# How does one convert an AC motor into a generator?

Would you like to merge this question into it?

#### already exists as an alternate of this question.

Would you like to make it the primary and merge this question into it?

#### exists and is an alternate of .

I found a web site that explains how to do it:
It seems to make sense, but I have not tried it yet.
That is for single phase induction motor
here is for three phase motor
I tested both links and it works perfectly.

# How can you convert a DC generator into an ac generator?

Converting D/C into A/C is very expensive. You can use inverters to switch the direction of the current but you would probably be better off to replace your DC generator with

# How do you convert a stepper motor into a generator?

# What is ac generator and motor theory?

In an electrical engineering textbook you would probably find1-2 chapters on ac motors and another on ac generators. The theoryexplains how these devices work exactly, and giv

# How a DC motor is converted into generator?

In construction wise both dc motor& dc generator is same.if the mechanical energy is applied as input to the dc motor means,it will run as a GENERATOR.

# How do you convert ac generator to dc generator?

Such conversions are often inefficient and/or expensive. It requires an external power supply or battery charger to convert AC into DC.

# Can a Ac electric motor be converted into a generator?

Yes. An AC generator and an AC motor are functionally very similar. I would not recommend using a permanent magnet type, since you cannot easily control the output. You want a

# How can convert DC generator to ac generator?

\nyou can simply convert dc to ac by rectification method. This is done by assembling electronics components; such as; diodes(4), transistor n resistors.

# Can you convert a DC motor to run on AC?

The easiest way would be to convert the AC power to DC by using a rectifier diode and a filter capacitor. In that way you can now run your DC motor on DC.

# How do you convert ac motor to dc motor?

the quick answer is you cant. squirrel cage induction motors need AC power to generate the magnetic field in the rotor...if however you have a motor that has brushes in it (dr

# How do you convert a DC motor to a generator?

all the electrical machines can be run either as a motor or as a generator. but dc machines, A motor can be run as generator and vice versa with little modification

# Can an ac motor generate electricity?

An ac motor cannot generate electricity but its shaft can be coupled to that of certain devices like an alternator to in order to generate electricity.

# How do you convert a ac generator to dc generator?

The method used in cars is to have a 3-phase generator oralternator which is turned by the engine. Six diodes in a full-waverectifier connect the alternator directly to the ca

# Can an alternator be converted into an ac motor?

It should be able to but I cannot say how efficient it would be. One would likely need to remove the electronics and have direct connections for the field windings and the rot

# How can an ac generator be converted to DC generator?

At the output install a full wave bridge and filter the output to get a desired amount of ripple. Then add circuitry to create the desired DC voltage. Or just buy a AC to DC c

yes, some can.

# How you can convert motor into generator?

Turn the shaft A permanent magnet motor can generate a voltage when you turn it's "drive" shaft. There is little to actually to distinguish a permanent magnet motor from that

# How can you convert ac generator in to dc generator?

The two are different machines, but you can connect diodes on theoutput of an ac generator to produce dc, that's what happens inalternators for cars. A car alternator is a 3-
