Commercial power is provided as alternating current (ac) , a silent, seemingly limitless source of energy that can be generated at power stations, boosted by transformers, and delivered over hundreds of miles to any location in the region. Seeing what this energy is doing in small slices of time can provide an understanding of how important simple, smooth ac power is to reliable operation of the sophisticated systems that
