Unit 14 Magnetic Induction

Objectives: Discuss magnetic induction. List factors that determine the amount and polarity of an induced voltage. Discuss Lenz’s law. Review the formula for R-L time constants.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Current flowing through a conductor produces a magnetic field around the conductor. Current flowing out Current flowing in

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction A voltage is induced when a conductor cuts magnetic lines of flux.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Reversing the direction of movement reverses the polarity of the voltage.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Reversing the polarity of the magnetic field reverses the polarity of the voltage.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Left-hand generator rule.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Voltage is induced by a moving magnetic field.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction A single-loop generator.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Increasing the number of turns increases the induced voltage.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Lenz’s Law An induced voltage or current opposes the motion that causes it. Please note: Inductors always oppose a change of current!

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Inductance is determined by the physical construction of the coil.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction R-L Time Constants T = L / R T = time in seconds L = inductance in henrys R = resistance in ohms This formula describes the time necessary for current in an inductor to reach its full Ohm’s law value.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Review: 1.When current flows, a magnetic field is created around the conductor. 2.When a conductor is cut by a magnetic field, a voltage is induced in the conductor. 3.The polarity of the induced voltage is determined by the polarity of the magnetic field.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Review: 4.Three factors that determine the amount of induced voltage are: a.the number of turns of wire. b.the strength of the magnetic field. c.the speed of the magnetic flux cutting action.

Unit 14 Magnetic Induction Review: 5.Induced voltage is always opposite in polarity to the applied voltage. 6.Inductors oppose a change of current. 7.Inductance is measured in units called henrys (H). 8.Iron core inductors are wound on cores of magnetic material.
