Explain the construction and working of an electric generator (DC) with the help of a neat diagram

Electric generator


An electric device which converts mechanical energy into electric energy is called an electric generator.

Principle:  Electric generator works on the principle of electromagnetic induction. When the coil of electric generator rotates in a magnetic field, the magnetic field induces a current in this coil. This induced current then flows into the circuit connected to the coil.

Types of electric generators:
1.       AC Generator
2.       DC Generator

DC Generator:

A generator which converts mechanical energy into electrical energy in the form of direct current is called as DC generator.



Construction:



The main components of D.C. generator are:
1.       Armature coil 2. Strong magnets 3. Split rings or commutator 4. Brushes 5. Bulb.

The components such as armature coil, strong magnet, brushes are the same which are used for AC generators. Slip rings or commutator is the same as used in electric motor.

Working of DC generator:

(a)     When the coil of DC generator rotates in the magnetic field, potential difference is produced in the coil. This gives rise to the flow of current. This is shown by glowing of the bulb.
(b)     In D.C. generator, the flow of current in the circuit is in the same direction as long as the coil rotates in the magnetic field.

(c)     This is because one brush is always in contact with the arm of the armature moving up and other brush is in contact with the arm of the armature moving downward in the magnetic field.
