What types of devices require AC power as opposed to DC power?

Alternating Current (AC) and direct current (DC) describe the electricity used to power electronics. In the U.S., many household devices use AC power.

Battery powered devices and European electronics often use DC power.

VPI Engineering designs both alternating current (AC) and direct current (DC) powered systems.
