  • 电机的分类
    • 按在应用中的职能来分:
      • 发电机(generator);电动机(motor);变压器(transformer);变流器(convertor);变频器(transducer)
    • 按电流种类分:
      • 直流(direct current)电机
      • 交流(alternatingcurrent)电机
    • 按速度分:
      • 直流电机;变压器;异步(asynchronous)电机;同步(synchronous)电机
  • 1. A moving charge in a magnetic field experiences a force.
    • A charge q moving with a speed v relative to a magnetic field B experiences a force F equal to F=qvBsinθ, where θ is the angle between the direction of the field and the direction of the charge’s velocity.
    • The force is in a direction that is perpendicular to both the velocity and the field as given by the ‘right-hand rule’.
For a positive charged particle moving (velocity v) in a magnetic field (field B) the direction of the resultant force (force F) can be found by: 1) Thumb of right hand in direction of Velocity, v (first vector); 2) Index Finger of r.h. in direction of field, B (second vector); 3) Your Palm (or middle finger if you like) now points in the direction of the Force, F (final vector)
2. A moving charge generates its own magnetic field.(右手螺旋定理)
    • In particular for our purposes here, an electric current produces a magnetic field. The field encircles the current, as given by another ‘right-hand rule’.
    • If the right thumb points in the direction of conventional current (moving positive charges), the fingers of the right hand curl around the wire in the direction of the magnetic field.

generators and motors1
Generators and Motors
  • Generators change mechanicalenergy into electrical energy. Motors change electrical energy into mechanical energy.
  • Generators and motors are a lot alike. They are made in the same general way. Further, they both depend on the same electromagneticprinciple for their operation.
The first principle is called GENERATOR ACTION. It is also called INDUCTION. Voltage can be induced into a wire that is in a magnetic field. This happens when the magnetic flux is cut by the wire. In some cases, the wire moves. In other cases, the field moves. In still others, both are moving, but at different speeds. It takes mechanical energy to cause the motion. This motion causes electricity to be generated.
The second principle is called MOTOR ACTION. This is simply the mechanical forces between magnets. When two magnets (or electromagnets) approach each other, one will be either pulled toward or pushed away from the other.
Some motors use one permanent magnet and one electromagnet. Others use two electromagnets. Either way, electrical energy creates at least one of the magnetic fields. Then, the forces between the two magnetic fields cause the motion.
  • Each type of motor and generator is build to do its own special job. All of them have two main parts. One part is called the stator. The stator is stationary; it does not move. The other part, the rotor, is mounted on bearings so it can rotate. The rotor shaft sticks out beyond the housing. For a generator, a prime mover is coupled to this shaft. For a motor, the rotor shaft is coupled to a mechanical load.
  • The input power to a generator is mechanical power. If the output is a direct current, the generator is called a DC GENERATOR. If the output is an alternating current, it is known as an ALTERNATOR.
  • Prime movers apply mechanical power to turn the rotor. Water wheels, windmills, steam and hydro-turbines, diesel and jet engines, and hand cranks are all examples of prime movers.
  • To make a rotor turn, the prime mover applies TORQUE. Torque simply means turning force. For example, when you tighten a nut on a bolt, you apply torque with a wrench.
  • The amount of torque applied to a shaft is proportional to two things:
    • 1. The amount of force applied.
    • 2. The distance the force is applied away from the center of the shaft.
  • The torque, or turning force, is directly proportional to both force and distance. The more force you apply, the greater the torque. Also, the longer the crank handle, the greater the torque. The equation is:

Torque (T) = force(F)×distance (d)

  • In conventional units ofmeasurement(计量单位), force is expressed in pounds. The abbreviation is lbf for POUNDS FORCE. One lbf is the amount of force that would be applied by the weight of one pound. Distance is measured in feet (ft.). Torque is expressed in pound forefeet (lbf-ft). Torque may also be expressed in ounce force-inches (ozf-in.).
  • The power input to a motor is electrical. Voltage is applied to a motor’s terminals(终端)resulting in a current. The power output of a motor is mechanical. This power is transmitted by the rotor shaft as a torque. This torque tends to rotate a load, such as a fan or pump.
  • To drive a load at a particular speed, you need a certain amount of torque. If the motor’s output is large enough, the load will turn. If the motor’s torque output is too small, however, it will not drive the load. Torque requirement is one of the most important things to consider in selecting a motor.
  • As a motor drives a load, mechanical power is drawnfrom(从…中取得)the motor. The motor, in turn, draws electrical power from the source at the same rate.

