13.7 How can electricity be used to make things move?

Using skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works:

• to explain how the motor effect is used in simple devices.

Skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works set in the context of:

• When a conductor carrying an electric current is placed in a magnetic field, it may experience a force.

• The size of the force can be increased by:

– increasing the strength of the magnetic field

– increasing the size of the current.

• The conductor will not experience a force if it is parallel to the magnetic field.

• The direction of the force is reversed if either the direction of the current or the direction of the magnetic field is reversed.

ELECTRICAL GENERATORS

13.8 How do generators work?

Using skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works:

• to explain from a diagram how an a.c. generator works, including the purpose of the slip rings and brushes.

Skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works set in the context of:

• If an electrical conductor .cuts. through magnetic field lines, an electrical potential difference is induced across the ends of the conductor.

• If a magnet is moved into a coil of wire, an electrical potential difference is induced across the ends of the coil.

• If the wire is part of a complete circuit, a current is induced in the wire.

• If the direction of motion, or the polarity of the magnet, is reversed, the direction of the induced potential difference and the induced current is reversed.

• The generator effect also occurs if the magnetic field is stationary and the coil is moved.

• The size of the induced potential difference increases when:

– the speed of the movement increases

– the strength of the magnetic field increases

– the number of turns on the coil increases

– the area of the coil is greater.

TRANSFORMERS

13.9 How do transformers work?

Using skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works:

• to determine which type of transformer should be used for a particular application.

Skills, knowledge and understanding of how science works set in the context of:

• The basic structure of the transformer.

• An alternating current in the primary coil produces a changing magnetic field in the iron core and hence in the secondary coil. This induces an alternating potential difference across the ends of the

secondary coil.

• The potential difference (p.d.) across the primary and secondary coils of a transformer are related by the equation:

p.d. across primary / p.d. across secondary = number of turns on primary / number of turns on secondary

• In a step-up transformer the potential difference across the secondary coil is greater than the potential difference across the primary coil.

• In a step-down transformer the potential difference across the secondary coil is less than the potential difference across the primary coil.

• The uses of step-up and step-down transformers in the National Grid.

The motor effect

When a conductor carrying an electric current is placed in a magnetic field,

it may experience a force.

This is called the motor effect.

Motor effect - Fendt

– the current is increased

The direction of the force is reversed if either the direction of the current or the direction of the magnetic field is reversed.

The conductor will not experience a force if it is parallel to the magnetic field.

The generator effect by the amplifier.

If an electrical conductor cuts. through magnetic field lines, an electrical potential difference is induced across the ends of the conductor.

If the wire is part of a complete circuit, a current is induced in the wire.

This is also called electromagnetic induction.

Generator - Fendt

If a magnet is moved into a coil of wire, an electrical potential difference is induced across the ends of the coil.

If the direction of motion, or the polarity of the magnet, is reversed, then the direction of the induced potential difference and the induced current are also reversed.

The generator effect also occurs if the magnetic field is stationary and the coil is moved.

Generator - Fendt

The size of the induced potential difference increases when: potential difference is induced across the ends of the coil.

– the speed of the movement increases

– the strength of the magnetic field increases

– the number of turns on the coil increases

– the area of the coil is greater.

Generator - Fendt

Alternating Current Generators potential difference is induced across the ends of the coil.

Most electricity is produced using the ‘generator effect’.

The simplest generators and the types used in power stations produce alternating current (A.C.)

This like an electric motor in reverse. potential difference is induced across the ends of the coil.

As the coil is rotated electromagnetic induction occurs.

An alternating voltage is induced in the coil.

An alternating current is drawn off through two slip rings.

The faster the coil is rotated:

- the greater is the amplitude of the voltage and current

- the higher is the frequency of the a.c.

Generator - Fendt

When the wheel turns the magnet is made to rotate next to the fixed coil of wire.

Electromagnetic induction occurs and a alternating potential difference is induced in the coil.

This causes an alternating current to flow to the light bulb of the bicycle.

The transformer

A transformer is a device that is used to change one alternating voltage level to another.

Transformer - eChalk

A transformer consists of at least two coils of wire wrapped around a laminated iron core.

PRIMARY COIL of Np turns

SECONDARY COIL of Ns turns

PRIMARY VOLTAGE Vp

SECONDARY VOLTAGE Vs

laminated iron core

Structure of a transformer

Transformer - eChalk

How a transformer works around a laminated iron core.

