7.1 The Phenomenon of Electromagnetic Induction


Consider some experiments were conducted by Michael Faraday that led to the discovery of the Faradays law of induction as shown in figures 7.1a, 7.1b, 7.1c, 7.1d and 7.1e.

Move towards the coil

Fig. 7.1e From the experiments : When the bar magnet is stationary, the galvanometer not show any deflection (no current flows in the coil). When the bar magnet is moved relatively towards the coil, the galvanometer shows a momentary deflection to the right. When the bar magnet is moved relatively away from the coil, the galvanometer is seen to deflect in the opposite direction (Fig.7.1d). Therefore when there is any relative motion between the coil and the bar magnet , the current known as induced current will flow momentarily through the galvanometer. This current due to an induced e.m.f across the coil.

SF027

Conclusion : When the magnetic flux through a coil changes (magnetic field lines been cut) thus the induced e.m.f. will exist across the coil. The magnitude of the induced e.m.f. depends on the speed of the relative motion where when v increase induced e.m.f. also increase e.m.f. v decrease induced e.m.f. also decrease e.m.f.

v is proportional to the induced e.m.f. e.m.f.

7.2 Faradays law and Lenzs law


7.2.1 Faradays law of induction States the magnitude of the induced e.m.f. is proportional to the e.m.f. rate of change of the magnetic flux. flux. Mathematically,

where

dB dB or = dt dt dB : change of magnetic flux dt : change of time : induced e.m.f.

(7.2a)

SF027

The negative sign indicates that the direction of induced e.m.f. always 5 oppose the change of magnetic flux producing it (Lenzs law).

For a coil of N turns, eq. (7.2a) can be written as

Since

dB (7.2b) dt dB = f i , then eq. (7.2b) can be written as

= N

= N

( f i ) dt

From the definition of magnetic flux,

f : final magnetic flux i : initial magnetic flux

where

Note : if the coil is connected in series to a resistor of resistance R and the induced e.m.f exist in the coil as shown in figure 7.2a. Therefore the induced current I is given by d = B and = IR Fig. 7.2a
SF027

B = BA cos then eq. (7.2a) also can be written as d ( BA cos ) = dt

dt dB IR = dt

To calculate the magnitude of induced e.m.f., the negative sign can be ignored. If the coil has N turns, then each of turns will have a magnetic flux, B of BAcos through it, therefore the magnetic flux linkage (refer to the combined amount of flux through all the turns) is given by

magnetic flux linkage = NB

Example 1 : A rectangular coil of sides 10 cm x 5.0 cm is placed between N and S poles with the plane of the coil parallel to the magnetic field as shown in figure below. R Q

If the coil is turned by 90 about its rotation axis and the magnitude of magnetic flux density is 1.0 T, find the change in the magnetic flux through the coil.

From the figure, =90 thus the initial magnetic flux through the coil is

Finally,

r B
r A

From the figure, =0 thus the final magnetic flux through the coil is

f = BA cos f = 50 x10 4 Wb

Therefore the change in magnetic flux through the coil is

B = f i B = 50 x10 4 Wb

SF027

Example 2 : The magnetic flux passing through a coil of 1000 turns is increased quickly but steadily at rate of 2.0 x 10-2 Wb s-1. Calculate the induced e.m.f. in the coil. Solution:

dB = 2.0 x10 2 Wb s -1 dt By applying the Faradays law equation for a coil of N turns , thus the
N=1000 turns,
= N
induced e.m.f. is

dB dt = 20 V

Example 3 : A circular shaped coil 3.0 cm in radius, containing 20 turns and have a resistance of 5.0 is placed perpendicular to a magnetic field of flux density of 5.0 x 10-3 T. If the magnetic flux density is reduced steadily to zero in time of 2.0 ms, calculate the induced current flows in the coil. Solution:

N=20 turns, r=3.0x10-2 m, R=5.0 , Bi=5.0x10-3 T , Bf=0, dt=2.0x10-3 s


A = r 2 A = 2.8 x10 3 m 2

The area of the circular shaped coil is

initially,

From the figure, =0 thus the change in magnetic flux through the coil is

By applying the Faradays law equation for a coil of N turns , thus

dB = f i dB = B f A cos Bi A cos dB = Bi A

dB and = IR dt ( Bi A) IR = N dt I = 3.0 x10 2 A

Example 4 : (exercise) A flat coil having an area of 8.0 cm2 and 50 turns lies perpendicular to a magnetic field of 0.20 T. If the flux density is steadily reduced to zero, taking 0.50 s, find a. the initial flux through the coil. b. the initial flux linkage. c. the induced e.m.f. (Lowe&Rounce,pg.206,no.1) Ans. : 1.6 x 10-4 Wb, 80 x 10-4 Wb, 16 mV 10

7.2.2 Lenzs law States an induced electric current always flows in such a direction that it opposes the change producing it. it. This law is essentially a form of the law of conservation of energy. energy An illustration of lenzs law can be shown by using the experiments below. First experiment : (figure 7.2b) In figure 7.2b the magnitude of the magnetic field at the solenoid increases as the bar magnet is moved towards it. Direction of induced current Right hand grip rule.

