3-1 Electromagnetic induction phenomena

1.1 Magnetic flux and flux linkage

Consider a situation where the magnetic field is uniform in magnitude and

direction. Place a rectangular coil in the B-field. (Fig. 3.1)

Fig. 3.1 a rectangular coil in the B-field

area A

The magnetic flux, , is defined as the product of the field magnitude by the

area crossed by the field lines.

1.2 Electromagnetic induction phenomena

Provided that the magnetic flux varies in a circuit, there will be a current in

the circuit and no matter what method is used. Generating a current in a

magnetic field is called electromagnetic induction, and the current is called

an induction current.

3-2 Faraday law of electromagnetic induction and Lenzs law

(i) Faradays law of magnetic induction (Fig. 3.2):

The emf induced in a loop of wire is proportional to the rate of change of

magnetic flux through the coil. This statement is known as Faradays law.

We often call the emf induced by a changing magnetic flux and induced emf,

and the current it produces is called an induced current or an induction

current.

Fig. 3.2 a current is set up in the circuit as

long as there is relative motion between the

magnet and the loop

(ii) Lenzs law

Lenzs law: the polarity of the induced emf is such that is produces a current

whose magnetic field opposes the change in magnetic flux through the loop.

That is, the induced current tends to maintain the original flux through the

circuit.

We can write Faradays law of induction mathematically with the equation:

t

Au

E =

A

Here E is the induced emf in one loop of wire, Au

t A

is the change in

magnetic flux, and is the time interval over which the change takes place.

The minus sign indicates the direction of the emf and is in agreement with

Lenzs law. If we apply this equation to a coil containing N loops or turns of

3

wire, then

N

E =

3-3 Motional emf

In our discussion of Faradays law, we examined the changing flux in a loop

of wire due to the relative motion of the field and the loop. Now we extend

our study to include the effects of a magnetic field on a straight piece of wire

or other conductor that moves relative to the field. We will see that an emf is

developed between the ends of the wire.

To investigate the induction of emf on a moving conductor, lets consider a

conducting bar of length sliding along a stationary U-shaped conductor

that is perpendicular to a uniform magnetic field B (Fig. 3.3). The bar moves

with a constant speed v in the x direction. As the bar moves, the area

enclosed by the loop consisting of the bar and the U-shaped conductor

increases. Consequently, the magnetic flux through the loop increases. The

emf developed around the loop is obtained from Faradays law:

3-4 AC Generators

AC generator (Fig. 2.4)

Fig. 3.4 a simple AC generator

As the Fig. 2.4 shows, if the field B is uniform and the loop rotates with a

constant angular speed e , the magnetic flux through the single loop of area

A may be expressed as

cos cos B A BA BA t u e

u = = =

This flux is a function of time, from the Faradays law, we calculate the emf

to be

Note: generalize the result to N loops:

So, the output of an alternator is a sinusoidal emf. When an alternator is

connected to a closed circuit, it produces a sinusoidally alternating current.

3-5 The physics parameters of alternating current

Alternating current: the current repeatedly reverses its direction.

Peak value of alternating current (or potential difference): the maximum

current (or potential difference) that is the same value in either direction.

Peak-to-peak value: the difference of the peak value in the opposite direction.

Root mean square value of an alternating current: the value of direct current

that would give the same heating effect as the alternating current in the same

resistor.

3-6 The transformer

One of the most important applications of mutual induction and

self-induction takes place in a transformer. A transformer is a device for

increasing or decreasing an AC voltage.

Fig. 3.5 shows a drawing of a transformer. The transformer consists of an

iron core on which two coils are wound: a primary coil with turns, and a

secondary coil with

p

N

s

N turns.

6

www.gcephysics.com

The primary coil is connected to an ac generator. And the alternating current

in the primary coil establishes a changing magnetic field in the iron core.

Because iron is easily magnetized, it greatly enhances the magnetic field

relative to that in an air core and guides the field lines to the secondary coil.

In a well-designed core, nearly all the magnetic flux u that passes through

each turn of the primary coil also goes through each turn of the secondary

coil. Since the magnetic field is changing, the flux through the primary and

secondary coils is also changing, and consequently an emf is induced in both

coils. In the secondary coil the induced emf

s

E arises from mutual induction

and is given by Faradays law of electromagnetic induction as

s s

E N

t

Au

=

A

p

E

In the primary coil the induced emf is due to self-induction and is

specified by Faradays law as

p p

E N

t

Au

=

A

The term

t

Au

A

is the same in both of these equations, since the same flux

penetrates each turn of both coils. So

s s

p p

E N

E N

In a high-quality transformer the resistances of the coils are negligible, so the

7

www.gcephysics.com

magnitudes of the emfs,

s

E

p

and E , are nearly equal to the terminal

voltages,

s

V

p

V and , across the coils. The relation

s s

E N

E N

= is called the

transformer equation and is usually written in terms of the terminal voltages:

Thus

Transformer equation:

sec

s s

p p

V N ondary voltage

primary voltage V N

= =

According to the transformer equation, if

s

N

p

N is greater than , the

secondary voltage is greater than the primary voltage. In this case we have a

step-up transformer. On the other hand, if

s

N

p

N is less than , the secondary

voltage is less than the primary voltage. In this case we have a step-down

transformer.

