How does one convert an AC motor into a generator?

already exists.

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:
(1st link)
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
(2nd link)
I tested both links and it works perfectly.
Thanks for the feedback!

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

What is ac generator and motor theory?

In an electrical engineering textbook you would probably find  1-2 chapters on ac motors and another on ac generators. The theory  explains how these devices work exactly, a

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?

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

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 or  alternator which is turned by the engine. Six diodes in a full-wave  rectifier connect the alternator directly to

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 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 the  output of an ac generator to produce dc, that's what happens in  alternators for cars.    A car alt
