1 Answer

The generator which generates DC voltage is called DC generator and generator which generates AC voltage is called AC generator (or) Alternator. In DC generator armature is rotated and field winding will be stationery whereas armature is stationery and field winding  will be rotated in AC generator. A DC generator can generate low voltages but an AC generator can generate upto 11kv.

what is the difference between AC and DC current ?

Answer :

AC is generated using Alternator. DC is generated using DC generator. AC changes its direction periodically. DC do not change its direction periodically. AC have non zero frequency. DC have zero ... Power factor of AC is between 0 and 1. But power factor of DC is always 1.
