Working principle
A generator works on the principles of
Faradays law of electromagnetic
induction
Whenever a conductor is moved in
the magnetic field , an emf is induced
and the magnitude of the induced emf
is directly proportional to the rate of
change of flux linkage.
This emf causes a current flow if the

Principle of Operation
The operation of a synchronous generator is based on Faraday's law of
electromagnetic induction, and in an ac synchronous generator the
generation of emf's is by relative motion of conductors and magnetic flux.
These machines can be used as either motors or generators but their
predominant use is in generation.

machine
a
point to note is that the

Principle of Operation
4Pole Salient Rotor
A Salient Pole Rotor
Principle of Operation
Its characteristic feature is that the
armature rotates through a stationary
magnetic field, and the generated AC
is brought to the load by means of slip
rings and brushes.
The revolvingarmature alternator is
found only in alternators of small
power rating and is not generally used.
This is because a rotating armature
requires slip rings and brushes to
conduct the current from the armature
to the load.
Principle of Operation
The revolvingfield type alternator
has a stationary armature and a
rotating magnetic field.
The generated voltage can be
connected directly to the load
without having to pass across the
slip rings and brushes.
The voltage applied to generate the
rotating field is a small DC voltage
(called a field excitation voltage)
Single Phase Alternator
A singlephase alternator has all
the
armature
conductors
connected in series
The stator is two pole. The
winding is wound in two distinct
pole groups, both poles being
wound in the same direction
around the stator frame.
The rotor also consists of two pole
groups, adjacent poles being of
opposite polarity.
Single Phase Alternator
The two poles of the stator
winding are connected to each
other so that the AC voltages
are in phase, so they add.
As the rotor (field) turns, its poles will induce AC voltages in the
stator (armature) windings. Since one rotor pole is in the same
position relative to a stator pole as any other rotor pole, both the
stator poles are cut by equal amounts of magnetic lines of force at
any time. As a result, the voltages induced in the two poles of the
stator winding have the same amplitude or value at any given
instant.
Three Phase Alternator
The threephase alternator has
three singlephase windings spaced
so that the voltage induced in any
one is phasedisplaced by 120
degrees from the other two.

The

are drawn on a graph phasedisplaced 120 degrees from

Three Phase Alternator
The three phases are independent of each other.
One point from each winding can be connected to form a neutral and
thus make a wye connection.
The voltage from this point to any one of the line leads will be the phase
voltage. The line voltage across any two line leads is the vector sum of
the individual phase voltages. The line voltage is 1.73, (3 ), times the
phase voltage.
Since the windings form only one path for current flow between phases,
the line and phase currents are equal.
Three Phase Alternator
A threephase stator can also be connected so that the phases form a
delta connection.
In the delta connection the line voltages are equal to the phase
voltages, but the line currents will be equal to the vector sum of the
phase currents.
Since the phases are 120 degrees out of phase, the line current will be
1.73, (3 ), times the phase current. Both "wye" and the "delta"
connections are used in alternators.

Three Phase Alternator
The frequency of the AC generated by an alternator depends upon the
number of poles and the speed of the rotor
When a rotor has rotated through an angle so that two adjacent rotor
poles (a north and a south) have passed one winding, the voltage
induced in that one winding will have varied through a complete cycle
of 360 electrical degrees.
A two pole machine must rotate at twice the speed of a fourpole
machine to generate the same frequency.
The magnitude of the voltage generated by an alternator can be
varied by adjusting the current on the rotor which changes the
strength of the magnetic field.
Three Phase Alternator
A two pole alternator produces one electrical cycle for
each complete mechanical rotation.
A four pole alternator will produce two electrical
cycles for each mechanical rotation because two north
and two south poles move by each winding on the
stator for one complete revolution of the rotor.

Three Phase Alternator
Three Phase Alternator
In an alternator the output voltage varies with the load.
There are two voltage drops.{ IR & IXL }
The IXL drop is due to the inductive reactance of the armature windings.
Both the IR drop and the IXL drop decrease the output voltage as the
load increases.
The change in voltage from noload to fullload is called the voltage
regulation of an alternator.
A constant voltage output from an alternator is maintained by varying
the field strength as required by changes in load.

