Construction of Alternator

The AC generator (alternator) or synchronous generator is a machine which converts the mechanical power or energy into electrical power.
The construction of an alternator is very similar to the DC generator but the main difference between them in DC generator the armature winding is the rotating part and field winding is the stationary part whereas in an alternator the armature winding is stationary and field winding is the rotary part.

Working Principle Of An Alternator

Working Principle Of An Alternator The fundamental working principle of an alternator is the same as the DC generator i.e as DC generator an alternator or synchronous generator work on the principle of Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction.  Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction states that when a current-carrying conductor is placed in the magnetic field …
