Why do our X-ray machines use DC high voltage instead of AC?
We know that current is divided into alternating current and direct current. In our daily life, we contact and understand more about alternating current. The discovery and promotion of alternating current was the great inventor Edison, and the discoverer of direct current was the well-known Tesla.
So why do we generally use direct current in X-ray machines, rather than the more familiar alternating current?
We can get a glimpse from the waveform diagrams of alternating current and direct current. As time goes on, the direction of the amplitude and voltage of direct current does not change, while alternating current will change periodically with time.
Simply put, direct current is more stable than alternating current. Therefore, in the X-ray machine, we will use DC high voltage, and the circuit boards that we contact in our daily life are only powered by DC power.
