Electromagnetic Induction
We have studied that moving charges or current produces magnetic field. Then normally we get
a doubt whether the converse of this is also true? Does nature permit such a symmetrical
relation? Two physicists Micheal Faraday and Josheph Henry demonstrated the fact that
changing magnetic fields and electric currents with the help of the following simple experiments.

If we bring a magnet near a coil connected with a


galvanometer, the galvanometer shows deflection indicating N S
flow of current in the coil. This current flow as long as the
magnet is moving, i.e. the magnetic flux through the coil is
changing. Once the magnet becomes stationary, the current
stops.

If we take two coils wound on an iron cylinder, one fitted with a


battery and a switch, the other fitted with a galvanometer, when S

switch is closed, current increases from zero to its maximum 2

value. During this brief time, the galvanometer deflects


showing flow of current. The changing currents in coil (1) gives 1
rise to a changing magnetic field which induces an emf and a
G
current in the coil (2). This phenomenon of inducing electricity
by changing magnetic field is known as electromagnetic
induction.

(emf) is induced in the loop. It lasts as long as the magnetic flux changes.

Lenz's law
It states that the polarity of the induced e.m.f. and the       
direction of induced current is such that it opposes the very B C
      
cause which produces it. Consider the figure shown. A
      
rectangular loop ABCD is being pulled out of the magnetic B V
      
field directed into the plane of the paper and perpendicular
      
to the plane of the paper. As the loop is dragged out of the A D
field the flux associated with the loop which is directed into       

the plane of the paper decreases.

The induced current will flow in the loop in the sense to oppose the decreasing of this flux. For
this to happen magnetic field due to induced current in the loop must be directed into the plane
of the paper. Hence the current in the loop must flow in the clockwise sense.

Eddy currents: If a metal plate, e.g. copper is passed through a
magnetic field (see figure). During entry into the field and exit from x x x x
the field, the magnetic flux through a loop (Consider an arbitrary loop x x x x
as shown in the figure) changes. This change in flux cause current to x x x x
x x x x
be set up in the loop. There may be many such loops and currents
will flow through them. These are called eddy currents.
Eddy currents flow in many loops in a plate and cause heating. This thermal energy is produced
by conversion of kinetic energy and thus the plate slows down. This is called electromagnetic
damping.

To avoid eddy currents, slots are cut in the plate due to which the flow of eddy current is broken.

To reduce the losses due to eddy currents, conducting parts are made
in large number of thin layers , separated by lacqueran insulator.
These are called laminations. These break paths of eddy currents.

Self Induction
A changing current in a circuit causes a change in the magnetic flux associated with itself, which
induces an opposing e.m.f. in it. The net magnetic flux linked with itself is proportional to the
current in the loop.

Where L is a constant called coefficient of selfinduction or self inductance. Also e.m.f induced
di
in loop is  =  L
dt
The induced emf in case of self inductance opposes the change in the current. Physically it is
analogous to inertia in mechanics.

Self inductance of an ideal solenoid


For a solenoid of length  and crosssectional area A having number of turns N, the flux linked is
given by N, where  is the flux linked by each turn.
 N = nBA (n = N / )
2
The magnetic induction of a solenoid is given by B = 0nI  N = 0n AI
But, N =LI  L = 0n2A.
If the inside of a solenoid is filled with a material of relative magnetic permeability r (e.g. soft
iron)
then, L(r) = r 0 n2A
Self inductance of a coil depends on its geometry and on r of the medium inside it.
Note: When a current flows from a to b through a resistor, Vab a
a
is always positive; the potential is higher at a than b.
When a current flows from a to b through an inductor i R
i L
of negligible resistance, Vab is positive for an
increasing current, negative for a decreasing current,
and zero for a constant current. b

Vab =iR Vab =L(di/dt)

current is changing through it?

And as here I is decreasing (dI/dt) is negative.

Note : Proceeding in the same way as in self inductance the mutual inductance M of solenoid of

Exercise 6. Is it possible to have mutual inductance without self inductance? What


about selfinductance without mutual inductance?

Illustration 18. A solenoid S1 is placed inside another solenoid S2


as shown in the figure. The radii of the inner and S2
S1
the outer solenoids are r1 and r2 respectively and
the number of turns per unit length are n1 and n2
respectively. Consider a length  of each solenoid,
calculate the mutual inductance between them.

Solution: Suppose a current i is passed through the inner solenoid S1. A magnetic field B
= 0 n1i is produced inside S1 whereas the field outside it is zero. The flux
through each turn of S2 is, B r12 = (0 n1i)  r12

R  L Circuit
Growth of current in an inductor
When current is allowed through an inductor the growing current induces an e.m.f. which
opposes the growth of current in the inductor. When the switch is connected to the terminal 1,
the current grows in the inductor.

Time constant
It measures the rapidity with which the final state or the steady state is approached and may be
defined as the time in which the steady state would have been reached if the current were
allowed to increase at the initial rate.

Decay of current in an inductor


As the switch is turned off, i.e. the emf is disconnected the current decays in the inductor through
the resistor. It decays as the switch is turned to 2.

