    Hi guys,
    Can someone explain me the difference between DC dimmer Circuit and AC dimmer circuit.
    And another question- If the AC is sent through a step down transformer, rectifier, capacitor (to smooth) and then a regulator, the out put will be DC. Am I right? So, instead of doing all these can I use a battery?
    help me figure out these guys
