Chapter 4 Electrical Principles

Electrical Principles
Energy Unit of measurement is the Joule (J). Work Transferring energy. Raising a 1 lb object 10 feet does 10 foot-pounds of work & adds potential energy to the object. Moving the same object sideways does not do any work & does not add any potential energy to the object.

Electrical Principles
Electric and Magnetic Fields Field Region of space where energy is stored and through which a force acts. Energy stored in a field is called potential energy. Fields are undetectable by any of the 5 human senses. You can only observe the effects of a field. Example: Gravity

Electrical Principles
Electric and Magnetic Fields Electric Field Detected by a voltage difference between 2 points. Every electrical charge has an electric field. Electrical energy is stored by moving electrical charges apart so that there is a voltage difference (or potential) between them. Voltage potential = potential energy. An electrostatic field is an electric field that does not change over time.

Electrical Principles
Electric and Magnetic Fields Magnetic Field Detected by effect on moving electrical charges (current). An electrical current has an associated magnetic field. Magnetic energy is stored by moving electrical charges to create an electrical current. A magnetostatic field is a magnetic field that does not change over time. Stationary permanent magnet. Earth’s magnetic field.

Electrical Principles
RC and RL Time Constants Electrical energy storage. Capacitors store electrical energy in an electric field. Energy is stored by applying a voltage across the capacitor’s terminals. Strength of field (amount of energy stored) is determined by the voltage across the capacitor. Higher voltage  more energy stored. Capacitors oppose changes in voltage.

Electrical Principles
RC and RL Time Constants

Electrical Principles
RC and RL Time Constants Magnetic energy storage. Inductors store electrical energy in a magnetic field. Energy is stored by passing a current through the inductor. Strength of field (amount of energy stored) is determined by the amount of current through the inductor. More current  more energy stored. Inductors oppose changes in current. Generates a voltage (induced voltage) to oppose the voltage causing the change in current.

Electrical Principles
RL and RC Time Constants Time Constant. When a DC voltage is first applied to a capacitor, the current through the capacitor will initially be high but will fall to zero. When a DC current is first applied to an inductor, the voltage across the inductor will initially be high but will fall to zero. “Time constant” is a measure of how fast this transition occurs.

Electrical Principles
RL and RC Time Constants Time Constant. In an R-C circuit, one time constant is defined as the length of time it takes the voltage across an uncharged capacitor to reach 63.2% of its final value. In an R-C circuit, the time constant (TC) is calculated by multiplying the resistance (R) in Ohms by the capacitance (C) in Farads. TC = R x C

Electrical Principles
RL and RC Time Constants Time Constant. In an R-L circuit, one time constant is defined as the length of time it takes the current through an inductor to reach 63.2% of its final value. In an R-L circuit, the time constant (TC) is calculated by multiplying the resistance (R) in Ohms by the inductance (L) in Henrys. TC = R x L

Magnetic Cores Adding a core of magnetic material concentrates magnetic field in the core. Higher inductance. More efficient. Permeability (µ) Measurement of amount of concentration. µ = HC / HA (H = magnetic field strength) Permeability of air = 1.

Electrical Principles
Magnetic Cores Core Materials Air Lowest inductance. Iron Low frequency (power supplies, AF). Higher losses.

Electrical Principles
Magnetic Cores Core Materials Powdered Iron. Fine iron powder mixed with non-magnetic binding material. Lower losses. Better temperature stability. Ferrite Nickel-zinc or magnesium-zinc added to powdered iron. Higher permeability.

Electrical Principles
Magnetic Cores Core Materials Choice of proper core material allows inductor to perform well over the desired frequency range. AF to UHF.

Electrical Principles
Magnetic Cores Core shapes. Solenoid Coil. Inductance determined by: Number of turns. Diameter of turns. Distance between turns (turn spacing). Permeability (µ) of core material. Book says solenoidal coil fairly uncommon in electronics – WRONG! Very common in low inductance, high-power applications such as RF amplifier tank circuits.

Electrical Principles
Magnetic Cores Core shapes. Solenoid Coil. Magnetic field not confined within coil. Mutual Inductance & coupling. Book says solenoidal coil fairly uncommon in electronics – WRONG! Very common in low inductance, high-power applications such as RF amplifier tank circuits.

Electrical Principles
Magnetic Cores Toroidal Coil Magnetic field almost completely confined within coil. No stray coupling. <20 Hz to about 300 MHz with proper material choice.

Electrical Principles
Calculating Inductance Inductance Index (AL) Value provided by manufacturer of core. Accounts for permeability of core. Powdered Iron Cores L = AL x N2 / 10,000 L = Inductance in uH AL = Inductance Index in uH/(100 turns). N = Number of Turns

Electrical Principles
Calculating Inductance Powdered Iron Cores L = AL x N2 / 10,000 N = 100 x L / AL L = Inductance in uH AL = Inductance Index in uH/(100 turns). N = Number of Turns

Electrical Principles
Calculating Inductance Ferrite Cores L = AL x N2 / 1,000,000 N = 1000 x L / AL L = Inductance in mH AL = Inductance Index in mH/(1000 turns). N = Number of Turns
