5 15-2 Magnetic Induction and the DC Generator Faraday’s Law e = N dΦ / dte = the induced voltage in volts (V)N = the number of series-connected turns of wire in turns (t)dΦ/dt = rate of change in flux in Webers/second (Wb/s)e = B L vB = the flux density in teslas (T)L = the length of the conductor that is in the magnetic field in meters (m)v = the relative velocity between the wire and the flux, in meters/second (m/s)

23 Generator Efficiency Pin = T nr / 7.04 Pin = the input power in watts (W)T = the input shaft torque in foot-pounds (ft-lbs)nr = the rotation speed of the shaft in revolutions per minute (rpm)η = Pout / Pin = Vt It / (T nr / 7.04)η = the efficiency (dimensionless)Vt = the generator terminal voltage in volts (V)It = the generator output current in amperes (A)
24 Generator Losses Rotor Copper Loss Rotor Core Loss Field Copper Loss This is the I2R loss in the rotor due to the resistance of the wire.This loss varies with the square of the rotor current.Rotor Core LossBecause the rotor core (the iron upon which the rotor windings are wound) is rotating inside a magnetic field, there will be eddy current and hysteresis losses in the rotor core.These losses vary with the field flux and the rotor speed.Field Copper LossThe I2R loss in the field windings due to the resistances of the wire.This loss varies with the square of the field current.
25 Generator Losses (continued) Brush LossThere is power loss in the brush-commutator interface.This loss is proportional to the rotor current and brush drop and is VbIa.FrictionThese are losses due to mechanical friction.They include the friction of the shaft bearings and the friction created by the commutator and brush assembly.WindageThese are losses due to the wind resistance of the rotor.In most generators, cooling fins are attached to the rotor to circulate air through the generator, thus promoting cooling and allowing the generator to be operated at higher output currents.These cooling fins increase the windage loss.
26 15-4 Motor Action and the DC Motor F = B L IF = the resulting mechanical force in newtons (N)B = the flux density in teslas (T)L = the effective length of the wire (meters) in the field multiplied by the number of turnsI = the current in the conductor in amperes (A)Ia(start) = (Vt – Vb) / RaIa(start) = the armature starting current in amperes (A)Vt = the applied voltage in volts (V)Vb = the brush drop in volts (V)Ra = the armature resistance in ohms (Ω)Ia = (Vt – Vb – Vcemf) / RaVcemf = the induced counter emf in the armature windings in volts (V).

36 15-6 Dynamic Braking of DC Motors In dynamic braking the armature is connected to a resistive load after removing power, the energy stored in the rotor in the form of angular momentum will be transferred to the resistive load, rapidly decreasing the rotor speed.When plugging a motor, the motor is momentarily reconnected in such a way as to reverse the direction of rotation. This can cause excessive line currents and excessive torque on the rotor.
