The US power distribution plant is considered by analysis the various circuit parameters of both AC and DC power plants to deliver 120V DC voltage to the end user. Using a simplistic approach it is shown that AC power distribution is far more cost effective and indeed safe over DC power generation systems delivering the same power of 750 MW

eat generation and maximum thermal resistance of class A and B

The DC input power, heat generation and maximum thermal resistance of class A and B amplifiers are calculated. We know that the AC output power is 200 Watts, and that the Class A and Class B amplifiers operate with the maximum theoretical efficiency. We also know that the BJT power transistor has a maximum junction temperature of 155 degrees C, if the ambient temperature is 25 degrees C. The calculated results indicate that the Class A amplifier is an enormous power waster in comparison to a class B amplifier.
