Synchronous generator

A p rime mover (diesel en g ine or turbine) is connected to the shaft (rotor) to supply mechanical power. A dc current is applied to the rotor or field winding producing a rotating magnetic field (Br). A 3 φ set of vo l tages is i n d uced on t h e stator or armature windings.

Elementary Synchronous generator  The rotating magnetic field is created by the dc current applied to the field winding on the spinning rotor!

Voltage is induced on the 3 windings placed on the stator by the variation of the magnetic flux.

The rotor circuit (magnet)

2 and 4-pole machines have nonsalient (cylindrical) poles while machines with 4 or more poles have salient (sticking out) poles. The rotor circuit (magnet) Photograph of a salient 8pole synchronous machine rotor

The rotor circuit (magnet)

DC current is supplied to the rotor by means of slip rings and brushes.

Slip Rings: are metal rings encircling shaft and are insulated from it One end of rotor winding is connected to each of the 2 slip rings A stationary brush mounted on the machine casing ride on each slip ring

A brushless exciter system

The dc current that appears on the rotor is obtained from a rectified induced voltage.

Another brushless exciter system

Notice the small pilot exciter (extra windings, permanent magnet and rectifiers). The speed of rotation of a synchronous generator

The electrical frequency is synchronized to the rotor speed. Recall that the magnetic field created by a 3φ 4- pole machine moves 180° while the stator currents vary 360°. Therefore, a 2-pole generator must turn at 3600 r/min to produce a 60 Hz voltage while a 4-pole must turn at 1500 r/min to produce 50 Hz power.

The output voltage of the generator

Last figure shows a 2 pole rotor spinning inside a 3 phase stator, without load Rotor magnetic field B R develops a voltage E A is positive out of conductors, at top, and negative into the conductors at bottom of figure When there is no load on generator, the armature current is zero, E A =V φ If the generator is connected to a lagging PF load, the peak current occurs at an angle behind the peak voltage as in fig (b)

The output voltage of the generator

Current flowing in stator windings produces its magnetic field B S The direction of B S is found by R.H.R. as shown in fig(c). This B S produces another voltage in stator, named E stat as shown in figure Having these two voltage components in stator windings, total voltage in one phase is sum of E A and

E stat :

V φ = E A + E stat

and

B net = B R + B S

The angle of B net coincide with angle of V φ shown in

fig (d)

The output voltage of the generator

To model the effect of armature reaction, note:

E stat lies at an angle of 90 behind plane of maximum current I A E stat directly proportional to I A and X is constant of proportionality

 E stat = -j X I A voltage in one phase V φ = E A - j X I A

Synchronous Generators Power and Torque

Not all mechanical power goes to a synchronous generator becomes electrical power The difference between input & output power represent the losses.

Synchronous Generators Power and Torque

To derive that useful equation with the stator resistance ignored, a simplified phasor diagram is used

Synchronous Generators Power and Torque

The vertical segment bc is

E A sinδ

I A cos θ = E A sin δ / X S

or

X S I A cos θ

Substituting this in the equation of P out

P out = (3V φ E A sinδ) / X S

Since resistances assumed zero, no electrical losses in the generator and P conv = P out

The above equation shows that the power produced by a the generator depends on the angle δ (between V φ and E A ), the torque angle

Maximum power that the generator can supply occurs when δ = 90.

P max = (3V φ E A ) / X S

Synchronous Generators Power and Torque

From chapter 4, torque developed in a generator can be expressed as:

τ ind = k B R × B S

τ ind = k B R × B net

Magnitude of torque in this equation is:

τ ind = k B R B net sin δ δ is the angle between the rotor field and the net magnetic field Since B R produces voltage E A , and B net produces V φ , the angle δ between E A and V φ is same as angle between B R and B net
