"Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed". Fortunately we can change its forms, using appropriate energy - conversion methods (or) processes.
Characteristics of Electrical Energy
An interesting facts about electrical energy is that neither it is available directly from nature nor it is finally consumed by any of the electrical and electronics systems (or) devices. It is so hard to believe, Let us go through a instance.
How does a ceiling fan rotates?
- A ceiling fan uses Capacitor start and run type Single phase Induction motor.
- According to Motor's principle "whenever a current carrying conductor is placed in a magnetic field, A conductor will experience a mechanical force on it, which tends it to rotate whose direction is given by Fleming's Left-hand Rule".
- When a stator of 1Փ Induction motor is supplied by 1Փ ac supply ,a current will produce in the stator winding and resulted in formation of main flux.
- This main flux cuts the rotor conductor of 1Փ Induction motor.
- By Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction , emf will induced in the rotor, as the rotor circuit is closed.
- Emf which is induced in the rotor produces it own flux called rotor flux.
- Now, the main flux (produced by the stator) and rotor flux (produced by the rotor) create's the desired torque which is required by the 1Փ ac motor to rotate.
- Unfortunately, By double field revolving theory, the main flux and the rotor flux produced by the 1Փ Induction motor is equal and opposite. Hence they cancelled each other and the net torque experienced by the rotor at staring is zero.
- To overcome this self starting problem we uses uses Capacitor start and run type Single phase Induction motor which produces rotating magnetic field to make the rotor to run at starting.
- Thus we can conclude by the above example two flux is fair enough to rotate the fan blades, but to create that two fluxes electrical energy is get used.
1Փ Induction motor is not self starting.
