For my project, I'm trying to work with the principle of electrovibration. This principle is about simulating textures using low current electricity on an insulated conductive surface (see Wikipedia).
In order to do this, I will be experimenting with generated AC signals of 80 to 160 Vpp at 60Hz to 400Hz. I will do this by using an DC – AC converter, usually used for EL lamp applications.
My only concern is how to limit the current coming from the converter. Are the techniques for limiting AC current the same as DC, by using a simple resistor? Or is it, as I expect, more complex?
I need to limit the current to 0.5mA, for safety reasons.
