU? If so, that's the energy storage unit that the PSU uses to regulate the power. Without it, the PSU will be unable to regulate any voltage!
You might be able to re-wind the transformer so that it operates at the 12V, then you'd be able to feed the power into the PSU. You'll find it'll get hotter than normal though, as the current flowing will be much higher than it was designed for.

Any views, thoughts and opinions are entirely my own. They don't necessarily represent those of my employer (BlackBerry).
