Comments: Alternating Current (AC) vs. Direct Current (DC)


Comments 3 comments

  • Higher voltage means low current? What if low voltages, will it means low current too?

    • That’s not necessarily true. If we are talking about converting AC or DC to a different voltage, then the maximum possible current will change. If we convert voltages (in either AC or DC), then power stays the same (assuming 100% efficiency in your converter). Since P = V * I, if you decrease voltage, then current must rise to keep power the same. Hope that makes sense.
