An adjustable DC power supply is used in electronics prototyping to help test and troubleshoot electronic devices. It takes AC line voltage and turns it into low voltage DC. this can be hooked up to a breadboard among other things for prototyping circuit designs. A non adjustable version of a DC power supply exists in many electronic devices that require something other than 110 AC voltage to function properly.