Note: It is important not to confuse with the behavior of resistor and inductors where energy is
concerned. Energy flows into a resistor whenever a current passes through it, whether the
current is steady or varying and this energy is dissipated in the form of heat. By contrast, energy
flows into an ideal, zero resistance inductor only when the current in the inductor increases. This
energy is not dissipated; it is stored in the inductor and released when the current decreases.
When a steady current flows through an inductor, there is no energy flow, in or out. This energy
is associated with magnetic field of the inductor. If the field is in vacuum, the magnetic energy

Solution: The induced emf in the rod causes a current to flow counter clockwise in the
circuit. Because of this current in the rod, it experiences a force to the left due
to the magnetic field. In order to pull the rod to the right with constant speed, the
force must be balanced by the puller.

ALTERNATING CURRENT
Voltage and Currents in AC Circuits
Up to now we have considered voltage source and current in one direction only. In many cases
we come across situations where the direction of current changes with time and the source
provides voltage varying with time. One such case is when voltage and current vary like a sine
function with time. These are called alternating voltage (a.c. voltage) and alternating current
(a.c. current). Electricity supply provided at our homes and offices fall in this category. Main
advantage of using this a.c. voltage and a.c. current is that a.c. voltage can easily be converted
to lower or higher value by use of transformers and these can be economically transmitted over
long distances.

Mean Value of Voltage and Current


The mean value of sinusoidal current or voltage in one complete cycle is zero. For half cycle,
the mean value can be found as given below.

Exercise 8. What is the value of current measured by a hot wire ammeter attached to
a.c. supply (peak value, rms value or mean value)?

Impedance
In any circuit the ratio of the effective voltage to the effective current is defined as the
impedance Z of the circuit. Its unit is ohm.
Phasors and phasor diagrams
In the study of A.C. circuits, we shall come across alternating voltage and currents which have
the same frequency but differ in phase with each other. It is found that the study of A.C. circuits
becomes simple, if alternating currents and voltages are treated as rotating vectors or more
correctly as 'phasors'. The phase angle between the two quantities is also represented in the
vector diagram.

A diagram representing alternating voltage and current as vectors with the phase angle between
them is known as phasor diagram.

2. When L < , it follows that tan is negative, i.e.  is negative. Hence in such a case,
C
voltage lags behind the current.

3. When L = , it follows that tan is zero, i.e.  is zero. Hence in such a case, current and
C

other words, the LCRseries circuit will behave as a purely resistive circuit. Due to the
minimum value of impedance, the current in LCRseries circuit will be maximum. This
condition is known as resonance.

If R, L and C are constant, and the frequency f of the applied

as shown in figure. At first the current is very small, increases

It is interesting to note that before resonance the current

resonance it lags behind the emf. Series resonant circuit is
also called acceptor circuit.

dissipate power. Physically a choke coil is a coil of insulated copper wire which offers a high
reactance (L) to A.C. (but a low D.C. resistance), thus reducing the A.C. appreciably without the
loss of energy.

The inductance 'L' of the choke coils is quite large on account of the large number of turns and
the high permeability of iron core, while the resistance R is very small. Thus cos   0, therefore
the power absorbed by the coil is extremely small. Thus the choke coil reduces current without
any appreciable loss of energy. The wastage of energy is only due to the hysteresis loss in soft
iron core. Eddy current loss is reduced by laminating the soft iron core.

An AC generator is a machine which converts mechanical energy to electrical energy based on


electromagnetic induction.

Principle:
When the magnetic flux through a closed loop changes, it induces an emf in the coil. It lasts as
long as the change in flux continues. A coil forming a closed loop is rotated in a magnetic field
and change in flux due to rotation of coil produces induced emf.

Construction:
1. Armature: Armature is a rectangular coil. It consists of a large no. of turns of insulated
copper wire wound over a soft iron core. The soft iron core is used to increase the magnetic flux.

2. Field Magnet: A strong electromagnet is provided with a magnetic field of the order of
12 tesla. It has concave north and south poles. The armature rotates between these poles.

3. Slip Rings: These are two hollow metallic rings. Ends


of the armature coil are connected to these two rings R1
B1
and R2 separately. These provide moving contact hence R1

these are called slip rings.


R2 B2

4. Brushes: Graphite brushes B1 and B2 keep contact with slip rings R1  R2 and pass on current
from the armature coil to the external resistance load.

Working:
As the coil rotates between the N S poles, magnetic flux linked with the coil changes. When
normal to the coil area is parallel to the magnetic field lines, flux through it is maximum but rate
of change of flux is minimum hence induced emf is zero.

In the position where normal to the coil area is perpendicular to the magnetic field lines, rate of
change of flux is maximum as coil wire move perpendicular the field lines. Hence at this
position, induced emf is maximum.

The direction of induced emf can be determined by Fleming’s right hand rule.
After half the rotation, the directions of current changes as the motion of arms are just opposite
to the motion in first half. Applying Flemings right hand rule, the current direction is reversed,

TRANSFORMER
A transformer is an electrical device used to
convert AC current from low voltage & high current Secondry coil
to high voltage and low current and viceversa.
Primary coil P S
~ Es
EP NP Ns
A transformer which increases the ac voltage is
called step up transformer and which decreases the
AC voltage is called step down transformer.
NP. = No. of turns, of primary coil
Ns = No. of turns of secondary coil
Principle:
A transformer works on the principle of mutual induction. When two coils are indirectely
coupled, change in current or magnetic flux in one coil induces an emf in the other coil.

