Alternating current VS direct current transformers

Most of   the   people   might   have   heard  about   alternating   current   and   direct   current,   they  are  nothing   but   two   ways   in   which   electricity   flows   frequently.  A   simple   term   in   which   you   can  differentiate them is the direction by which the electrons flow.  Voltage can be explained like the  moving electron with a recitalist such as a wire that has been connected for power supply. When electrons float gradually  in a particular  direction or especially in forward direction,  it’s  called   direct   current.   Whereas,   in   alternating   current   they   will   not   go   steadily   instead   keep  changing   directions,   sometimes   flowing   forwards   and   next   moment   going   backwards.   For  example, the voltage that comes from the wall pipelines in several buildings including our house  & office is the common type of AC. So the power that reaches to our destination is still AC. At  present, it is being passed across the nation in wires far more proficiently  compared to DC  where the electric power is permanent. Electric tube light, bulb and flames can work on 230 volts of alternating current and some other  household items like televisions has an in­house electric supply which changes the 230 volts  to  a   low   down   direct   current   that   is   out   of   harm,   safe   and   tolerable   to   the   electronic   coils.  Alternating current slowly substituted DC progression system because it was introduced much  safer to transmit over the long miles and gave more voltage.  In a power plant, alternating current that comes from a generator can be step up or down by a  different machine named as transformer. Transformer is device generally set up on the electrical  pole at the side of road corners.   They have the capacity to transform high voltage into low  electricity   which   is   suitable   for   your   home   electrical   apparatus   such   as   light,   television   and  refrigerator etc. Alternating voltage can even be changed to DC by an adapter that you can be  utilized   to   charge   your   laptop   battery.   Most   of   the   people   are   aware   about   the   function   of  electrical transformers; they are being used to convert voltage from one stage to another and  normally from high electric power to a lower voltage. This   process   is   carried   out   by   using   the   theory   of   magnetic   stimulation   between   circuits   to  transfer   voltage   and   change   the   existing   levels.   Usually   transformer   has   a   number   of   key  characteristics of voltage and magnetism to transform Alternating current. Direct transformers  also exist now, but they will not substitute AC transformers. It has been seen that DC can’t be altered with the pattern of the transformer, it’s all because  direct current will not be modifying in a similar manner as AC does. This was the major reason  that AC scored high over DC at the time when voltage began to be utilized all over the world.  As all are using AC, it is now very late and not possible to alter to DC system.
