AbstractA century ago, George Westinghouse's AC generating system won out over Thomas Edison's DC invention as the U.S. and world energy standard, and American power generation is heavily invested in AC to this day. But Bidanda and other faculty members, including John Camillus, Donald R. Beall Professor of Strategic Management, Organizations and Entrepreneurship in the Katz Graduate School of Business, and John Wallace, faculty member in the School of Social Work, are teaming to promote DC as a more efficient, green and even humane power source.
