AC GENERATION
Principles of AC Generation The principle of electromagnetic induction has previously been explained as it relates to both dc and ac generators. To repeat briefly, when a conductor is cut by magnetic lines of force, a voltage will be induced in the conductor, and the direction of the induced voltage will depend on the direction of the magnetic flux and the direction of movement across the flux field. Consider the simple generator (alternator) illustrated in Fig. 11-1. A bar magnet is mounted to rotate between the faces of a soft-iron yoke on which is wound a coil of insulated wi…
