One of the modern areas of applications developed during last years is effective use of electrical energy produced by alternating current in production of heat energy. This process is ecologically clean.The water is weakly electrically conducting medium (electrolyte). Devices based on this principle are developed during last ten years. Compared to classical devices with heating elements, new devices are more compact.
