War of the Currents | Thomas Edison's Method of Electricity Generation

During the war of the currents, two companies attempted to promote different ways of generating our electricity. Which two methods were being argued over?
These of course were the two different sources of currents that we can get electrically – alternating current and direct current. Problem B asks, “Who was in charge of each company?”
So the company that was trying to push forward alternating current war run by George Westinghouse and DC current was, of course, Thomas Edison.
Describe how Thomas Edison attempted to push forward his company’s method of electricity generation.
Now, what must have Thomas Edison been thinking? He wants DC power for transmission. But he knows that AC power has a lot of advantages over DC power, especially because it can be stepped up to higher voltages.
So let’s – instead of trying to figure out the advantages of DC, trying to make AC seem unusable. So DC power doesn’t have very many advantages. Edison attempts to promote his own DC power by advertising the dangers of AC power.
To it, he used AC power to torture animals and used it for an electric chair to execute criminals. He did this in order to promote the “safer” DC current power.

Question 30
During the “war of the currents”, two companies attempted
to promote different ways of generating and transmitting
electricity.
(a) Which two methods were being argued over?
AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current). ↙
(b) Who was in charge of each company?
George Westinghouse promoted AC and Thomas Edison promoted DC. ↙

Question 31
Describe how Thomas Edison attempted to push forward his
company’s method of electricity generation.
DC power does not have very many advantages compared to
AC power, especially in the context of transmitting electricity.
So, Edison attempted to promote his own DC power by
advertising the dangers of AC power.
He used AC power to torture animals, and to power an
electric chair for the execution of condemned criminals, in
order to promote his “safer” form of electricity.

Question 32
Explain how a transformer can change the voltage of an
alternating current.
When an alternating current flows through the primary coil
of a transformer, it sets up a changing magnetic field in the
coil, that varies with the same frequency as the current.
The changing magnetic field is applied to the secondary coil
of the transformer, usually by a circular iron core that passes
through both coils.
The changing magnetic field sets up a changing current in the
secondary coil, with a voltage proportional to the number of
turns in the secondary coil.

Question 33
When a simple DC motor is switched on and connected to
the supply EMF, how does the back EMF in the motor relate
to the net voltage on the coil of the motor?
The back EMF acts in the opposite direction to the supply
EMF, so the net voltage across the motor is reduced.

Question 34
Compare the advantages and disadvantages of slip-ring AC
motors and split-ring DC motors.
DC motors contain a commutator to reverse the polarity of
current flow every half-turn, so that current always flows
through the coil the same way; this commutator can
eventually wear down and break.
AC motors avoid this problem by using slip rings instead of a
split ring, but AC motors must operate at a fixed speed based
on the frequency of the power supply.
