I will try to have that covered in a future video. I am kinda backlogged right now.

We are also planning on doing an "EV Mailbag" and debunk common EV myths (why can't I just hook a generator to the motor to power the motor?)

I'll make sure we get some discussion going on the AC stuff. In general though, all of the AC to DC is all built in and taken care of internally in the AC drive. This is a big magic box that is commonly used for all sorts of AC motors in factories and other industrial settings.
