Most automotive applications use DC, although the alternator is an AC device which uses a rectifier to produce DC.
A "generator" usually produces DC current. An "alternator" usually produces AC current. Older cars up to the 1960's used generators. Newer cars use alternators (simpler design) with diode rectifiers to convert the AC to DC. Batteries are DC. Some electronic circuitry (inverters) can change DC to AC.
I would assume that you mean what devices do you use to convert ac current to dc current?The answer is Diodes.seediode-bridge
Because some appliances work with ac current and some with dc current.
The Current in a automobile is DC, you have a battery which is dc, and your alternator produces ac current but converts it to DC inside the alternator unit which gives your battery DC power. So basically everything in your car is DC.
the car use dc current dear
A "Rectifier" converts AC current to pulsating DC current.
Batteries by definition have to be DC. While u can convert DC to AC, with a device called an Inverter, none is built into a car battery. and chances are your car doesn't even have an Inverter anywhere in it. so car is DC. in addition modern cars use 12 volts, and for the record, AC and DC are not a "type of volt," they are types of current, (Direct Current, Alternating Current).
AC means alternating current DC means direct current there is no polarity reversal
The difference AC and DC grounding is that AC is alternate current and DC is direct current. Grounding for both AC and DC is the same.
Yes, there is. AC = Alternating Current, the direction of the current alternates, thus the name. DC = Direct Current. Things like computers need DC (they use a AC to DC converter inside the power supply to convert it) Hope that helps a bit.
dc stands for direct current. This can be obtained from a battery or a rectified ac (alternating current ) supply.
DC, unless you run an extension cord.
