A dc load line is formed by joining the 2 points wherin the slope is equal to the inverse of the load resistance.. whereas the ac load lin has a different slope... and it intersects the dc load line at the quiescent point.

What is the difference between AC and DC line load?

No difference a load is a load however AC/DC defines the type of a load that is.

What are Ac load lines in an amplifier and how they are drawn?

The dc load resistance is Rc but the AC Load resistance is (RcRl). If a load line is drawn the slope of which is -1(Rc Rl) . Then it is called an AC load line and it is to be used when the transistor is operating as an amplifier.

Difference between dc load line and ac load line?

The difference between a dc load line and an ac load line is the source of the electricity. A dc load line is coming from a battery and an ac load line is through a direct electrical current.

Ac and dc load line of BJT-explain?

when the dc supply given, dc load line lies in the Ic and Vcc. when the AC supply given, AC load line lies in the Ic and Vcc.

How many dc 100watts equals to ac watts?

DC 100W equals AC 100W as far as heating and lighting load is concerned. AC load is equated in RMS equivalent to DC Watts.

Can you use a 12V DC power supply for a 110V AC load?

No. You need a 110V AC power supply for a 110V AC load.

Difference between ac load line and dc load line?

well the difference mainly exists in the method of finding them , these are :-1. in finding DC load line :-open all AC sourcesopen all the capacitors2. for AC load line:-open all the Dc sourcesshort all the capacitors.

What is the difference between AC load line DC load line?

DC load line- A straight line joining saturation & cut off point.

How do you calculate primary AC for 3 phase ac input if output load dc current is known?

Ac voltage applied across a load resistance produce alternating current?

The reason an AC voltage applied across a load resistance produces alternating current is because when you have AC voltage you have to have AC current. If DC voltage is applied, DC current is produced.

How are dc and ac circuits the same?

they both can add a load to a circuit

What is difference between AC and DC load line?

The DC loadline is a straight line joining the cut-off point and saturation point. The AC load line can be drawn, after locating the DC operating point, by passing through the Q point.

When you short two wires of 24V dc there is no sparking in telephone lines why?

because it dc not ac

What is meant by resistive load and reactive load?

A resistive load exhibits a pure resistance all the way down to DC. A reactive load (an inductor) presents negligible resistance at DC but 'appears' as a resistance (reactance) to AC. Therefor a reactive load is frequency dependent and will need to be calculated relative to the AC frequency of operation.

What does DC Load and AC Load stand for?

The terms a.c. and d.c. stand for alternating current and direct current, respectively.

What type of ac motor will operate at a constant speed from no load to full load?

The Synchronous motors will operate at a constant speed from noload to fullload. Even it is classified as an AC motor, we have to fed the motor both AC and DC supplies. That we have to supply DC to the Field (Normally Rotor) and AC to the Armature (Normally Stator).

When you stepup ac voltage the current drops.What will happen with CURRENT if DC is stepped up?


Does a transformer convert AC to DC?

No, a transformer does not change AC to DC. For this purpose there is a device known as a rectifier, and to transform it back to AC from DC you'll need an inverter. Transformers are only useful with AC due to the alternating waveform which induces a voltage in the secondary winding (when it is connected to a load).

What is physical significance of rms value of ac?

rms value of ac power = dc power in reference to heat production in pure resistive load So ac power of some rms value will produce the same heat in resistive load as dc power will of same value

What is DC load flow?

DC load flow is a method to estimate power flows through lines on AC power systems. An accurate solution of the power flows on an AC system is a non-linear problem. Consequently it requires an iterative approach and there is no guarantee of reaching a "convergent" solution. A "DC" load flow uses a simplified, linear form of modeling the AC system. Consequently its solution is non-iterative, and absolutely convergent. It becomes a routine algebra problem, solving multiple equations with multiple variables. It is inherently less accurate than a "full" AC load flow solution, but it is useful where fast, dependable solutions are essential, and the approximation is acceptable. In reality, there is nothing "DC" about a DC load flow. It solves for phase angles (an AC, reactive characteristic); it ignores resistance (a DC characteristic); and it ignores voltage (because the objective is just power flow). It probably derives its name from the similarity between this solution method and the method used to solve a DC system, which is also linear, non-iterative and absolutely convergent.

How does a 'DC dual power' supply work?

Dual conversion uninterruptible power supplies operate by converting incoming utility AC power to DC and then convert the DC back to AC power connected to the load.

How do you flow ac or DC current?

When you connect a load (motor, light bulb, etc.) in series with a power supply, current will flow, whether AC or DC depends on the power supply you are using.
