DC cables are specifically designed to deal with the different characteristics of power supplies in the direct current arena.


Power cables are designed to facilitate the flow of electrons. In alternating current the flow of charge changes direction periodically. DC always flows away from the generation source. With AC the voltage level also reverses along with the current.


AC is used to deliver power to houses, office buildings, etc. AC can be produced using a device called an alternator. This device is a special type of electrical generator designed to produce alternating current. A loop of wire is spun inside of a magnetic field, which induces a current along the wire. The rotation of the wire can come from any number of means: a wind turbine, a steam turbine, flowing water, and so on. Because the wire loom spins and enters a different magnetic polarity periodically, the voltage and current alternates on the wire.


DC Cables - What Do They Carry?

DC cables carry current that is unidirectional. The flow of current occurs in only one direction. Voltage and current can vary over time so long as the direction of flow does not change. This kind of energy is typically produced by solar cells and batteries and is carried by DC cables
