DIRECT CURRENT ELECTRICITY COULD WORK BETTER OVER LONG DISTANCES

Five things you need to know about:the return of direct current How the idea of channeling direct current electricity using circuit breakers could give rise to supergrids. What is it? In the early era of electrification, the distribution of electricity by direct current (DC) ruled. Thomas Edison’s first electricity utilities in the late 19th century used […]
