To produce 50 Hz electricity
p=2, n=3000 rpm
p=4, n=1500 rpm

## 2-Salient-pole rotor: Low speed, hydroelectric power plants

To produce 50 Hz electricity
p=12, n=500 rpm

## p=24, n=250 rpm

## 5.1 INTRODUCTION TO POLYPHASE SYNCHRONOUS MACHINES

How does a synchronous generator work?
1- Apply DC current to rotor winding
(field winding)
2- Rotate the shaft (rotor) with constant
speed.
3- Rotor magnetic field will create flux
linkages in stator coils and as a result
voltage will be produced because of
Why is impossible to rotate a synchronous motor when it is
connected to 50 Hz electric power?
Because before connecting to supply, the shaft speed of rotor is
zero. If the motor is two-pole, when it is connected to 50 Hz
supply it suddenly needs to rotate 3000 rpm. This is impossible
for large synchronous motors.

## 5.1 INTRODUCTION TO POLYPHASE SYNCHRONOUS MACHINES

How is DC current applied to the rotor?
1- Slip Rings

## Note: Magnetic field of rotor

can also be produced by
permanent magnets for
small machine applications

## 2- Brushless Excitation System:

Excitation supplied from ac exciter and solid rectifiers. The
alternator of the ac exciter and the rectification system are on the
rotor. The current is supplied directly to the field-winding without
the need to slip rings.
