Synchronous Gen. Introduction
! In Synchronous generator, DC current is
supplied to the rotor winding, which
produces rotor magnetic field.
! The rotor is then rotated by prime mover
(diesel engine, steam turbine or water
turbine), producing a rotating magnetic
field in the machine.
! The rotating magnetic field induces a three
phase set of voltages with in the stator
windings of the generator.
4
Synchronous Generator Rotor
Construction
Rotor is a large electro magnet with a DC
winding on it. The poles are of two types:
1. Salient or Protruding or Sticking out of
the surface of the rotor.
2. Non Salient or flushing with the rotor
surface.
5
! Thin laminations same like transformer to
reduce eddy currents.
! DC current must be supplied to the rotor
Salient Pole Rotor
4 or more poles
Non salient Pole Rotor
Normally used for 2 or 4 poles
6
! How to supply DC to the rotor/field
1. By an external DC source by means of slip
rings and brushes.
2. From a special DC source, mounted directly
on the shaft.
" Slip rings are used for smaller machines
1. Slip rings increase maintenance, need to
check brushes regularly.
2. Carbon brushes has voltage drop,
significant power loss.
7
" For larger machines Brushless exciters
are used.
" It is a small AC generator with its field
circuit on the stator and armature
circuit on the rotor.
" Three phase output generated on the
rotor is then rectified and fed to the
rotor field circuit.

synchronized with the mechanical rate of
the rotation of generator.

1. self inductance of armature coil
2. Resistance of armature coil
3. Distortion of air gap magnetic field by current
flowing in stator.
4. The effect of salient pole rotor shape.( no
discussion in this course)
14
! When generator spins, E
A
is induced in stator
windings.
! If loaded current flows in the stator which will
produce a magnetic field.
! This stator magnetic field distorts the original
rotor magnetic field. The effect is called

reactance of winding will be zero.

2. Increase reliability (what is
reliability?).

lost.
3. If many generators - can shut down

inefficient.
