Electromagnetic Induction
Faraday: “ convert magnetism into electricity”

What we know… Current in a wire generates magnetic field
Field of a solenoid is similar to that of a bar magnet Strength of magnetic field depends on permeability ( magnetic properties of magnet) Interaction between magnetic field and electric field results in a magnetic force ( as in electric motor) Can a magnetic field induce a current in a wire?

Electromagnetic induction
Electromagnetic induction is the process of generating current by: - moving a wire through a magnetic field, or -moving a magnetic field across a wire ( conductor) [ relative motion between the magnetic field and a wire]

Closed loop of wire ( attached to galvanometer) is placed in a magnetic field Current is generated in wire if: Wire moves relative to the magnetic field Wire moves perpendicular to magnetic field ( maximum current generated) No current generated in wire if: Wire is stationary ( not moving) Wire moves parallel to magnetic field

Direction of the current
When the direction of magnetic field changes, the direction of the current changes How can you tell the direction of the current?

4th Right Hand Rule Palm- direction of current (Force on the charge) Fingers- magnetic field (B) Thumb – direction the wire moves ( velocity) To determine the force on a charge or direction of conventional current

Use the 4th Right Hand Rule to find the direction of the induced current in this wire

0 voltage - Parallel to magnetic field
If the wire moves to the right, in which direction does the induced current move? In what direction should the wire be moved, relative to the magnetic field to generate the minimum voltage? 0 voltage - Parallel to magnetic field

Electromotive Force (EMF)
Measured in Volts (V) Makes current flow from lower to higher potential Wire moves through a magnetic field Force is exerted on a charge in the wire Charge moves in the direction of the force = work is done Electrical Potential energy increases Difference in potential is called induced EMF EMF is the Potential Difference across a wire moving in a magnetic field ( or voltage given to a charge by a battery)

EMF depends on: -velocity of the wire, [v] - the length of the wire [L] - the magnetic field, [B] EMF = BLv( sin θ) [ sin θ – if wire in not perpendicular to magnetic field find the perpendicular component of the velocity] The Current induced in the wire depends on: - v, L B and resistance in the wire V= Voltage v= velocity

= Volts Units of EMF = EMF = BLv units Q= It C= As = W=Fxd J=Nm
Potential energy is work done per unit charge = J/C = Volts

Application of induced EMF
e.g. Microphone

Application of induced EMF
a diaphragm in a microphone is attached to a coil of wire that is free to move in a magnetic field. 1. Sound waves vibrate the diaphragm 2. This moves the coil in the magnetic field. 3. The motion of the coil induces an EMF across the ends of the coil. Voltage can be increased by electronic devices How is an EMF produced in a microphone

Sound wave converted to electrical signal
The induced EMF varies as the frequency of the sound varies. This converts sound energy to electrical signal

Magnetic flux Magnetic flux is the number of magnetic field lines passing through a surface placed in a magnetic field.

Magnetic flux and Faraday’s law of Induction
An external magnetic field passes through a region at an angle θ to the region Perpendicular component of magnetic field = Bcosθ Magnetic field θ area Magnetic flux Φ is the product of the perpendicular component of the magnetic field and cross sectional area A

Magnetic flux and Faraday’s law of Induction
Φ = BA cos θ Φ = magnetic flux Weber (Wb) B = magnetic field strength Tesla (T) A = cross sectional area (m2) 1 Wb = 1 T.m2 Magnetic flux Φ is the product of the perpendicular component of the magnetic field and cross sectional area A

Magnetic field lines Magnetic field lines parallel to surface
Perpendicular to surface Perpendicular to surface Magnetic field lines parallel to surface Flux is 0 Magnetic field lines perpendicular to Surface Flux is maximum Φ = BA cos 90 = 0 Φ = BA cos 0 = BA

The circular loop in the figure has a radius of 4 cm and makes an angle of 230 with a 2-T magnetic field. What is the flux through the loop? Φ = BA cos θ A = πr2 = π (4/100)2 = 5 x 10-3 m2 = 2 x (5 x 10-3) cos 23 = 9 x 10-3Wb

A square with sides of length 2 m is perpendicular to a magnetic field of strength 10 T. If the square is rotated by 60º, what is the change in magnetic flux through the square? =BA cos θ  = BA cosθ = 10 x 2 x 2 x cos x 2 x 2 x cos 600 = = 20 Wb

Magnetic field strength
Magnetic flux density = magnetic flux per cross sectional area = Wb/m2 Φ = BA Φ/A = B ( magnetic field strength) = magnetic flux density

