Generator - Principle Of Operation, Alternating Current (ac) Generators, Commercial Generators, Direct Current (dc) Generators

mechanical energy power

A generator is a machine by which mechanical energy is transformed into electrical energy. Generators can be sub-divided into two major categories depending on whether the electric current produced is alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC). The basic principle on which both types of generator works is the same, although the details of construction of the two may differ somewhat. Generators can also be classified according to the source of the mechanical power (or prime mover) by which they are driven, such as water or steam power.

while connecting the DG with 100A load for testing purpose.the Dg is not withstanding the starting up load due to which vector error is coming(Phase angle difference).The GD capacity is 625kva and it could withsatand 850A load.But its not withstand for 100A its self that is about only 10% of load.

Can you give me the solution how to over come this problum and if their any testings or alternatives please say me.

An electrical Generator is a machine which converts mechanical energy (or power) into electrical energy (or power).



Principle :



It is based on the principle of production of dynamically (or motionally) induced e.m.f (Electromotive Force). Whenever a conductor cuts magnetic flux, dynamically induced e.m.f. is produced in it according to Faraday's Laws of Electromagnetic Induction. This e.m.f. causes a current to flow if the conductor circuit is closed.



Hence, the basic essential parts of an electric generator are :



A magnetic field and



A conductor or conductors which can so move as to cut the flux.
