Energy Converter Tool

Some of which we will discuss are the tools that convert electrical energy into other forms of energy. This is important given the amount of electricity consumption in the unit during operation, depending on how many devices are used, for example when the unit works at night with all the lights on and the air conditioner also works with the ...

Various Kinds Of Alternator

In Figure 16 a single wire / wire node acting as a stator winding and a magnetic rod acting as a rotor illustrates how the AC voltage / voltage is produced within a basic alternator. If two wire / wire nodes again, which are 120 degrees apart, are added to our base alternator, then two separate seperate voltages will be ...

Basic Principles of Alternator Work

Figure 1.13 shows how the AC voltage is generated by electromagnetic induction. In this picture the magnetic field rotates and the conductor is formed into a coil. When the conductor is in a parallel position with a magnetic field, the conductor is not cut off by any magnetic field, at this rotation does not produce current and voltage at all. ...

Basic Principles of DC Generator Work

Before we discuss the workings of AC Generator / Alternator to help us briefly study DC generator to see the system charging in the right perspective. The DC generator shown in Fig. 1.5 consists of a series of armatures, where a soft iron core is fitted with many cable lines. This armature is placed in the housing where it contains ...

Configuration of Cos-Phi Meter Measurements

Cos-Phi meter is a working power factor gauge for ac network that will measure a phase shift between voltage and current on an electrical load. In this case the cos-Phi meter gauge includes an electrodynamic type cross-coil instrument. For the series of cos-Phi meters can be seen in the picture below: Figure 51. Cos-Phi Meter Description of GB cos-Phi meter ...
