the height will depend on local building codes' requirements and also what time of outlet (ground, countertop for kitchen and bath, and ceiling such as in garage doors). Typically wall outlets are 16 inches on center from the finish floor.

What type of current is used in batteries and which is used in household outlets?

In batteries Direct current is used (DC). This is because Batteries do not last very long and therefore are made to have certain voltage that can be used in most electronics. Batteries can be very hazardous if there is a short circuit that occurs. In households the outlets are a form of Alternating current (AC). This is because AC is easier to use and has no big hazards (unless you stick a fork in the socket). If some of the outlets give out (die or burn out) the rest of the remaining sockets in that same area will still work.

How can you convert ac generator in to dc generator?

The two are different machines, but you can connect diodes on the output of an ac generator to produce dc, that's what happens in alternators for cars. A car alternator is a 3-phase ac generator, and you have six diodes. From each of the three phase outlets you have one diode to the positive rail and one to the negative.
