• Simple operation
• Visible workings
• Easy to explain
This apparatus is designed to enable students to investigate the properties of
an AC Generator as used in a bicycle dynamo. A permanent magnet rotates inside
a coil of wire. As the field through the coil changes a current is induced in
the coil and this is brought out to two 4mm sockets. The unit is transparent
to show all the inner workings and is a convenient hand held device with a
direct drive (no gearing) to the rotating magnet. The output can be displayed
on a centre-zero moving coil voltmeter or oscilloscope. The output swings from
+ to - each revolution and is about 0.5V peak to peak, with the magnitude
varying with speed. Because of the geometry of the mechanism the output is not
a simple sine wave and if a PC oscilloscope is used to store the trace, the
waveform can be studied in more detail.