  • 翻译:
  • In addition to the utilities, enterprises such as factories, mines, and electric railways have several thousand power plants to generate electricity for their own needs. The total capacity for these plants in 1969 was estimated at 19 million kW. Many small, isolated plants are also installed in institutions, hotels, apartment houses, office buildings, amusement parks, etc. The capacities of these plants are not available, but they probably amount to only a few percent of the overall utility capacity.
  • The purpose of a substation is to transform the characteristic of the electrical energy supplied to some form suitable for use, as for example ,a conversion from alternating current to direct current for the use of city railway service ,or a change from one voltage to another ,or one frequency to another.
  • Their functions include:
Tap.—To beeconomical ,transmission of larger amounts of power over long distance must be done at voltages above 110,000 volts. Substation for supplying small amounts of power from such high-voltage linesare not satisfactory from the standpoint of operation and are also uneconomical .
  • It is ,therefore, common practice to install a few substation at advantageous points along the high-tension lines and step down the high-transmission voltage to a lower secondary-transmission voltage from which numerous small loads may be supplied.
Distribution.— Any substationthat is used to transform electrical energy to a potential that is low enough for general distribution and utilizationisa distributing substation .
  • Such a substation will generally receive its energy over a few comparatively high-tension lines and distribute it over a large number of low-voltage lines.
Industrial —When fairly large blocks of power are required by industrial plants, it often becomes necessary and advisable to install an individual substation to supply such a load directly from the main high-voltage line or secondary line of lower voltage .
  • Its simplest form would comprise only switching equipment, there being no voltage transformation.
  • In most cases a voltage transformation is probably needed; hence transformer equipment is included.
Sectionalizing.— In very long high-voltage large-capacity lines , particularly when several circuits are run in parallel , it is often necessary to split the lines into sections, in order that proper protection to the line and service can be obtained.
  • Such a substation is, therefore, helpful in sectionalizing damaged sections of a line, providing continuity of service.
  • Such a substation will generally comprise only switching equipment.
  • In long lines it may also serve to supply power-factor-correcting equipment.
Transmission-line Supply.— Itis becoming more and more common to install the high-tension equipment of a power plant outdoors, the installation becoming nothing more than a step-up substation receiving its power at generator voltage , then stepping up its voltage and finally sending it out over high-voltage transmission lines.
  • Such a substation is nothing more than an outdoor distributing substation turned around, the voltage being stepped up of stepped down.
Power-factor Correction.— The voltage at the end of long lines tends to increase as the load supplied is decreased, while on the other hand it tends to decrease as the load is increased.
  • Owing to the inductance and capacity effects, this variation in voltage is accompanied by a wide variation in power factor of a line, it is necessary to use synchronous condensers at the end of the line.
  • To supply such a machine the transmission-line voltage must be stepped down, hence a power-factor-correcting substation will include switching equipment, transformer, and all equipment necessary for the operation of synchronous condensers .
Frequency changer.—To interconnect two systems of different frequencies it is absolutely necessary that frequency changers be used.
  • Invariably a station of this type will necessitate transformers to step down or step up the voltage supplied to or delivered from the frequency changer, since the highest voltage that is normally feasible for rotating machinery has been found to be about 13,200 volts.
Direct current for Light and Power.— There are still a few sections in some of out large cities which are supplied with direct-current three-wire systems. Such a supply is invariably obtained from synchronous converters.
  • There are also certain types of motor loads in industrial plants which require direct current; these are (as a general rule) supplied from rotary converters.
  • For electrolytic work, low-voltage direct current is absolutely essential, hence motor generators or rotary converters are also applicable.
