A simple AC generator works via a magnetic field. There is voltage induction into a coil of wire within the magnetic field, and as the voltage increases, the magnetic field increases.
An ac generator works when the voltages appearing at the two wires alternates between positive and negative and then negative and positive each time when the magnet makes a complete revolution. An AC generator is a simple generator.
Alternator and ac generator is equal
The main difference is that a simple AC generator is one meant for personal or household use that plugs into a wall's AC outlet. It is much less powerful than a power station generator, which usually must be wired into a main electrical supply. +++++ Errr, why would you plug a generator into a household mains socket? I'm glad I am not your home insurer!
what is the construction of ac generator
An ac generator produces ac, a dc generator produces dc, it all depends on the generator.
It isn't. A DC generator is better if you want DC, but an AC generator is better if you want AC.
The AC generator is basically the same as an DC generator except that the ac generator has slip-rings but now thery are starting to replace them with the split-ring commutator.
NO, generator always generating AC current,when commutator is used,at that time AC is converted in DC.and due to this generator is called dc generator.
It may not be possible to physically convert AC generator to DC generator. What can be done is that 'Rectifier' of suitable capacity can be connected to the out put of AC generator to get DC supply.
You step down voltage from an AC generator with a transformer.You step down frequency from an AC generator with a motor/generator set, or with an inverter. This is not a common thing to do.
an induction generator
It can be, however AC power is generally produced directly by an AC alternator/generator.
please how can i diagnose faults on an AC generator power circuits?
With a generator...
Type your answer here... how can you change an ac motor to a dc generator
If the DC welder is designed to plug into an AC power source, then it can run off of an AC generator.
There are several differences in AC and DC generators. In an AC generator, the current can flow in both directions. In a DC generator, the current can only flow in one direction.
since the physical construction of a DC motor and DC generator is the same,it can work either way.in other words,yes a DC motor can work as a DC generator(if you drive it by a primemover it will produce electricity).however its not possible with all AC motors.
They are very similar devices. They both involve a rotating shaft and coils of wire used as electromagnets. However, only certain types of simple DC motors, can be used as generators with no modiication. AC generators need careful control of the feild coils, via special circuits. Putting AC back into an AC generator will not make it work as a motor. The small DC motors found in toys, can be used directly as a small DC generator. You will find this in practice, in hand generator flashlights. The generator used for charging the battery, is no more than a model motor.
