I can tune you in a little mate, The current isn't so "much" dependent on frequency as thats a function of the Voltage applied ( Volts ) and the
resistivity of the circuit.
The best way of laymanning it is like this, imagine a pump pumping water through a pipe. The pump and its pressure = Volts and the water flow = Amps (
current ). The diameter of the pipe ( acts resistively ) so at a certain pressure only so much water can flow without upping the pressure. If you
restrict the diameter of the pipe then less water can flow and a greater pressure drop occurs across this pipe ( Volt Drop ).
Frequency is a different beast as if you were to use AC in the above senario you would have to imagine a pump that can reverse itself which is
impractible for layman terms.
Typically you use a function of Voltage Applied or resistive variance to change current ( in simple terms ) but you can also use chokes ( Inductors )
to limit inrush currents and to boost voltages used in circuits to provide an inductive kick like in the case of Car Coils.
