  • Direct and Alternating Current

    forms‚ alternating current and direct current. Direct current (dc) comes from generators that do not change in polarity‚ always producing a positive charge. In alternating current (ac) the polarity of the terminals is always changing from positive to negative. Thus you are left with alternating current flow. There are different ways of measuring and generating alternating and direct current. Direct current only flows in one direction in a circuit. Because the polarity of a direct current voltage

  • Alternating Current and Electricity

    non-technological factor to shape electricity was the business- and competition-fueled "War of Currents" of the late 19th century between alternating and direct current – AC and DC‚ respectively ("Electricity‚" 2006). During the initial years of electricity distribution‚ Thomas Edison ’s direct current was the standard for the United States‚ and Edison was not disposed to lose all his patent royalties. Direct current worked well for the incandescent lamps that were the principal load of the day. However

    for some of the modern conveniences of today‚ Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla. Edison perfected the incandescent light bulbs and devised a system of electrical current for homes and businesses. Tesla’s biggest innovation was introducing alternating current as the standard for modern electric power‚ breaking Edison’s monopoly on direct current power. Inventors Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla were opposite sides of the same coin. Edison‚ a brilliant business man with no formal education and Tesla‚

  • Alternating Current and Dynamically Induced Voltage

    INTRODUCTION Tachogenerator is an electromechanical device which generates an electrical output directly proportional to the speed of the rotating systems. Tachogenerators are basically transducers. This transducer converts the speed of rotation directly into electrical signal. The angular speed is converted into a directly dependent voltage signals. The voltage thus generated is fed to a speedometer for speed measurement and /or used as a feedback signal for controlling the speed of a rotating

  • Alternating Current RC and LRC Circuits

    Alternating Current RC and LRC Circuits Lab 7 November 12‚ 1012 109989- 5:30 PM Abstract Within this experiment we recorded that the theoretical capacitance of 0.470 is accurate with the capacitor from box C. The LRC circuit is proven to have a voltage accurate with the measured generator voltage because the largest percentage of error ‚ 0.55 % error‚ is much lower than 5% error. Summary The idea of the alternating current RC and LRC circuits lab is to record the value

  • Alternating Current and Ac Electricity

    After opening the first commercial power plant‚ Edison was only able to distribute electricity to one square mile of Manhattan and so it was found that using direct current (DC) was not an ideal way to get electricity distributed across long distances. Around that same time‚ Nikola Tesla was diligently trying to master the alternate current (AC) motors and generators even though he was discouraged from doing so. After proving his invention to be a practical solution for this problem‚ George Westinghouse

  • Eddy Current: Amperage

    Eddy Current 1. The principles of eddy current testing depend on the process of electromagnetic induction. 2. This process includes a test coil through which vary or alternating current (AC) is passed. 3. A varying current flowing in a test coil produces a varying electromagnetic field around the coil‚ As shown in this diagram Amperage * # of coils= strength of magnetic field 4. The electromagnetic field produced around the coils is directly proportional
