The difference between AC generator and DC is

Welcome to Catalytic, a blog to discuss the discussion of subject matter from Higher Education, High School, Middle School and Elementary Schools. This time, Katalistiwa will discuss a question that is often asked in school exams. The questions are: The difference between AC generator and DC is 

 

The difference between AC generator and DC is

The difference between AC generator and DC is 

Answer :

 

The difference is that the AC Generator has a rotor in the form of a magnet and a stator in the form of a cable. While the DC generator has a rotor in the form of a coil and a stator in the form of a magnet. AC generators produce energy electricity back and forth and the DC generator produces electrical energy in the same direction.

Detailed discussion of AC and DC generators

AC generators are generally applied to power plants, in contrast to DC generators which are widely applied to devices electronic household. The electric current generated by AC is relatively larger when compared to a DC generator. The electric energy created by AC is caused by the rotation of the magnetic force along the cable. In contrast, the electrical energy in DC generators is caused by the permanent magnetic force along the cable. In Indonesia, the frequency of electric current generated by AC generators ranges from 50 – 60 hertz. However, the frequency of the electric current in the DC generator is 0 because the shape of the current is straight with no amplitude. The amount of electrical energy released by an AC generator is always changing. Whereas a DC generator emits electrical energy with a constant magnitude. In an AC generator, the electrons move forward and backward. While in a DC generator, all the electrons move forward.