When an alternating voltage, Vp is applied to the primary coil of Np turns it causes an alternating to flow in this coil.

This current causes a changing magnetic field in the laminated iron core which cuts across the secondary coil of Ns turns.

Electromagnetic induction occurs in this coil which produces an alternating voltage, Vs.

Transformer - eChalk

Why can a transformer not change the level of the voltage output of a battery?

A battery produces a steady (DC) voltage.

This voltage would cause a constant direct current in the primary coil of a transformer.

This current would produce an unchanging magnetic field in the iron core.

This unchanging magnetic field would NOT cause electromagnetic induction in the secondary coil.

There would therefore be no secondary voltage.

Question

Transformer - eChalk

In text questions: output of a battery?

The magnetic field in the core would be much weaker because the core is not a magnetic material.

The lamp would be brighter.

The lamp would not light up with direct current in the primary coil.

Iron is easier to magnetise and demagnetise as the alternating current increases and decreases each half cycle.

Summary questions:

1. Current, primary, magnetic field, secondary, p.d., secondary.

2. (a) Direct current in the primary coil would not produce an alternating magnetic field, so no p.d. would be induced in the secondary coil.

(b) The current would short-circuit across the wires instead of passing through them. This would cause the coil to overheat if it did not cause the fuse to blow.

(c) Iron is a magnetic material, so it makes the magnetic field much stronger. It is easily magnetised and demagnetised when the current alternates.

The transformer equation output of a battery?

The voltages or potential differences across the primary and secondary coils of a transformer are related by the equation:

primary voltage = primary turns

secondary voltagesecondary turns

Vp= Np

Vs Ns

Transformer - eChalk

Step-up transformers output of a battery?

In a step-up transformer the potential difference across the secondary coil is greater than the potential difference across the primary coil.

The secondary turns must be greater than the primary turns.

Use: To increase the voltage output from a power station from 25 kV (25 000 V) to up to 400 kV.

Transformer - eChalk

Step-down transformers output of a battery?

In a step-down transformer the potential difference across the secondary coil is smaller than the potential difference across the primary coil.

The secondary turns must be smaller than the primary turns.

Use: To decrease the voltage output from the mains supply from 230V to 18V to power and recharge a lap-top computer.

Transformer - eChalk

Calculate the secondary voltage of a transformer that has a primary coil of 1200 turns and a secondary of 150 turns if the primary is supplied with 230V.

primary voltage = primary turns

secondary voltage secondary turns

230 / Vs = 1200 / 150

230 / Vs = 8

230 = 8 x Vs

230 / 8 = Vs

Secondary voltage = 28.8 V

Question 1

Transformer - eChalk

Calculate the number of turns required for the primary coil of a transformer if secondary has 400 turns and the primary voltage is stepped up from 12V to a secondary voltage of 48V.

primary voltage = primary turns

secondary voltage secondary turns

12 / 48 = Np / 400

0.25 = Np / 400

0.25 x 400 = Np

Transformers and the National Grid of a transformer if secondary has 400 turns and the primary voltage is stepped up from 12V to a secondary voltage of 48V.

The National Grid is the system of cables used to deliver electrical power from power stations to consumers.

The higher the voltage used, the greater is the efficiency of energy transmission.

Lower voltages result in higher electric currents and greater energy loss to heat due to the resistance of the cables.

At power stations the output voltage of the generators is stepped up by transformers from 25kV to 132kV.

The voltage may be further increased to up to 400 kV for transmission over long distance pylon lines.

The voltage is reduced in stages by step-down transformers to different levels for different types of consumer.

The lowest level is 230V for domestic use. The final step-down transformer will be at sub station within a few hundred metres of each group of houses.

Why is electrical energy transmitted over the National Grid in the form of alternating current?

To maximise efficiency high voltages must be used.

Voltage therefore needs to be changed in level.

Transformers are needed to change voltage levels.

Transformers only work with alternating current.

Choose appropriate words to fill in the gaps below:

(b) People are at risk due to other causes. There is an extra risk to those exposed to these magnetic fields.

(c) A hypothesis is put forward as an ‘unproven’ theory to be tested by scientific experiments. If lots of experiments are carried out and they all support the hypothesis, it gains scientific credibility and is accepted as a theory. But at any stage, it could be overthrown by any conflicting scientific evidence.

The voltmeter was not sensitive enough. It would also not give a read-out of the voltage, so it would be impossible to get an accurate result even if it was sensitive enough.
