Electromagnetic Induction

• emf is induced in a conductor placed in a magnetic field whenever there is a change in magnetic field.

Moving Conductor in a Magnetic Field

• Consider a straight conductor moving with a uniform velocity, v, in a stationary magnetic field.

• The free charges in the conductor experience a force which will push them to one end of the conductor.

• An electric field is built up due to the electron accumulation.

• An e.m.f. is generated across the conductor such that

E = Blv.

Induced Current in Wire Loop

• An induced current passes around the circuit when the rod is moved along the rail.

• The induced current in the rod causes a force F = IlB, which opposes the motion.

• Work done by the applied force to keep the rod moving is

• Electrical energy is produced from the work done such that

E = E It = W

E= Blv

Lenz’s Law

• The direction of the induced current is always so as to oppose the change which causes the current.

Magnetic Flux

• The magnetic flux is a measure of the number of magnetic field lines linking a surface of cross-sectional area A.

• The magnetic flux through a small surface is the product of the magnetic flux density normal to the surface and the area of the surface.

Unit : weber (Wb)

• The induced e.m.f. in a circuit is equal to the rate of change of magnetic flux linkage through the circuit.

Induced Currents Caused by Changes in Magnetic Flux

• The magnetic flux (number of field lines passing through the coil) changes as the magnet moves towards or away from the coil.

Eddy Current

• An eddy current is a swirling current set up in a conductor in response to a changing magnetic field.

• Damping of a vibrating system

Back emf in Motors

• When an electric motor is running, its armature windings are cutting through the magnetic field of the stator. Thus the motor is acting also as a generator.

• According to Lenz's Law, the induced voltage in the armature will oppose the applied voltage in the stator.

• This induced voltage is called back emf.

Variation of current as a motor is started

• As the coil rotates, the angular speed as well as the back emf increases and the current decreases until the motor reaches a steady state.

The need for a starting resistance in a motor

• When the motor is first switched on,  =0.

• The initial current, Io=V/R, very large if R is small.

• When the motor is running, the back emf increases, so the current decrease to its working value.

• To prevent the armature burning out under a high starting current, it is placed in series with a rheostat, whose resistance is decreases as the motor gathers speed.

Variation of current with the steady angular speed of the coil in a motor

• The maximum speed of the motor occurs when the current in the motor is zero.

Variation of output power with the steady angular speed of the coil in a motor

• The output power is maximum when the back emf is ½ V.

Transformer

• A transformer is a device for stepping up or down an alternating voltage.

• For an ideal transformer,

• (i.e. zero resistance and no flux leakage)

Transformer Energy Losses

• Heat Losses

• Copper losses- Heating effect occurs in the copper coils by the current in them.

• Eddy current losses- Induced eddy currents flow in the soft iron core due to the flux changes in the metal.

• Magnetic Losses

• Hysteresis losses- The core dissipates energy on repeated magnetization.

• Flux leakage- Some magnetic flux does not pass through the iron core.

Designing a transformer to reduce power losses

• Thick copper wire of low resistance is used to reduce the heating effect (I2R).

• The iron core is laminated, the high resistance between the laminations reduces the eddy currents as well as the heat produced.

• The core is made of very soft iron, which is very easily magnetized and demagnetized.

• The core is designed for maximum linkage, common method is to wind the secondary coil on the top of the primary coil and the iron core must always form a closed loop of iron.

Transmission of Electrical Energy

• Wires must have a low resistance to reduce power loss.

• Electrical power must be transmitted at low currents to reduce power loss.

• To carry the same power at low current we must use a high voltage.

• To step up to a high voltage at the beginning of a transmission line and to step down to a low voltage again at the end we need transformers.

Direct Current Transmission

• a.c. produces alternating magnetic field which induces current in nearby wires and so reduce transmitted power; this is absent in d.c.

• It is possible to transmit d.c. at a higher average voltage than a.c. since for d.c., the rms value equals the peak; and breakdown of insulation or of air is determined by the peak voltage.

• Changing voltage with d.c. is more difficult and expensive.

Self Induction

• When a changing current passes through a coil or solenoid, a changing magnetic flux is produced inside the coil, and this in turn induces an emf.

• This emf opposes the change in flux and is called self-induced emf.

• The self-induced emf will be against the current if it is increasing.

• This phenomenon is called self-induction.

Definitions of Self-inductance (1)

• Definition used to find L

The magnetic flux linkage in a coil  the current flowing through the coil.

Where L is the constant of proportionality for the coil.

L is numerically equal to the flux linkage of a circuit when unit current flows through it.

Unit : Wb A-1 or H (henry)

Definitions of Self-inductance (2)

• Definition that describes the behaviour of an inductor in a circuit

Lis numerically equal to the emf induced in the circuit

when the current changes at the rate of 1 A in each second.

Inductors

• Coils designed to produce large self-induced emfs are called inductors (or chokes).

• In d.c. circuit, they are used to slow the growth of current.

Inductance of a Solenoid

Energy Stored in an Inductor

• The work done against the back emf in bringing the current from zero to a steady value Io is

Current growth in an RL circuit

• At t = 0, the current is zero.

• So

• As the current grows, the p.d. across the resistor increases. So the self-induced emf ( - IR) falls; hence the rate of growth of current falls.

• As t

Decay of Current through an Inductor

• Time constant for RL circuit

• The time constant is the time for current to decrease to 1/e of its original value.

• The time constant is a measure of how quickly the current grows or decays.

emf across contacts at break

• To prevent sparking at the contacts of a switch in an inductive circuit, a capacitor is often connected across the switch.

The energy originally stored

in the magnetic field of the coil

is now stored in the electric

field of the capacitor.

Switch Design

• An example of using a protection diode with a relay coil.

• A blocking diode parallel to the inductive coil is used to reduce the high back emf present across the contacts when the switch opens.

Non-Inductive Coil

• To minimize the self-inductance, the coils of resistance boxes are wound so as to set up extremely small magnetic fields.

• The wire is double-back on itself. Each part of the coil is then travelled by the same current in opposite directions and so the resultant magnetic field is negligible.
