2 Applied Electricity

3 Reed relay A small current in one circuit is used to switch on a much larger current in another circuit. When the small current is switched on the electromagnet A activates and the iron lever is attracted to it. This causes the arm to move which closes the contact B in the other circuit.

4 A The bell push is closed which allows a current to flow. B The electromagnet becomes magnetized and the armature is pulled to the magnet this makes the hammer hits the gong. As this happens the contact is broken so it not a complete circuit so the electromagnet is de-magnetized. C The armature is no longer attracted so it jumps back. This closes the contact, so electricity flows again and the armature is once more attracted to the electromagnet.The whole cycle is repeated until you stop pressing the bell push.

5 5-18. Electromagnetic Induction The effect of producing an induced current is known as electromagnetic induction. The direction of the induced current can be reversed by reversing the motion of the wire or reversing the field direction. The strength of the current depends on the strength of the magnetic field and the speed of the wire's motion.

6 Electric Motors An electric motor uses the sideways push of a magnetic field to turn a current-carrying wire loop. Electric motors use a commutator to change the direction of the current in the loop. Alternating current electric motors do not use commutators.



9 Michael Faraday ( ) built the first electric motor and discovered magnetic induction.

10 Loudspeaker – Moving Coil A moving coil is moved by a changing input current. The paper cone compresses and rarefies the air. Input

11 Microphone A moving coil activated by voice vibrations is used as a microphone. The coil induces a current in the magnet that can be amplified or recorded.

12 Alternating and Direct Current Alternating current (ac) is current that flows in a back-and- forth manner; household current changes direction 120 times each second (60 Hz). Direct current (dc) flows in one direction. The ac generator (or alternator) produces an ac current and can be modified to produce dc current by….. Use of a rectifier which permits current to pass through it in only one direction.

13 AC Generator As the coil turns the direction and size of the induced current is varied


15 5-19. Transformers A transformer is a device composed of two unconnected coils, usually wrapped around a soft iron core, that can increase or decrease the voltage of ac current.

18 Galvanometer Device used in the construction of ammeters and voltmeters. Based on principle that a current in a magnetic field experiences a force Radial Magnetic Field Current loop or coil Spring Scale

19 Galvanometer Magnet forms a radial field The springs balance the moment of the force or torque from the current in the magnetic field Radial Magnetic Field Current loop or coil Spring Scale

20 Galvanometer used as Ammeter Typical galvanometer have an internal resistance of the order of 60 Ω - that could significantly disturb (reduce) a current measurement. Built to have full scale for small current ~ 1 mA or less. Must therefore be mounted in parallel with a small resistor or shunt resistor. Galvanometer 60 RpRp

21 Galvanometer 60 RpRp Lets convert a 60 Ω, 1 mA full scale galvanometer to an ammeter that can measure up to 2 A current. R p must be selected such that when 2 A passes through the ammeter, only A goes through the galvanometer. R p is rather small! The equivalent resistance of the circuit is also small!

22 Galvanometer used as Voltmeter Must mount a large resistor in series to limit the current going though the voltmeter to 1 mA. Must also have a large resistance to avoid disturbing circuit when measured in parallel. Galvanometer 60 RsRs

23 Galvanometer 60 RsRs Maximum voltage across galvanometer: Suppose one wish to have a voltmeter that can measure voltage difference up to 100 V: Large resistance

24 Photodiode A photodiode is a PN junctionPN junction in reverse bias. When a photon of sufficient energyphoton strikes the diode, it excites an electron, thereby creating a mobile electron and a positively charged electron hole.

25 LED While all diodes release light, most don't do it very effectively. In an ordinary diode, the semiconductor material itself ends up absorbing a lot of the light energy. LEDs are specially constructed to release a large number of photons outwards.

26 Bipolar Transistor The small current between the base and emitter controls the large current from collector to emitter

27 Transistor as amplifier Input signal controls the larger voltage output Looks exactly like the input but bigger amplitude

28 Transistor as switch Small change in base voltage turns on larger lamp Warnings, alarms and computer circuits

41 Faraday's Law Any change in the magnetic environment (flux) of a coil of wire will cause a voltage (emf) to be "induced" in the coil.

42 Faraday's Law

43 Lenzs Law s/movies/MFA07AN1.MOV s/movies/MFA07AN1.MOV gives the direction of the induced electromotive force (emf) and current resulting from electromagnetic induction. The law provides a physical interpretation of the choice of sign in Faraday's law of induction, indicating that the induced emf and the change in flux have opposite signs.electromotive forcecurrent electromagnetic induction Faraday's law of induction

44 Induction Motor No brushes to wear out Induction motors use shorted wire loops on a rotating armature and obtain their torque from currents induced in these loops by the changing magnetic field produced in the stator (stationary) coils torqueinduced magnetic field Bars are really loops

45 Practical Induction Motor This implies that there is no current supplied to the rotating coils. These coils are closed loops which have large currents induced in them because of their low resistance.induced Bars are really loops

46 Induction Coil Father Nicholas Joseph Callan (1799 – 1864) was a Irish priest and scientist from Darver, Co. Louth, Ireland. He was Professor of Natural Philosophy in Maynooth College from 1834, and is best known for his work on the induction coil.IrishCo. Louth Ireland Maynooth Collegeinduction coil

47 Induction Coil

48 It is a type of electrical transformer used to produce high-voltage pulses from a low- voltage DC supply. transformerDC To create the flux changes necessary to induce voltage in the secondary, the DC current in the primary is repeatedly interrupted by a vibrating mechanical contact called an interrupter. contact

49 As in the relay the coil becomes an electro-magnet This time it disconnects the supply. This turning off and on creates a large current in the greater windings of the secondary
