You answered your own question, you need a step-up transformer.

There are many flavours of DC-DC converters -- you need one that will handle the amperage load of whatever it is you are controlling - I'm guessing it's the actuator you asked about https://www.instructables.com/answers/Voltage-question/ last week - but didn't mark answered.

Unironically, that question IS answered, by the same answer you'd get for this question.

Get a step up converter.
