4.2 Average Value and R.M.S. Value of an Alternating Waveform

Average value or mean value

**In engineering practice the mean value, 1•., of an alternating waveform is defined
**

as the average value under one-halfof the waveform. The reason for this is that the

mathematical average area under the complete cycle is zero (since the area under

the positive half-cycle is equal to that under the negative half-cycle).

The average value can be determined either graphically or analytically; in the

latter case it is necessary to know the equation of the waveform.

the area under a curve is illustrated in figure 4.2.

centre of rotation air gap stator (a) Figure 8.la both the stator and the rotor are salient. machines the fixed and rotating parts are usually referred to as the frame and armature respectively. In the machine in figure 8.lb the stator and rotor are both cylindrical. Electrical machines can be divided into single-excited machines and doubleexcited machines. The stationary part of the machine is known as the stator and the rotating part as the rotor. these machines are of limited practical value. In the case of d. Double-excited machines carry magnetising windings on both the stator and the rotor.1 (b) Salient and cylindrical machine systems . A cylindrical magnetic system is one that is cylindrical about the axis of rotation.c.1 Types of Electrical Machine An electrical machine is an electromechanical energy-convertor and consists of a magnetic circuit having two parts separated from each other by an air gap. Salient and cylindrical magnetic systems When used in conjunction with machines the word 'salient' means 'jutting out'.8 Electrical Machines 8. In single-excited machines only one member (either the stator or the rotor) carries a magnetising winding. In practice many machines are designed with either a salient stator and a cylindrical rotor or a cylindrical stator and a salient rotor. either the stator or the rotor can have a salient construction. In the machine in figure 8. the majority of practical machines are of this type.

Angle A. then the machine produces a static torque. leading to an increase in the reluctance of the magnetic path. If the rotor is excited by a. T. For this reason the torque causing alignment is called the reluctance torque. which does not result in continuous rotation.2 Single-excited machine If the rotor is excited by d.. the reversal of the rotor current causes the rotor to rotate at a constant speed. The above comments also apply if the stator is excited and the rotor is simply an iron circuit. Turning the rotor further away from alignment causes the length of the magnetic path to increase. Figure 8. is known as the torque angle.2 Single-excited Machines A single-excited machine having a salient structure is illustrated in figure 8. dependent on the supply frequency..2.1. the results for various combinations are listed in table 8.65 Electrical Machines 8. Table 8. This speed is known as its synchronous speed.c.1 Is a reluctance torque developed? Stator salient salient cylindrical cylindrical Rotor Stator excited Rotor excited salient cylindrical salient cylindrical yes no yes no yes yes no no . Not all single-excited machines develop a reluctance torque. Machines of this kind are known as reluctance motors and are used in clocks. In general a reluctance torque is developed if the reluctance of the magnetic system changes when the rotor is turned away from the alignment position. Owing to the magnetic poles induced in the stator there is a rotational force that attempts to pull the rotor and stator into alignment..c. then once the rotor is caused initially to rotate by some applied external force.

Field windings for a d. machine and for salient-pole alternators are examples of this type. such as those having a salient stator and a salient rotor.1). . it is a multi-turn coil that is wound on to a protruding branch of the iron circuit. the rotor experiences an excitation torque of where k =constant of the machine.

Figure 8. is developed. the most important of which are phase windings and commutator windings. this machine does not experience a reluctance torque (see also table 8.c.3b produces only an excitation torque.4 Windings Windings may be classified as concentrated or distributed. The machine shown in figure 8. The excitation torque causes the magnetic fields to tend to align. that is.3 Double-excited Machines When the stator and the rotor both carry windings a torque known as the excitation torque.

This is invariably on the rotor (armature) of the machine.4. the coils being connected in series-parallel arrangements depending on the voltage and current requirements of the winding.4 shows the general arrangement of a single-layer phase winding (that is. Figure 8. one coil side per slot) that is used to accommodate phase A of a three-phase machine. each having a 'spread' of about one pole pitch. which gives two parallel paths for current flow through the armature (frequently used in high-voltage machines). Figure 8. The winding for phase B is accommodated in slots b and b' and that for phase C in slots c and c . belonging to two different coils. (2) Commutator winding. Alternatively a double-layer winding may be used in which each slot accommodates two coil sides.4 Single-layer phase winding .Electrical Machines 67 Distributed windings A distributed winding consists of a number of coils. which make contact with the commutator. This is a distributed winding that is located in slots around the face of the magnetic circuit. Junctions at various points on the winding are each connected to individual segments on the commutator. In this type of drawing it is assumed that the magnetic circuit can be cut at some convenient point and unrolled flat. which gives as many parallel paths through the armature as there are poles on the machine (frequently used in high-current machines) (b) wave winding. In this case the coils have the same span. A simple way of representing the arrangement is by means of the developed view of the winding in figure 8. the coils being connected in the form of a continuous circuit without a break. the coils being joined together in series. (1) There are two types of commutator winding (a) lap winding. Phase winding. one below the other. Current is either taken from or injected into the winding via brushes.

