In the last article, we have discussed about the 8 advantages of alternating current over direct current. Today we will discuss the disadvantages or drawbacks of ac over dc. Let us discuss them one by one:
- First disadvantage is that the shock of the ac is attractive but the shock of dc is repulsive.
- At high voltages, it is more dangerous to work with ac than dc.
- In the processes like electrorefining, electroplating etc. , one can not use the ac. In these processes, only dc is used.
These are the 3 disadvantages of ac over dc. If you know more, please mention in the comment section.