To determine the direction of the current through the galvanometer which corresponds to a deflection in a particular sense, then the current through the solenoid seen is in the direction that make the solenoid upper end becomes a north pole. This opposes the motion of the bar magnet and obey the lenzs law.

At the moment when the switch S is closed, current I begins to closed flow in the solenoid P and producing a magnetic field inside the solenoid P. Suppose that the field points towards the solenoid Q. The magnetic flux through the solenoid Q increases with time. time According to Faradays law ,an induced current due to induced e.m.f. will exist in solenoid Q. The induced current flows in solenoid Q must produce a magnetic field that oppose the change producing it (increase in flux). Hence based on Lenzs law, the induced current flows in circuit consists of solenoid Q is anticlockwise (fig. 7.2e) and galvanometer shows a deflection. 13

At the moment when the switch S is opened, the current I starts opened to decrease in the solenoid P and magnetic flux through the solenoid Q decreases with time. According to Faradays law ,an time induced current due to induced e.m.f. will exist in solenoid Q. The induced current flows in solenoid Q must produce a magnetic field that oppose the change producing it (decrease in flux). Hence based on Lenzs law, the induced current flows in circuit consists of solenoid Q is clockwise (fig. 7.2f) and galvanometer seen to deflect in the opposite direction of fig.7.2e.

7.5.1 Self-induction Consider a solenoid which is connected to a battery , a switch S and variable resistor R, forming an open circuit as shown in figure 7.5a. When the switch S is closed, a current I begins to flow in the solenoid.

If the resistance of the variable resistor changes, thus the current flows in the solenoid also changed, then so too Fig. 7.5a does magnetic flux linkage . According to the Faradays law, an e.m.f. has to be induced in the solenoid itself since the flux linkage changes. In accordance with Lenzs law, the induced e.m.f. opposes the change that has induced it and it is therefore known as a back e.m.f. e.m.f ind For the current I increases : S R

7.7 Mutual induction and Mutual inductance


7.7.1 Mutual induction Consider two circular close-packed coils near each other and sharing a common central axis as shown in figure 7.7a. A current I1 flows in coil 1, produced by the battery in the external circuit. The current I1 produces a magnetic field lines inside it and this field lines also pass through coil 2 as shown in figure 7.7.a. If the current I1 changes with time, the magnetic flux through coils 1 and 2 will change with time simultaneously.

I1

Due to the change of magnetic flux through coil 2, an e.m.f. is induced in coil 2. This is in accordance to the Faradays law of induction. In other words, a change of current in one coil leads to the production of an induced e.m.f. in a second coil which is magnetically linked to the first coil.

This process is known as mutual induction. Mutual induction is defined as the process of producing an induced e.m.f. in one coil due to the change of current in another e.m.f. coil. At the same time, the self-induction occurs in coil 1 since the selfmagnetic flux through it changes. 7.7.2 Mutual inductance, M From the figure 7.7a, consider coils 1 and 2 have N1 and N2 turns respectively. If the current I1 in coil 1 is changes, the magnetic flux through coil 2 will change with time and an induced e.m.f will occur in coil 2, 2 where

7.8.1 Energy losses in transformers Although transformers are very efficient devices, small energy losses do occur in them owing to four main causes: Resistance of coils The wire used for the primary and secondary coils has resistance and so ordinary (I2R) heat losses occur. Overcome : The transformer coils are made of thick copper wire. wire Eddy current The alternating magnetic flux induces eddy currents in the iron core. This current causes heating and dissipation of power in the core. Overcome : The effect is reduced by using laminated core as shown in figure 7.8c and 7.8d.

Hysteresis The magnetization of the core is repeatedly reversed by the alternating magnetic field. The resulting expenditure of energy in the core appears as heat. Overcome : By using a magnetic material (such as Mumetal) which has low hysteresis loss. loss Flux leakage The flux due to the primary may not all link the secondary. Some of the flux loss in the air. Overcome : By designing the iron core suitably. Example 21: The primary coil of a transformer has 1200 turns and the secondary coil has 60 turns. The primary coil is connected to an a.c. supply of 240 V. A resistor of resistance 3.0 is connected to the secondary coil. Assume that there are no loss of power and magnetic flux, calculate the current flows in the secondary circuit. Solution: NP =1200 turns, For ideal transformer, N P

When current, I flows in the coil of the armature which is in the magnetic field, magnetic force is produced and will cause the coil to rotate as shown in figure 7.9a. As the coil rotates, its magnetic flux changes and so an e.m.f. is induced across the coil. (Faradays law) By Lenzs law this induced e.m.f. opposes the current which is making the coil turns. Therefore

it is called back e.m.f. (B)

As the motor speeds up, the back e.m.f.,B increases because it is

When the motor is first switched on, the back e.m.f. is zero: it rises as the motor speeds up. When the motor is running freely, the back e.m.f is nearly equal to the supply voltage and so there will not be much current drawn. When a load is applied to the motor, the motor slows down, the back e.m.f. falls, and so the current in the coil increases. Figure 7.9a also can be simplified into circuit shown in figure 7.9b.
