Do generators create AC or DC?

Do generators create AC or DC?

Two kinds of generators emerged. The first type was a generator of direct current (DC) electricity. The second type was a generator of alternating current (AC) electricity. In truth, a DC generator could generate AC current, but it contains a simple device called a commutator to turn AC into DC.

What is the diff between AC and DC?

Both AC and DC describe types of current flow in a circuit. In direct current (DC), the electric charge (current) only flows in one direction. Electric charge in alternating current (AC), on the other hand, changes direction periodically.

How can an AC generator be converted to a DC generator?

The slip rings used in the AC generator can be removed and split rings can be replaced instead. Now, AC generator uses concave magnets, change them and lastly remove the coil and replace it with armature instead. The AC generator will start functioning as a DC generator.
