Modern society and all of our lives are run by electricity and power. But modern-day appliances and devices all use different power sources and voltages and it sure gets confusing , but do not worry , just take a look at our old voltage article to get a good idea of how everything works.
Here's a few more cool facts about AC and DC voltage that you may not know about.
If you are shocked with 10,000 volts @ 0.01 amp ( = 100W ) , the shock is essentially the same as 100 volts @ 1 amp. If you are shocked with either of the previous mentioned scenarios , both will mostly likely not hurt you , but nevertheless , the shocking feeling will definitely not be pleasant. A higher voltage does help accelerate the shock to penetrate into your insulated skin deeper, this would bring the shock deeper inside your more conductive parts to cause more damage and pain.
Data shows that 6% of all power generated in the US are lost to inefficiency during travel and transmission. Even 10 years ago , that would have equaled to 250 million megawatt hours, which is worth about $20 billion in monetary value. Hence the reason why we are seeing a future that is fully powered by direct current ( DC )
as for conductor research and development pictures, it will be scientifically possible to make all long-distance power lines using a superconductor.
DC voltage is a simple positive and negative type of electricity, power storage is usually in DC. With the future being mobile and compact, we can actually see DC becoming the voltage of choice. In the very distant future, when superconductors have gained traction and an efficient way of transmitting DC voltage is in place. A DC grid would be ideal and we may be able to live in a 100% efficient power grid.