Consequently. A controlling hair-spring (usually of phosphor bronze) controls the angular movement of the moving system (see figure 9.1 Air-damping .5). One form of air-friction damping mechanism is shown in figure 9. A damping force is generated when the air pressure in the chamber is either increased or decreased by the movement of the piston. The controlling torque produced by the spring increases linearly with the angular movement of the moving system.1. The eddy currents are induced either in the metallic former that supports the element of the moving system (see figure 9. (2) Airfriction damping.

10.1 Semiconductors

Semiconductors include a wide range of materials whose resistivities are midway

between those of good conductors and those of good insulators. The most widely

used semiconductor materials are silicon and germanium, with other materials

being used in more specialised applications.

i-type semiconductors or intrinsic semiconductors

**Intrinsic semiconductors or i-type semiconductors are the natural pure-type
**

semiconductor materials. The majority of semiconductors used in practice are

either n-type or p-type materials (see below), which are formed by doping i-type

materials with suitable dopants.

n-type semiconductors

**Ann-type semiconductor is one having mobile negative-charge carriers (electrons)
**

in its structure. Current flow in semiconductors is due largely to the movement of

what are known as majority-charge carriers in that material; inn-type materials

electrons are the majority-charge carriers. A small proportion of current flow in

semiconductors is due to minority-charge carriers; inn-type materials positivecharge carriers (known as holes) are the minority-charge carriers.

p-type semiconductors

**A p-type semiconductor is one having mobile positive-charge carriers (holes) in its
**

structure. In p-type materials, current flow is due largely to the movement of holes

(which are in this case the majority-charge carriers) while a small proportion of

current flow is due to electrons (which are in this case the minority-charge

carriers).

Diode characteristics

A rectifier is a two-terminal device (diode) that offers low resistance to current

Rectifiers

**flow in one direction and a very high resistance to current flow in the reverse
**

direction.

A diode has two electrodes: an anode and a cathode. It offers low resistance to

current flow when the anode is positive with respect to the cathode; in this mode it

is said to be forward-biased. It offers very high resistance to current flow when the

anode is negative with respect to the cathode; in this mode it is said to be reversebiased.

The characteristics of both ideal and practical diodes are shown in figure 10.1.

An ideal diode (characteristic shown in bold line in the figure) offers no resistance

to current flow in the forward-biased mode (first quadrant) and infinite resistance

to flow in the reverse-biased mode (third quadrant). A practical diode offers a

small resistance to current flow in the forward-biased mode, when forward

conduction takes place. In the reverse-biased mode a leakage current of small

value passes through the diode, in which case it is said to operate in its reverseblocking mode; as the reverse-bias voltage is increased a point is reached at which

the current through the diode increases rapidly, from when it is said to operate in

its reverse-breakdown mode.

p-n junction diode

**The p-n junction diode is a single crystal of semiconductor material that has both
**

p- and n-regions within the crystal (see figure 10.2). The diode conducts when the

p-region (the anode) is positive with respect to the n-region (the cathode).

When the diode is reverse-biased the mobile charge carriers are drawn back

from the junction and a depletion layer, which is depleted of charge carriers, exists

at the junction. This region effectively becomes an insulating region.

Zener diode

Certain types of diode, known as Zener diodes, are operated in their reversebreakdown mode. The diode is not damaged provided that the rating of the device

is not exceeded. For example, the maximum 'reverse' current through a 1 W, 10 V

Zener diode should not exceed 0.1 A. A feature of Zener diodes is that, when

operated in the reverse-breakdown mode, the voltage across them does not alter

significantly over a fairly wide current range. Applications of Zener diodes include

voltage-reference sources, meter protection and bias-voltage supplies.

Thermionic diode or valve diode

**This is an electronic valve containing an anode and a cathode inside a container
**

(usually made of glass) that may be either evacuated or gas-filled. The symbol for a

vacuum diode (known as a 'hard' valve) is shown in figure 10.3. The cathode emits

electrons when heated, the source of heat in the valve in figure 10.3 being the

heating element (this type of valve is known as an indirectly heated diode).

characteristic is known as the space-charge-limited region, since in this region of

'space charge' surrounding the cathode. The diode is normally operated in this
