Introduction

Speed

If an object in motion travels a given distance in a given time.

Speed is the ratio of the distance traveled to the time it takes

to travel the distance.

6

Introduction

Linear Speed

The

linear

speed

of

an

object

is

a

measure

of

how

long

it

takes

the

object

to

get

from

point

A

to

point

B
.

Linear

speed

is

usually

given

in

a

form

such

as

feet

Introduction

Angular

(Rotational)

Speed

The

angular

speed

of

a

rotating

object

is

a

measurement

of

how

long

it

takes

a

given

point

on

the

object

to

make

one

Introduction

Acceleration

When

an

object

changes

speed,

an

increase

in

speed

is

called

acceleration
.

Acceleration

occurs

when

there

is

a

change

in

the

force

acting

upon

the

object
.

An

object

can

also

change

from

a

lower

speed
.

This

is

known

as

deceleration(negative

acceleration)
.

A

rotating

object,

for

example,

Introduction to Electrical Machine

To

understand

how

an

electrical

machines

works,

the

key

is

to

understand

how

the

electromagnet

works
.

The

principles

of

magnetism

play

an

important

role

in

the

operation

of

an

electrical

machines
.

17

Review of Electromagnetism

The

basic

idea

behind

an

electromagnet

is

extremely

simple
:

a

magnetic

field

around

the

conductor

can

be

produced

when

current

flows

through

a

conductor
.

In

other

word,

the

magnetic

field

only

exists

when

electric

current

is

flowing

By

using

this

simple

principle,

you

can

create

all

sorts

of

things,

including

motors
,

solenoids,

for

hard

disks

and

tape

drives
,

speakers
,

and

so

on

Magnetic Field

Unlike

electric

fields

(which

start

on

+q

and

end

on

q),

magnetic

field

encircle

their

current

source
.

The

field

weakens

as

you

move

away

from

the

wire

A

circular

magnetic

field

develops

around

the

wire

follows

right
-
hand

rules

field

is

perpendicular

to

the

wire

and

that

the

field's

direction

depends

on

which

direction

the

current

is

flowing

in

the

wire

19

Example of Electromagnetic

An

electromagnet

can

be

by

winding

the

conductor

into

a

coil

and

applying

a

DC

voltage
.

The

lines

of

flux,

formed

by

current

flow

through

the

conductor,

combine

to

produce

a

larger

and

stronger

magnetic

field
.

The

center

of

the

coil

is

known

as

the

core
.

In

this

simple

electromagnet

the

core

is

air
.

MZS
FKEE, UMP

20

Iron

is

a

better

conductor

of

flux

than

air
.

The

air

core

of

an

electromagnet

can

be

replaced

by

a

piece

of

soft

iron
.

When

a

piece

of

iron

is

placed

in

the

center

of

the

coil

more

lines

of

flux

can

flow

and

the

magnetic

field

is

strengthened
.

MZS
FKEE, UMP

21

Strength of Magnetic Field (Cont)

Because

the

magnetic

field

around

a

wire

is

circular

and

perpendicular

to

the

wire
,

an

easy

way

to

amplify

the

wire's

magnetic

field

is

to

coil

the

wire

The

strength

of

the

magnetic

field

in

the

DC

electromagnet

can

be

increased

by

increasing

the

number

of

turns

in

the

coil
.

The

greater

the

number

of

turns

the

stronger

the

magnetic

field

will

be
.

Magnets

A magnet is an object that possesses a magnetic field,
characterized by a North and South pole pair.

A
permanent magnet
(such as this bar magnet) stays
magnetized for a long time.

An
electromagnet

is a magnet that is created when
electricity flows through a coil of wire. It requires a
power source (such as a battery) to set up a magnetic
field.

A Simple Electromagnet

A Nail with a Coil of Wire

Q

How do we set up a magnet?

A

The battery feeds current through the coil of wire.
Current in the coil of wire produces a magnetic field (as long
as the battery is connected).

A Simple Electromagnet

Q
-

How do we reverse the poles of this
electromagnet?

A

By reversing the polarity of the battery!

The Electromagnet in a Stationary
Magnetic Field

If we surround the electromagnet with a stationary magnetic field, the
poles of the electromagnet will attempt to line up with the poles of the
stationary magnet.

The rotating motion is transmitted to the shaft, providing useful mechanical
work. This is how DC motors work!

