# AC vs DC electrical power systems

5:41

Differences between alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) are a fundamental concept in electrical systems. In this video we discuss each one, the differences and their applications. Seth So, Power Systems Experience Center Engineer, explains • properties for • DC power and how its linear relationship can be described by Ohm’s law V=IR • AC power and how modified Ohm’s law V=IZ is used to account for complex impedance • applications that use AC power • applications that use DC power • power systems that include both AC and DC power (i.e. solar grids, UPSs) Converting AC and DC power using rectifiers and inverters video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-sQdpebRH4 For an explanation on var and kvar – reactive power, watch our video here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OECFsfKxyYo Thank you for watching one of our many educational videos on the topic of power systems.
