DC (direct current) and AC (alternate current) systems were born around the same time in late 1800s and battled head to head in the well-known “War of Currents”. It might have seen that AC has won the power transmission battle, and DC was all washed out, but it wasn’t. Majority of today’s end-use appliances and electronics use DC at various levels of DC voltage. Improvements in power electronics have enabled engineers to develop circuits capable of inexpensively transforming DC voltages.