The transformer can change the voltage of the secondary coil, but the energy

conservation requires that the energy delivered to the secondary coil must be

the same as the energy delivered to the primary coil, provided no energy is

dissipated in heating these coils or is otherwise lost. In a well-designed

transformer, less than 1% of the input energy is lost in the form of heat.

Noting that power is energy per unit time, and assuming 100% energy

transfer, the average power p P delivered to the primary coil is equal to the

average power delivered to the secondary coil; so s P

5. (a) In an experiment to illustrate electromagnetic induction, a permanent

magnet is moved towards a coil, as shown in Fig. 5.1, causing an emf to be

induced across the coil.

Using Faradays law, explain why a larger emf would be induced in this

experiment if a stronger magnet were moved at the same speed.

10

www.gcephysics.com

You may be awarded additional marks to those shown in brackets for the

quality of written communication in your answer.

Solution:

A stronger magnet produces flux lines closer together, which causes more

flux lines cut per unit time. And the rate of change of flux is greater, thus the

emf is larger.

Review:

The emf induced in a loop of wire is proportional to the rate of change of

magnetic flux through the coil. This statement is known as Faradays law.

We often call the emf induced by a changing magnetic flux and induced emf,

and the current it produces is called an induced current or an induction

current.

14. (a) (i) Outline the essential features of a step-down transformer when in

operation.

Solution:

A transformer is a device for increasing or decreasing an AC voltage. The

transformer consists of an iron core on which two coils are wound: a primary

coil with turns, and a secondary coil with

s

N turns. The primary coil is

connected to an ac generator. And if

s

N

p

N is less than , the secondary

voltage is less than the primary voltage. In this case we have a step-down

transformer.

(a) (ii) Describe two causes of the energy losses in a transformer and discuss

how these energy losses may be reduced by suitable design and choice of

materials.

The quality of your written communication will be assessed in this question.

Solution:

Any two from the following four:

(1) When a transformer is in operation, there are ac currents in the primary

and secondary coils. The coils have some resistance and the currents cause

heating of the coils, causing some energy to be lost. This loss may be reduced

by using low resistance wire for the coils. This is most important for the high

current winding (the secondary coil of a step-down transformer). Thick

copper wire is used for this winding, because thick wire of low resistivity has

a low resistance.

(2) The ac current in the primary coil magnetises, demagnetises and

remagnetises the core continuously in opposite directions. Energy is required

both to magnetise and to demagnetise the core and this energy is wasted

because it simply heats the core. The energy wasted may be reduced by

choosing a material for the core which is easily magnetised and demagnetised,

ie a magnetically soft material such as iron, or a special alloy, rather than

steel.

(3) The magnetic flux passing through the core is changing continuously.

The metallic core is being cut by this flux and the continuous change of flux

induces emfs in the core. In a continuous core these induced emfs cause

currents known as eddy currents, which heat the core and cause energy to be

wasted. The eddy current effect may be reduced by laminating the core

instead of having a continuous solid core; the laminations are separated by

very thin layers of insulator. Currents cannot flow in a conductor which is

discontinuous (or which has a very high resistance).

(4) If a transformer is to be efficient, as much as possible of the magnetic flux

created by the primary current must pass through the secondary coil. This

will not happen if these coils are widely separated from each other on the

core. Magnetic losses may be reduced by adopting a design which has the

two coils close together, eg by better core design, such as winding them on

19

top of each other around the same part of a common core which also

surrounds them.

(b) Electronic equipment, such as a TV set, may usually be left in standby

mode so that it is available for instant use when needed. Equipment left in

standby mode continues to consume a small amount of power. The internal

circuits operate at low voltage, supplied from a transformer. The transformer

is disconnected from the mains supply only when the power switch on the

equipment is turned off. This arrangement is outlined in Fig. 14.1.

Fig. 14.1

When in standby mode, the transformer supplies an output current of

300 mA at 9.0V to the internal circuits of the TV set.

(b) (i) Calculate the power wasted in the internal circuits when the TV set is

left in standby mode.

Solution:

(b) (ii) If the efficiency of the transformer is 0.90, show that the current

supplied by the 230 V mains supply under these conditions is 13mA.

(b) (iii) The TV set is left in standby mode for 80% of the time. Calculate the

amount of energy, in J, that is wasted in one year through the use of the

standby mode.

(c) The power consumption of an inactive desktop computer is typically

double that of a TV set in standby mode. This waste of energy may be

avoided by switching off the computer every time it is not in use. Discuss one

advantage and one disadvantage of doing this.

Solution:

Advantage: Cost saving, saving essential fuel resources, reduced global

warming.

Disadvantage: energy required to reboot may exceed energy saved by

switching off.

15. A coil rotating in a magnetic field produces the following voltage

waveform when connected to an oscilloscope.

With the same oscilloscope settings, which one of the following voltage

waveforms would be produced if the coil were rotated at twice the original

speed?

21

www.gcephysics.com

Solution:

The induced emf is given by

sin E BA t e e =

Where e is angular speed

And now the speed is doubled, thus the induced emf now is given by

Thus, the amplitude is doubled, but the time period is halved.
