DC GENERATORS
By: Phillip Southard
Animated DC Generator
How It Works
• A wire coil is connected to split ring and
rotated between two permanent magnets.
Brushes in contact with the split ring then
connect the generator to whatever is being
supplied power to complete the DC Circuit.
Applications
•
•
•
•
Cars
Solar Cells
Third-Rail power systems
Low-Voltage Electronics (Such as game
systems and household appliances)
Why Use It
• AC Current is commonly used to transport
power from the generation plant to homes.
Then it is “Rectified,” or transformed, into
DC power. DC power has a lower voltage
and is thus more appropriate to use on low
powered utilities.
