AC GENERATOR THEORY
Therefore, the equivalence of these units is expressed with a conversion factor as
= 5 hp x 746W
Output Power = 2 kW
0.54 x 100
The important information covered in this chapter is summarized below.
AC Generator Theory Summary
The frequency of the generated voltage in an AC generator can be calculated by
multiplying the number of poles by the speed of the generator and dividing by
a factor of 120.
The three losses found in an AC generator are:
Internal voltage drops due to the internal resistance and impedance of the
Efficiency of an AC generator can be calculated by dividing the output by the
input and multiplying by 100.
