    Battery/Accumulator is a real world example of a voltage source. And when we connect load across battery terminal we discharge battery. But we also can recharge the batteries and during charging the battery absorb power.
    We have the same situation with a current sources. When current source provides/delivers the power to the load, current source act like a source.
    But when current source act like a load then current source absorb/consume power.
