Replacing a DC to an AC power supply

Replacing a DC to an AC power supply

(OP)
I was wondering, if I have replaced the DC power supply with an AC power supply for the circuit in Figure1 of the following article, what would happen?
I'll appreciate your help, thank you.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/259087351...

Just to clarify, The DC power supply is connected to two perforated plates in order to generate an electric field, to reduce the viscosity of a crude oil.

RE: Replacing a DC to an AC power supply

Did you bother to read the references? Specifically, "Reducing the Viscosity of Crude Oil by Pulsed Electric or Magnetic Field"

Please refrain from double posting. Your question relates to the viscosity decrease due to external fields, and has nothing to do with design of power supplies, per se.

RE: Replacing a DC to an AC power supply

(OP)
Regardless what the article is about, I am asking that if I wanted to generate an electric field so that the molecules get polarized, why does it have to be a DC current, not an AC, what would happen if I have changed that?, and yes I have read the entire article, thank you for your answer.

RE: Replacing a DC to an AC power supply

If you had read the article, then you would know that a continuous field runs the risk of polarizing the molecules into long chains that will actually increase viscosity.
