Refers to a power source where the current does not change polarity. The most common source of direct current is from a battery source.
Direct current can also be achieved from alternating current by using a rectifying circuit, which is a type of circuit that converts an alternating current to a direct current by use of four diodes arranged in a specific configuration.
The shorthand acronym for direct current is DC.
