I am studying basic electronics and was thinking about AC current. In
simplistic terms, household electricity in the USA is around 120 VAC
(rms) at 60 Hz, which looks like a sine wave. I know that if the voltage
increases, the amplitude of the waveform increases and you have more
power available. What happens if you increase the frequency but the
amplitude remains the same? Does power increase or stay the same? What
effects does this have on AC in theoretical terms?
I don't think the question has any practical application to my studies,
but it was something I just can't seem to work out. Anyone care to
enlighten me? A general answer would be fine.
Thanks!
