3 disadvantages of ac over dc

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:

  1. First disadvantage is that the shock of the ac is attractive but the shock of dc is repulsive.
  2. At high voltages, it is more dangerous to work with ac than dc.
  3. 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.
