Generators are a common form of equipment that may be found in a diverse set of industries and applications, allowing for harnessable electricity to be generated. Generators generally come in one of two forms, those being direct current (DC) or alternating current (AC) variations. While both of these options rely on the principle of electromagnetic induction to carry out their duties, the exact processes that they follow differ. In this blog, we will provide a brief overview of DC and AC generators, allowing you to have a better grasp on their similarities and differences.With an AC generator, one can transform mechanical energy into electrical energy that is in the form of alternating current. What this means is that the current reverses direction regularly, and this form of electricity may be used by most household appliances and other grid-based devices. In an AC generator, the magnetic field-producing magnet is rotated around a stationary coil during electrical induction, ensuring that the poles cause the current to flow in opposite directions to allow for an output of AC current. While the coil can be set to rotate instead of the magnetic field while still guaranteeing alternating current, the method of extracting electricity is much less efficient, making it a less popular option as compared to the rotating magnet design.
