Also asked, how do you calculate DC to AC?
Historically there was interest in relating thepowersourcing capabilities of AC to DC.Tocalculate the power through a load powered by DCallyou need to do is multiply the power by the current: Volts *Amps =Power. The problem in doing this with AC is that thevoltageis continuously changing.
Subsequently, question is, why do we convert DC to AC? We need to convert AC to DCbecauseof below facts: AC signals can not be stored andDCpower or signals can be stored.Thus,to store theelectrical energywe need to convert it intoDC. AC canbe transported over long distances becauseof it's frequency anddc can not be transported as dchas zerofrequency.
Then, are AC and DC amps the same?
DC Amps and AC amps are theexactsame thing, they are the measurement of electrons pastagiven point, the difference is that the electrons of ACgoback and forth (alternating) and DC go only in onedirection(direct).
Is AC power equal to DC power?
Summary: Watts out DC = 75% to 90% ofACWatts in, in most cases. See below: At 100% efficiency ADCWattsout = AC Watts in. Energy is 'conserved" and energy =Wattsx time.