27

Voltage Induced from a time changing
magnetic field

28

Voltage Induced in a conductor moving in a
magnetic field

Faraday’s Law for moving conductors :
For coils in which wire
(conductor) is moving thru the magnetic flux, an alternate approach is
to separate the voltage induced by time
-
varying flux from the voltage
induced in a moving conductor.

This situation is indicates the presence of an electromagnetic field in a
wire (conductor). This voltage described by Faraday’s Law is called as
the flux cutting or
Electromotive force
, or
emf
.

The value of the induced voltage is given by

E =

Blv

where

E

= induced voltage (V)

B

= flux density (T)

l

= active length of the conductor in the magnetic field (m)

v

= relative
speed

of the conductor (m/s)

The polarity of induced
voltage is given by the
right
-
hand rule.

29

Induced Force (Cont)

The motion of the bar
produces an

electromagnetic
force.
The polarity of the
emf

is

+
ve

where the current
enters the moving bars. The
moving bar

generates a
‘back’
emf

that opposes the current.

The instantaneous electrical power into the bar = mechanical
output power

DC Motor Construction

Basic Construction

Field windings are mounted on pole pieces to form electromagnets.

In smaller DC motors, the field may be a permanent magnet.

The armature is inserted between the field windings.

The armature is supported by bearings .

Carbon brushes are held against the commutator.

44

DC Motor Construction

Armature

The armature rotates between the poles of the field windings.

The armature is made up of a shaft, core, armature windings, and
a commutator.

The armature windings are wound and then placed in slots in the
core.

45

DC Motor Construction

Brushes

Brushes

ride

on

the

side

of

the

commutator

to

provide

supply

voltage

to

the

motor
.

Dirt

on

the

commutator

can

inhibit

supply

voltage

from

reaching

the

armature
.

The

action

of

the

carbon

brush

against

the

commutator

causes

sparks

which

may

be

problematic

in

hazardous

environments
.

46

DC Motor Operation

Magnetic Fields

In small DC motors, permanent magnets can be used for the stator.
However, in large motors used in industrial applications the stator is
an electromagnet.

When voltage is applied to stator windings an electromagnet with
north and south poles is established.

The resultant magnetic field is static (nonrotational).

47

DC Motor Operation

Magnetic Fields

A

DC

motor

rotates

as

a

result

of

two

magnetic

fields

interacting

with

each

other
.

The

first

field

is

the

main

field

that

exists

in

the

stator

windings
.

The

second

field

exists

in

the

armature
.

Whenever

current

flows

through

a

conductor

a

magnetic

field

is

generated

around

the

conductor
.

48

DC Motor Operation

Right
-
Hand

Rule

for

Motors

A

relationship,

known

as

the

right
-
hand

rule

for

motors,

exists

between

the

main

field,

the

field

around

a

conductor,

and

the

direction

the

conductor

tends

to

move
.

If

the

thumb,

index

finger,

and

third

finger

are

held

at

right

angles

to

each

other

and

placed

as

shown

in

the

following

illustration

so

that

the

index

finger

points

in

the

direction

of

the

main

field

flux

and

the

third

finger

points

in

the

direction

of

electron

flow

in

the

conductor,

the

thumb

will

indicate

direction

of

conductor

motion
.

49

DC Motor Operation

Right
-
Hand

Rule

for

Motors

As

can

be

seen

from

the

following

illustration,

conductors

on

the

left

side

tend

to

be

pushed

up
.

Conductors

on

the

right

side

tend

to

be

pushed

down
.

This

results

in

a

motor

that

is

rotating

in

a

clockwise

direction
.

We

will

see

later

that

the

amount

of

force

acting

on

the

conductor

to

produce

rotation

is

directly

proportional

to

the

field

strength

and

the

amount

of

current

flowing

in

the

conductor
.

50

DC Motor Operation

CEMF

Whenever

a

conductor

cuts

through

lines

of

flux

a

voltage

is

induced

in

the

conductor
.

In

a

DC

motor

the

armature

conductors

cut

through

the

lines

of

flux

of

the

main

field
.

The

voltage

induced

into

the

armature

conductors

is

always

in

opposition

to

the

applied

DC

voltage
.

So

it

is

known

as

CEMF

(counter

electromotive

force)
.

The

amount

of

induced

CEMF

depends

on

the

number

of

turns

in

the

coils,

flux

density,

and

the

speed

of

the

motor
.

the

A

of

is

that

Another

is

that