Induced motional EMF is due to the rate of change of the magnetic flux If a coil has a number of turns use the equation:

problem A coil is made of 10 turns of wire and has a diameter of 5cm. The coil is passing through the field in such a way that the axis of the coil is parallel to the field. The strength of the field is 0.5T. a. What is the change in the magnetic flux? B. If an average EMF of 2V is observed, for how long was the flux changing? -9.8 x 10-4 4.9 x 10-3s

recap: 1. What is the induced EMF in a wire that is 20 cm long, moving at an angle of 300 to a 0.08 T magnetic field with a velocity of 5 m/s 2. A flat 300 turn coil has a resistance of 3Ώ. The coil covers an area of 15cm2. At what rate must the magnetic field change in order to induce a current of 0.75 A in the coil? ( find the rate of change of magnetic field) EMF = I x R Φ = BA cos θ EMF = BLv( sin θ)

Electrical generators
Pg 675 PPP

Electrical generators
Invented by MICHAEL FARADAY Electrical generators change mechanical energy to electrical energy Made up of: Wire loop placed in How an electric generator works The armature rotates in the magnetic field When the wire is perpendicular to magnetic field, it cuts the magnetic field- EMF induced Magnetic field

To determine the direction of the induced current – use 4th right hand rule
To increase the strength of the magnetic field: 1. Wire is wound around an iron core – called an armature To increase the induced EMF: - Increase the length of the coil by increasing the number of turns How does the strength and direction of the current change?

When is maximum current produced?
Wire is perpendicular to magnetic field Wire is parallel to magnetic field When coil is horizontal ( 900 to magnetic field) Maximum EMF induced When coil is vertical (00 to magnetic field) Minimum (0) EMF induced When is maximum current produced?

Is current induced in all sides of the loop?
Using the 4th right hand rule We see that the current will move to the side of the wire- no EMF induced. EMF is not induced in this side of the coil (AB or CD) A B D C if the coil moves clockwise ( as shown), current moves anticlockwise ( use right hand rule) Magnetic field reverses direction every ½ turn- produce alternating current EMF induced = BLv(sinθ) L= AD or BC Is current induced in all sides of the loop?

Voltage-time graph for ac current
Equation for this graph: V= Vmax cos 2πft f = frequency of alternation

How can we increase the frequency of a generator?
Increase the number of magnetic pole pairs

Motors and Generators Converts electrical energy to mechanical energy
Voltage is placed across an armature in a magnetic field Voltage cause current to flow in the coil- armature turns Converts mechanical energy to electrical energy Mechanical energy turns armature in a magnetic field. Induced voltage cause current to flow

Electric generator As the armature turns, the wire loops cut through the magnetic field lines and induce an EMF. Made up of a number of wire loops placed in a strong magnetic field to increase the strength of the magnetic field, wire is wound around an iron core (armature) which rotates freely EMF depends on the length of wire. Increasing the number of loops in the armature increases the wire length, magnetic field induces an EMF. the induced EMF produces an electric current

Electric generators

Explain the construction and working of an AC generator
Principle When a straight conductor is moved in a magnetic field, then a current is induced in the conductor. It is based on electromagnetic induction.

Explain the construction and working of an AC generator
Made up of Permanent magnets armature made up of a number of turns of wire on a soft iron core brush & slip-rings: allows the armature to turn freely and allows the current to pass into the external circuit An energy source turns the armature at a fixed frequency. E.g. 60Hz in US, 50Hz - UAE

Alternating current AC generators
The Current changes direction in the external circuit As the armature turns, the alternating current varies between a maximum value and zero How is the AC generator different from a motor?

As the armature turns the velocity vector perpendicular to the magnetic field changes. The flux changes continuously with time This change in magnetic flux induces an emf The direction of the induced emf is reversed after every half rotation of the coil. Thus in one rotation of the coil, the current changes its direction twice in the coil

Average power power varies because both current and voltage vary.
The power produced by a generator is the product of the current and the voltage. P = I x V power varies because both current and voltage vary. Power is always positive because I and V are either both positive or both negative.

DC generators Split ring commutators : Act as full-wave rectifiers
change the alternating current in the coil to DC in the external circuit

AC generator DC generator Similarities: Both change mechanical energy to electric energy both have commutators with brushes, magnetic field with armature Differences: 2 Slip rings which causes AC current in the external circuit Has split rings which changes AC current in the internal circuit to DC in external circuit- act as full wave rectifier. ( Diodes also act as rectifiers)

Average power PAC, is half the maximum power

Effective current P = I2R PAC = I2eff R But PAC = ½ PACmax
If we express AC POWER in terms of effective current, then PAC = I2eff R But PAC = ½ PACmax I2eff R = ½ I2max R Ieff = Imax

Effective Voltage Effective voltage, known as RMS (root mean square) voltage. ( In US – 120V, in UAE- 220V).

Why is effective current ( voltage) less than the maximum value?
In AC generators, power varies from a maximum to zero value. The effective current ( voltage) is a constant value of current that would cause the average power to be dissipated

formulae Ieff = Imax Veff = Vmax
