Power Supply - Power Conversion

Power Conversion

The term "power supply" is sometimes restricted to those devices that convert some other form of energy into electricity (such as solar power and fuel cells and generators). A more accurate term for devices that convert one form of electric power into another form (such as transformers and linear regulators) is power converter. The most common conversion is from AC to DC.

    The conversion of a savage to Christianity is the conversion of Christianity to savagery.
