But those are also AC generators, simply using electrostatic rather than =
magnetic induction.  You still need a commutator to make DC. ;-)

ooops
Electrostatic charges are DC!

When they discharge the electron "inertia" usually makes them overshoot the
equalibrium and then over shoot back giving an AC with high frequencies and
lots of RFI.

ready for the RFI coming?


Ah ha!
