Generator Theory

Course Description

This online course provides the fundamentals of generator theory. It covers the factors that affect the induction of current and explains the operation of AC, 3-phase generators and is divided into two modules.

  • Basics of Electromagnetism:  teaches you about the characteristics of magnetic flux and the factors affecting current induced in a conductor.
  • Components and Operation of an AC Generator:  teaches you about the major components and operation of an AC, 3-phase synchronous generator. It also explains the tabular sequence winding diagram.

Learning Objectives

This course will provide basic knowledge on the following:

  • Characteristics of magnetic flux and the factors affecting current induced in a conductor
  • 3-phase windings, connections to the power system and WYE connection to the ground/ neutral in a generic diagram of an AC, 3-phase synchronous generator
  • Rotating field in a generic diagram of an AC, 3 phase synchronous generator
  • How the physical components of an AC, 3-phase synchronous generator create 3-phase current
  • Actual 3-phase stator winding diagram: top and bottom armature bars; turbine and generator end connections; armature terminals; core slots
  • Tabular sequence winding diagram
