What are the problems one can expect with low supply voltage or fluctuations in split AC?

depends on how low incoming ppower is unit will have min max allowable voltage on name plate but the lower the voltage the higher the amperage draw which can reduce life of compressor or even kill it

Changes in load results in fluctuations. Fault also results in fluctuation

DC does not travel through a capacitor for long because there is a buildup of charge on the plates and when the voltage matches the supply voltage, mo more current flows. But capacitors are used to smooth a DC supply because a capacitor acts a bit like a small battery and can prevent any rapid fluctuations in the supply voltage.

1. mainly by utilizes of the transformer of high and low voltages. 2. mail supply if input supply variations have....fluctuations occur.

There is always voltage fluctuations in home voltages. It is due to loads coming on and going off line on the primary distribution supply. The utility company is mandated to maintain a plus or minus voltage of 10%. If the voltage is within this range no voltage stabilizer is needed.
