An AC stands for alternate current supply while DC stands for the direct current supply and for the conversion of one form of current to the other, the concepts of physics for the conversion of current from one form to another is used what we call as the inverters. The inverters are the devices that convert one form of current supply into the other and are dedicated for the purpose of conversion of one form into the other. Let us have a look at how this conversion takes place:-
How to Dc to Ac Converter
Why the Need for AC or DC?
Many of the appliances that we use in our homes like television etc. are designed to be operated on DC power supply while the others operate on the alternate form of current. This difference of power usage by the appliances makes us have the designated devices be bought in use for the conversion of one of the forms to other and thus conversion to the desired form of current is made.
The Device Used To Convert AC In DC, An Inverter:-
Obviously an inverter is the device that can be bought in use for the conversion of one form of current into the other. The rectifiers and diodes are fixed within an instrument to bring about the conversion of one form to the other and taking power from the alternate current occupied in the switchboard, the conversion to direct current is then bought about which is supplied to the direct current enabled device. The conversion from DC to AC on the other hand is quite opposite to it. In order to understand both the kinds of current in a better way, you would have to go by the concepts of physics.
I can make you understand this with the help of an example; the mobile charger that you use to charge your Smartphone would actually take the alternate current and then convert it to D.C. The phone thus starts functioning. This charger is actually a small kind of inverter that makes the conversion of one form of current to the other.
The Difference in Alternate and Direct Current:-
The current that keeps on changing its direction at each and every point of time is called the alternate current while the current that stays limited to only one direction is direct current. The power supply that comes from the switch board fixed on your wall is based on alternating current (AC) which will keep on changing its direction every fraction of seconds while the other one that would stay limited to one direction is the direct current.
