GENERATOR THEORY
GENERATOR THEORYElectricity is produced in a generator by electromagnetic induction. As explained in Chap. 1, it is a fundamental principle that when there is a relative movement between a magnetic field and a conductor held perpendicular to the line of flux, an emf (voltage) is produced in the conductor. If the ends of the conductor are connected through a circuit, the voltage will cause a current to flow, as shown in Fig. 10-1. The direction of current flow is determined by the direction of the magnetic flux and the direction in which the conductor is moved through the flux.
