The power generator is a unit designed to be ready to operate and generate electricity when needed, requiring only the addition of coolant, fuel and acid batteries.
Principle of Generator Operation
The operation of the generator is based on the rotation of the coils within the magnetic field of the magnets. Mechanical energy is initially converted to kinetics into the coil and then to electrical. Almost all generators used to generate electricity produce alternating current.
Initially the coil is stable and the generated electric current is zero. As the coil rotates the value of the generated electric current changes: Increases gradually, reaches a maximum positive value, then starts to decrease, zeroes (when the coil has cleared 180 ° degrees of rotation), then reaches a maximum negative value returns to zero and this “cycle” is repeated. This rotation takes place a few times per second. If we have 3 reinforcements (ie 3 coils) connected to a 120 degree angle, then the generated electricity has 3 phases, the known three-phase alternating current.
Theoretically, we can produce electricity with more phases, but the three phase is what is usually produced in modern factories.
The operation of the generator is based on the phenomenon of induction.
The power generator is designed as a complete package to deliver superior performance and reliability. Each pair differs slightly from the rest due to the size and configuration of its main components.
