lyrics

A parabolic mirror in the desert.
reflects the waves of solar radiation,
to a tube filled with oil at its focus,
which then runs to a solar power station.

The oil in the tube then heats the water,
which turns a turbine when it turns to steam,
which spins a coil of wire near some magnets.
They’re generating electricity.

It’s AC current!
They’re generating.
It’s alternating,
from the rotating.

Through the dessert!
Along the poles,
and coming in,
to power our homes.

An adapter is then plugged into an outlet.
Electricity flows through a transformer.
Then it passes through a full-wave rectifier,
which is really just four diodes in a square.

The voltage from the wall is still too wavy.
So before it can be used in a machine,
a capacitor assists it with the smoothing,
and now it flows with more consistency.

It’s DC current!
I’ll say directly!
Easy to work with,
more elementary.

An adapter,
is all you need,
to turn the AC
into DC.