Thus speed can be controlled byFlux control method: By Changing the flux by
controlling the current through the field

Armature control method: By Changing the
armature resistance which in turn changes the
voltage applied across the armature
Flux control
Advantages of flux control:
It provides relatively smooth and easy control
Speed control above rated speed is possible
As the field winding resistance is high the field
current is small. Power loss in the external
resistance is small . Hence this method is
economical
Disadvantages:
Flux can be increased only upto its rated value
High speed affects the commutation, motor
operation becomes unstable
Armature voltage control
method
The speed is directly proportional to the
voltage applied across the armature .
Voltage across armature can be
controlled by adding a variable resistance
in series with the armature

then the voltage across the armature can
be varied by connecting rheostat in a

Thus a MMF N2i2(t) is applied to the magnetic circuit. This will
immediately make a current i1(t) flow into the dot of the primary

remains constant. Otherwise, N2i2(t) would make the core flux change
drastically and the balance between V1 and e1(t) will be disturbed.

Observation: It was shown that the flux in the core is

zero current can produce this flux! In actuality, a current I m, known

Analogy with DC machines
The salient field structure in DC
machines is mimicked along with speed in
an AC machines by a multiphase (2 or more)
winding. The number of poles are
determined by winding distribution and is
independent of the number of phases.
The rotational speed is determined by the supply frequency and
the number of poles, such that an observer in airgap counts same
number of poles per second, meaning the more the number of poles
the slower the machine will run and viceversa.
Induction Motor
Most popular motor today in the low and medium horsepower range
Very robust in construction
Speed easily controllable using V/f or Field Oriented Controllers
Have replaced DC Motors in areas where traditional DC Motors
cannot be used such as mining or explosive environments
Of two types depending on motor construction: Squirrel Cage
or Slip Ring
Only Disadvantage: Most of them run with a lagging power factor
Squirrel Cage Rotor
Slip Ring Rotor
The rotor contains windings similar to stator.
The connections from rotor are brought out using slip rings that
are rotating with the rotor and carbon brushes that are static.
Torque Production in an Induction M
In a conventional DC machine field is stationary and the
current carrying conductors rotate.
We can obtain similar results if we make field structure
rotating and current carrying conductor stationary.
In an induction motor the conventional 3phase winding
sets up the rotating magnetic field(RMF) and the rotor
carries the current carrying conductors.
An EMF and hence current is induced in the rotor due to the
speed difference between the RMF and the rotor, similar to
that in a DC motor.
This current produces a torque such that the speed
difference between the RMF and rotor is reduced.
Slip in Induction Motor
However, this speed difference cannot become zero because that would
stop generation of the torque producing current itself.
The parameter slip s is a measure of this relative speed difference

Assumes negligible magnetizing current
Note Rc has been removed.
The sum of core losses and the windage and friction loses are treated
as constant. This is because as speed increases rotor core loss
decreases (lower f2) but windage and frictionloses increase.With
decrease of speed the converse is true. Thus the sum is constant at
any speed and is termed as rotational loss.

If the shunt and series field aid each other it is called a cum

If the shunt and series field oppose each other it is called a

Armature Reaction(AR)
AR is the magnetic field produced by the
armature current
AR aids the main flux in one half of the
pole and opposes the main flux in the
other half of the pole
However due to saturation of the pole
faces the net effect of AR is demagnetizing
Effects of Armature Reaction
The magnetic axis of the
AR is 900 electrical (cross)
outofphase with the main
flux.
This
causes
commutation problems as
zero of the flux axis is
changed
from
the
interpolar position.
Minimizing Armature Reaction
Since AR reduces main flux,
voltage in generators and torque in
motors reduces with it. This is
particularly objectionable in steel
rolling mills that require sudden
torque increase.
Compensating windings put on
pole
faces can effectively negate the
effect
of
AR.
These
windings
are
connected
in series with armature winding.
Minimizing commutation problem
Smooth transfer of current during
commutation is hampered by
a) coil inductance and
b) voltage due to AR flux in the
interpolar axis. This voltage is called
reactance voltage.
Can be minimized using interpoles.
They
produce an opposing field that
cancels out the AR in the interpolar
region. Thus this winding is also
connected in series with the
armature winding.
Note: The UVic lab motors have
interpoles in them. This should be
connected in series with the
armature winding for experiments.
Question:
Can interpoles be
replaced by
compensating
windings and viceversa?
Why or why not?
