PowerPoint Presentation: The sinusoidal waveform (sine wave) is the fundamental alternating current (ac) and alternating voltage waveform. Sine waves Electrical sine waves are named from the mathematical function with the same shape. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: A wave is a disturbance. Unlike water waves, electrical waves cannot be seen directly but they have similar characteristics. All periodic waves can be constructed from sine waves , which is why sine waves are fundamental. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Sine waves are characterized by the amplitude and period. The amplitude is the maximum value of a voltage or current; the period is the time interval for one complete cycle. Sine waves Example The amplitude ( A ) of this sine wave is 20 V The period is 50.0 m s A T 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: The period of a sine wave can be measured between any two corresponding points on the waveform. Sine waves T T T T T T By contrast, the amplitude of a sine wave is only measured from the center to the maximum point. A 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: 3.0 Hz Frequency Frequency ( f ) is the number of cycles that a sine wave completes in one second. Frequency is measured in hertz (Hz). Example If 3 cycles of a wave occur in one second, the frequency is 1.0 s 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: The period and frequency are reciprocals of each other. Period and frequency and Thus, if you know one, you can easily find the other. Example If the period is 50 m s, the frequency is 0.02 MHz = 20 kHz. (The 1/ x key on your calculator is handy for converting between f and T .) 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Sinusoidal voltages are produced by ac generators and electronic oscillators. Sinusoidal voltage sources Generation of a sine wave A B C D When a conductor rotates in a constant magnetic field, a sinusoidal wave is generated. When the conductor is moving parallel with the lines of flux, no voltage is induced. When the loop is moving perpendicular to the lines of flux, the maximum voltage is induced. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Generators convert rotational energy to electrical energy. A stationary field alternator with a rotating armature is shown. The armature has an induced voltage, which is connected through slip rings and brushes to a load. The armature loops are wound on a magnetic core (not shown for simplicity). AC generator (alternator) Small alternators may use a permanent magnet as shown here; other use field coils to produce the magnetic flux. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: AC generator (alternator) By increasing the number of poles, the number of cycles per revolution is increased. A four-pole generator will produce two complete cycles in each revolution. 2/18/2013 RIT

PowerPoint Presentation: Sine wave voltage and current values There are several ways to specify the voltage of a sinusoidal voltage waveform. The amplitude of a sine wave is also called the peak value, abbreviated as V P for a voltage waveform. Example The peak voltage of this waveform is 20 V. V P 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: The voltage of a sine wave can also be specified as either the peak-to-peak or the rms value. The peak-to-peak is twice the peak value. The rms value is 0.707 times the peak value. Sine wave voltage and current values Example The peak-to-peak voltage is 40 V. The rms voltage is 14.1 V. V PP V rms 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: For some purposes, the average value (actually the half-wave average) is used to specify the voltage or current. By definition, the average value is as 0.637 times the peak value. Sine wave voltage and current values Example The average value for the sinusoidal voltage is 12.7 V. V avg 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Angular measurements can be made in degrees ( o ) or radians. The radian (rad) is the angle that is formed when the arc is equal to the radius of a circle. There are 360 o or 2 p radians in one complete revolution. Angular measurement 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: There are 2 p radians in one complete revolution and 360 o in one revolution. To find the number of radians, given the number of degrees: To find the number of degrees, given the number of radians: Angular measurement This can be simplified to:

PowerPoint Presentation: Instantaneous values of a wave are shown as v or i . The equation for the instantaneous voltage ( v ) of a sine wave is Sine wave equation where Example If the peak voltage is 25 V, the instantaneous voltage at 50 degrees is V p = q = Peak voltage Angle in rad or degrees 19.2 V 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Sine wave equation A plot of the example in the previous slide (peak at 25 V) is shown. The instantaneous voltage at 50 o is 19.2 V as previously calculated. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: The sine wave can be represented as the projection of a vector rotating at a constant rate. This rotating vector is called a phasor . Phasors are useful for showing the phase relationships in ac circuits. Phasors 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Phase shift where f = Phase shift The phase of a sine wave is an angular measurement that specifies the position of a sine wave relative to a reference. To show that a sine wave is shifted to the left or right of this reference, a term is added to the equation given previously.
PowerPoint Presentation: Phase shift Notice that a lagging sine wave is below the axis at 0 o Example of a wave that lags the reference v = 30 V sin ( q - 45 o ) …and the equation has a negative phase shift 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Phase shift Notice that a leading sine wave is above the axis at 0 o Example of a wave that leads the reference v = 30 V sin ( q + 45 o ) …and the equation has a positive phase shift 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: An important application of phase-shifted sine waves is in electrical power systems. Electrical utilities generate ac with three phases that are separated by 120° as illustrated. Phase shift 120 o Normally, 3-phase power is delivered to the user with three hot lines plus neutral. The voltage of each phase, with respect to neutral is 120 V. 120 o 120 o 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: The power formulas are: Power in resistive AC circuits The power relationships developed for dc circuits apply to ac circuits except you must use rms values in ac circuits when calculating power. 0 V 0 V For example, the dc and the ac sources produce the same power to the bulb: 120 V dc 170 V p = 120 V rms
PowerPoint Presentation: Assume a sine wave with a peak value of 40 V is applied to a 100 W resistive load. What power is dissipated? Power in resistive AC circuits Example Solution V rms = 0.707 x V p = 0.707 x 40 V = 28.3 V 8 W 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Frequently dc and ac voltages are together in a waveform. They can be added algebraically, to produce a composite waveform of an ac voltage “riding” on a dc level. Superimposed dc and ac voltages 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Alternators are ac generators. Utility companies use 3-phase alternators and deliver all three phases to industrial customers. A simplified 3-phase alternator is illustrated. Alternators Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3 Neutral 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: In vehicles, alternators generate ac, which is converted to dc for operating electrical devices and charging the battery. A basic vehicle alternator is illustrated. AC is more efficient to produce and can be easily regulated, hence it is generated and converted to dc by diodes. Alternators The output is taken from the rotor through the slip rings. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: There are two major classifications of ac motors. These are the induction motor and the synchronous motor . Both types use a rotating field in the stator windings. AC Motors Induction motors work because current is induced in the rotor by the changing current in the stator. This current creates a magnetic field that reacts with the moving field of the stator, which develops a torque and causes the rotor to turn. Synchronous motors have a magnet for the rotor. In small motors, this can be a permanent magnet, which keeps up with the rotating field of the stator. Large motors use an electromagnet in the rotor, with external dc supplied to generate the magnetic field. 2/18/2013 RIT

PowerPoint Presentation: Triangular and sawtooth waves Triangular and sawtooth waveforms are formed by voltage or current ramps (linear increase/decrease) Triangular waveforms have positive-going and negative-going ramps of equal duration. The sawtooth waveform consists of two ramps, one of much longer duration than the other. 2/18/2013 RIT
PowerPoint Presentation: Harmonics All repetitive non-sinusoidal waveforms are composed of a fundamental frequency (repetition rate of the waveform) and harmonic frequencies . Odd harmonics are frequencies that are odd multiples of the fundamental frequency. Even harmonics are frequencies that are even multiples of the fundamental frequency. 2/18/2013 RIT
