How does a transformer work?
well.. thats not really the question..
I know it works with AC
but is it possible that it would work with DC?
ie. Im using a generator that outputs 60v. and i want it to be 13.5 v
im assuming the generator motor would have some ripple to it.
would the ripple be enough to induce to the secondary coil to make 13.5 v?

No, what you need is a DC to DC converter. The electronics in a DC to DC converter chops the input DC so a step down transformer can lower the voltage to 13.5. The output of the transformer would be rectified and filtered.
