DC Current Applications Emerging in an AC Environment as Renewable Energies Grow
Most of us don’t realize that the majority of our energy-efficient equipment we use daily in our homes and businesses runs on direct current (DC). This includes computers, lighting, heating and cooling systems, to name a few. But, the power coming in to our buildings is alternating current (AC). The AC has to be converted to DC, this conversion results in lost energy. A solution to prevent this amount of lost energy is achieved by integrating dedicated DC systems in to the building.
