How to convert AC to DC.

In the modern era, almost every household electronics works on Direct Current (DC) but we get Alternating Current (AC) from power generation plants via transmission lines because AC can be transmitted more efficiently than DC at lower cost. So every appliance which works on DC has and AC to DC converter circuit.

In this video, we will discuss traditional Transformer based design which use simple diodes and capacitor to convert the Alternating current into Direct Current and an optional voltage regulator to regulate the output DC voltage. The project will be an AC-DC converter using Transformer with an input voltage of 230V and output of 12V.

Just a quick video outlining the logic of how to convert DC electricity into AC. This process is useful for driving AC motors at different speeds, changing solar panel power into AC electricity. Enjoy the video!

In this video, three phase dc to ac converter or dc to ac inverter (180 degree bridge inverter) is shown. How is it works, its waveforms phase and line are drawn step by step. It converts DC into AC, so it is called DC to AC converter or inverter, and its frequency can be changed, that's why we can say it VFD inverter, variable frequency drive.

Discussed

1. Circuit Diagram of DC to AC Converter or DC to AC Inverter

2. Functions of freewheeling diode, DC link capacitor.

3. Why it is called 180 degree bridge inverter.
