Electromagnetic Induction

  1. 1. Electromagnetic Induction <ul><li>If a magnet is moved into a coil of wire a current is induced in the wire. </li></ul><ul><li>If the magnet is moved out of the coil the direction of the current is reversed </li></ul><ul><li>A wire, or coil of wire, cutting through a magnetic field will generate a voltage. This induced voltage causes a current to flow through the wire </li></ul>Electromagnetic Induction

  7. 7. Increasing the voltage <ul><li>The size of the induced voltage can be increased if; </li></ul><ul><li>the wire is moved faster </li></ul><ul><li>the magnet is stronger </li></ul><ul><li>the number of turns on the coil is increased </li></ul><ul><li>the area of the coil is greater </li></ul>Increasing the voltage
  8. 8. Increasing the voltage Increasing the voltage
  9. 9. Increasing the voltage Increasing the voltage
  10. 10. Generators and Dynamos <ul><li>Electricity is generated by rotating a coil of wire in a magnetic field or by rotating a magnet inside a coil of wire. This is how a generator works </li></ul>Generators and Dynamos

  14. 14. Transformers <ul><li>Transformers can be used to change the voltage of an a.c. supply. </li></ul><ul><li>A changing magnetic field in the primary coil induces a voltage in the secondary coil </li></ul><ul><li>Transformers only work with alternating voltage </li></ul>Transformers
  15. 15. Transformers Transformers
  16. 16. Transformers <ul><li>Step-up transformers produce high voltages so that little energy is lost in power lines (National Grid) </li></ul><ul><li>Step-down transformers reduce voltages before the electricity reaches our homes </li></ul><ul><li>Primary voltage/Secondary voltage = Number of turns on primary/Number of turns on secondary </li></ul>Step-up & Step-down Transformers
