High Voltage

Like many people from my generation, I was first introduced to the concepts of alternating current and direct current from the moniker of the iconic rock band AC/DC. It wasn’t until I reached my physics class in high school, however, that I learned the importance of these two electrical charges.

As you can probably ascertain, direct current is a charge that never changes it direction. Due to its consistency and low wattage, direct current is commonly found in low-voltage devices, especially those that are powered by batteries, which have constant positive and negative sides. Alternating current, on the other hand, reverses direction periodically and creates much more energy; it is utilized in everything from household and business electricity to an AC motor
