Are DC fans quieter than AC fans?
Likewise, what is the difference between AC and DC motors in ceiling fans?
AC means alternating current and DC means direct current. The difference between the two is in how the motors handle the electrical current they receive from the wiring in your ceiling. AC motors use the supplied power from your electrical wiring directly, regulating speeds by controlling the frequency of the current.
Subsequently, question is, which motor is used in fan AC or DC? Alos, talking about mixers used in our houses do use a motor, which can both run on ac and dc as it being a universal motor. But when talking about Indian Railways, the fans used there runs on dc nowadays. They are termed as BLDC(Brushless DC fan). Because in trains, the distribution of power is in form of DC.
