Why is there less loss of energy during the transmission of AC current?

Expert Answer:

The wires used for transmission of AC current are resistive elements i.e. They have a small resistance.Whenever AC current is made to pass through a resistance ,heat is produced due to heating effects of current.This leads to loss of energy during the transmission.

Remember that the power is dissipated in an a.c circuit in resistance only.
