Construction of DC Generator



construction of DC generator a DC generator is a device that converts mechanical energy into DC electrical energy in order to understand the working of a DC generator we have first explained the construction and assembly of DC generator you let's first understand the construction of a DC generator stator magnets they are basically electromagnets with such an arrangement so that adjacent poles have opposite polarity they perform the function of producing the magnetic field our mature it is a system of conductors or coil which is free to rotate on the supported bearings the armature consists of various parts we will take each part one by one to start with we have our major core it is made up of high permeability thin silicon content steel laminations and the outer periphery of the core has slots to carry armature windings next is armature winding it is generally made of of copper wires and is wound over the armature core commutator the commutator is cylindrical in shape and is made of copper it performed two basic functions one being collecting the current from the armature conductor and the other being converting the alternating current of the armature into the unidirectional current in the external circuit with the help of brushes Prussia's they are usually made of carbon or graphite and the main function of brushes is to collect current from moving commutator you shoved shaft is a rotating part of DC motor we obtain the final output in the form of mechanical energy from the shaft the armature is mounted over the shaft now we will see the assembling of DC generator we can now observe in the animation how this generator is assembled now after the construction assembling of DC generator we will discuss the working in detail
