AC Generators – The Basic Workup!

In terms of electricity generation, in its simplest forms, an electric generator is a device converting mechanical energy into electrical energy with minimum loss of power. The source of mechanical energy may be a turbine or an internal combustion engine and is responsible for the amount of electricity generated. The output electrical energy is obtained by the operation of two forces; a rotating magnetic field with stationary armature or vice versa. In case of automobiles, an AC Generator or an Alternator charges the battery. It works on the principles of Faraday’s Law. When a current carrying conductor is placed in the influence of magnetic field, electromotive force is generated. This EMF is the AC voltage that is further converted to…
