So far, The Learning Circuit has focused on DC circuits. Well no more! It’s time to learn about the other major form of power, AC, alternating current. In this video, Karen explains the difference between DC and AC while also talking about how AC can be found in DC circuits. She also explains the various waveform types of AC, how AC is measured, how AC is generated, and how AC can be found around the world.
I hope the SCR controlled bridge rectifier is on your project list. In the generator business, we use it all the time for voltage control (controlling excitation). That... and it's just cool in and of itself - a variable AC to DC source.
