Inventor: Michael Faraday

Michael faraday

Michael Faraday

  • Renowned physicist and chemist

  • Best known for the discovery of electromagnetic induction and the first two laws of electrolysis

    • 1st law: the amount of chemical change produced by a current is proportional to the quantity of electricity passed

    • 2nd law: the quantities of substances liberated or deposited of the electrode by the passage of a given quantity of electricity (current) are proportional to the chemical equivalent weights of those substances

Electric motor and dynamo

  • 1821: Built two devices to produce what he called electromagnetic rotation:

    • Continuous circular motion from the circular magnetic force around a wire

  • 1831: using induction ring he discovered the electromagnetic induction: the generation of electricity in a wire by means of the electromagnetic effect

    • This induction ring was the first electric transformer

Electric motor and dynamo

  • September 1831: discovered magneto-electric induction:

    • Attached two wires through a sliding contact to a copper disc, he rotated the disc between the poles of a horseshoe magnet and obtained a continuous direct current

    • This was the first generator

  • 1832: he proved that the electricity induced from a magnet, voltaic energy produced by a battery, and static electricity are all the same

  • He was also partly responsible for coining terms such as electrode, cathode and ion.

  • Gave his name to the farad, originally describing a unit of electrical charge but later a unit of electrical capacitance.

Basic functions of electric motor and dynamo


Electric motor

Electric Motor

  • Converts electrical energy into mechanical energy

  • Operates through magnetic fields and conductors to generate force

Electric motor1

Electric Motor

  • When an electric current is passed through a wire loop in a magnetic field, the loop will rotate and the rotating motion is transmitted to a shaft providing useful mechanical work.

Electric motor2

Electric Motor

  • Used for:

    • Pump impeller

    • Fan

    • Lifting materials



  • Produces electrical energy from mechanical energy

  • Another name is electrical generator



  • First electrical generators capable of delivering power for industry



  • Uses rotating coils of wire and magnetic fields to convert mechanical rotation into a pulsing direct electric current.
