Connecting 2 current output lines to get more power

How can I connect 2 current lines (ac or dc, parallel, series or whatever way) to get more power?
Please, in a cheaper way than buying inverters and all that other equipment?
Anyone can send me diagrams. or instructions? (agabrielauto@gmail.com)

A very few such connections can provide the appropriate type of power for a given load, but there is no general rule, except to never mix AC and DC. Nor is there any way to "increase power" overall. Random attempts usually ruin equipment, and are dangerous to people.

Sure. Look at anything with two batteries in it, like a flashlight. And then, study some basic electricity, OK?

Inside your house electrical panel, AC lines are often connected in series. In parallel, all you get is increased amperage, if the voltages match, and trouble if they don't. This will be my last response. Go read a book, not a letter.

I'm not sure i even understand your question. But the theoretical max power transfer occurs when the impedance of the load is the complex conjugate of the impedance of the source.

I'm not going to give you the knowledge to harm yourself. I can't adequately communicate to you 3 years of electrical network theory courses on a forum. I'm also not an electrician, and I don't know the electrical code, and thus not properly qualified to advise you. 110v can kill you. If you don't know what your doing, don't do it.
