Basic elements of an A.C. generator


An A.C. generator consists of a rotor shaft on which a coil is mounted. A magnetic field is created around an armature coil with the help of permanent magnets.
The terminals of the coil are connected to two slip rings. Carbon brushes are attached to slip rings so as to make connection with an external circuit.
Underlying principle of an A.C. generator
The underlying principle responsible for the working of an ?.C. generator is electromagnetic induction. According to this principle, if a conductor is placed in a varying magnetic field, then current is induced in the conductor.
