Working of 3-Phase Alternator

Working of 3-Phase Alternator

Hello, friend Today we are discussing Working of 3-Phase Alternator. Working of 3-Phase Alternator is an interesting Topic So let start,

  • The rotor winding is stimulated from the dc. exciter and alternate N and S posts are created on the rotor.

  • At the point when the rotor is turned the anticlockwise way by a prime mover, the stator or armature conductors are cut by the attractive transition of rotor posts.

  • Therefore, e.m.f. is initiated in the armature conductors because of electromagnetic acceptance.

  • The actuated e.m.f. is substituting since N and S posts of rotor alternately pass the armature conductors.

  • The heading of instigated c.m.f. can be found by Fleming's correct hand guideline and recurrence is given by ;



N = speed of the rotor in r.p.m.

P = number of rotor poles

  • Fig. 22.4 (1) demonstrates star-adjusted armature winding and d.c. field winding.

  • At the point when the rotor is turned, a 3-stage voltage is prompted in the armature winding.

  • The size of Induced e.m.f. relies on the speed of the pivot and the d.c. energizing current.

  • The greatness of e.m.f. in each period of the armature winding is the equivalent.

  • Nonetheless, they vary in stage by 120° electrical as appeared in the phasor chart in Fig. 22.4 (ii).

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory

Limitations of Terzaghi Theory The value of the coefficient of consolidation has been assumed to be constant.  The distance d of the drainage path cannot be measured accurately in the field. The thickness of the deposit is generally variable, and an average value has to be estimated.  There is sometimes difficulty 1n locating the drainage face, sometimes thin previous seams that can act as good drainage face are missed in the boring operations. The equation is based on the assumption that the consolidation is one-dimensional. In the field, the consolidation is generally 3-dimensional. The lateral drainage may have a significant effect on the time rate of consolidation. The initial consolidation and secondary consolidation have been neglected. Sometimes these form an important part of the total consolidation. In actual practice, the pressure distribution may be far from linear or uniform. Read More Muller-Breslau principle

Price Guard Wire Method

Price Guard Wire Method Some form of  Price Guard Wire Method  is generally used to eliminate the errors caused by leakage currents over insulation. Fig. 3.14 illustrates the operation of This Method. In fig 3.14(a), a high resistance mounted on a piece of insulating material is measured by the ammeter voltmeter method. The micro-ammeter measures the sum of the current through the resistor (IR) and the current through the leakage path around the resistor. The measured value of resistance computed from the readings indicated on the voltmeter and the microammeter, will not be a true value but will be in error.   Figure 3.14 Application of  guard  circuit for measurement of high resistance In fig, 3.14 (b), the  guard  terminal has been added to the resistance terminal block. The  guard  terminal surrounds the resistance terminal entirely and is connected to the battery side of the micro-ammeter. The leakage current IL now bypasses t

Negative Booster

Negative booster A negative booster is employed to conform to the regulation that the potential difference between any two points of the rail return shall not exceed 7 V. Two boosters, positive and negative, are used which are mechanically coupled together and driven by a DC motor. The positive booster is connected to the trolley wire (near the generating station) and the negative booster (separately excited) is connected to the track rail.  The 'positive booster' adds voltage to the line while the 'negative booster lowers the potential of the point it is connected to. As we go along the trolley wire away from the generating station/sub-station, the potential drop increases, and the voltage of the trolley wire falls. Since the current returns via the track rail points away from the generating station acquire high potentials. This potential is brought down by the negative boost provided by the negative booster. When the load is sufficiently far away from the generating stati