Construction:
Two coils Primary P and secondary S are wound around a soft iron core. A.C. input is applied to
the primary coil and A.C. output is taken at the secondary coil. Laminated soft iron sheets are
used in core to minimise eddy current and increase magnetic flux.

Step up transformers: Number of turns in secondary coil are more than those in the primary
coil
(Ns > Np). It converts a low voltage high current to a high voltage low current.

Step down transformer: Number of turns in secondary coil are less than those in the primary
coil. It converts a high voltage, low current to a low voltage, high current.

Working
When primary coil is connected to AC source, the magnetic flux linked with the primary changes.
The magnetic flux of primary is passed through the secondary through the iron core. Therefore
magnetic flux through secondary also changes. Due to the change in magnetic flux the induced
emf is produced across the ends of secondary coil.
Np=no of turns in primary
Ns=no of turns in secondary
Ep=voltage across primary
Es=voltage across secondary

Energy Losses in a Transformer:


Various types of losses are
(a) Flux losses:  Flux of primary does not get 100 % linked up with secondary coil.
(b) Copper losses:  Energy lost as heat due to resistance in copper coils.
(c) Iron Losses:  Loss as heat in iron core due to eddy current losses.
(d) Hysteresis losses: Energy lost due to repeated magetization and demagnetization of iron
core.
(e) Humming losses: Due to alternating current, the iron core vibrates producing humming
noise. Some energy is lost in this.

SUMMARY

Electromagnetic induction: The production of electromotive force in a conductor when there is


change in the magnetic flux linkage with a coil or when there is a relative motion of the
conductor across a magnetic field.

 
Magnetic flux: Magnetic flux through an area dS in a magnetic field B is
 
B =  B.dS

Faradays Law: When the flux of a magnetic field through a loop changes, an emf is induced in
the loop which is given by
d
= 
dt
 
where  =  B.dS is the flux through the loop.
This emf lasts as long as the magnetic field changes.

Lenz’s law: Lenz’s law states that the polarity of the induced emf and the direction of the
induced current is such that it opposes the change that has induced it.

Motional emf: When a conducting rod of length  moves with a constant velocity v in a
magnetic field B such that B, v and  are mutually perpendicular then the induced emf is

 = Bv
This is called motional emf. If the circuit is completed the direction of the current can be worked
out by Lenz’s law.

Induced Electric field: A time varying magnetic field induces an electric field. If a conductor is
placed in this field, an induced emf is produced.

 =  E.d 

or,  E.d   

Eddy current: Changing magnetic field induces currents in closed loops of irregular shapes in a
conductor. These are called eddy currents. These dissipate thermal energy at the cost of kinetic
energy, thus causing electromagnetic damping.

Self induction: A current carrying loop produces a magnetic flux through the area
 = Li where L is self inductance of the loop.
If current changes in the loop the induced emf  is given by

Prob 2. Shown in the figure is a small circular loop that is


coaxial with the bigger circular loop. If the slider moves

from A to B, then
(A) current flow in both the loops will be opposite. 1 R B
(B) clockwise current in loop 1 and anticlockwise current A
in loop 2 flow.
(C) no current flows in loop 2.
(D) clockwise current flows in loop 2.

Sol. When the slider moves towards B, the resistance of the circuit (bigger loop)
decreases. Therefore, the current in the bigger loop increases. The increasing
current results in increasing flux (  i) linked by the smaller coil. Consequently,
induced emf will be generated in the smaller loop causing an induced current so as
to oppose the increase in flux. Therefore, the current flows anticlockwise in the inner
loop. Hence (B) is correct.

(A) Clockwise (B) Anticlockwise d
(C) Zero (D) All of these

Sol. When the loop is drawn into the magnetic field, the area of the portion of the loop in
the magnetic field will increase. That means, the flux linkage increases. Therefore,
an (anticlockwise) current is induced in the loop so as to oppose the change. When
the loop is fully inside. When the loop emerges out of the magnetic field the flux
decrease, following the previous argument, the direction of induced in it will be
eversed (clockwise).
Hence (D) is correct.

Prob 5. A conducting bar pulled with a constant speed v on a smooth B


conducting rail. The region has a steady magnetic field of induction

the rate of heat dissipation will be

The electrical power = P = i2R =

Since, v is doubled, the electrical power, becomes four times. Since heat dissipation
per second is proportional to electrical power, it becomes four fold.
Hence (C) is correct.

Prob 11. When a magnet is released from rest along the axis of a hollow S

(A) The direction of induced current in the cylinder is anticlockwise as
seen from the above
(B) the magnet moves with an acceleration less than g = 9.8 m/s2
(C) the cylinder gets heated.
(D) the magnet attains a terminal speed inside the cylinder if the cylinder is very
long.

Sol. Initially the current induced in the hollow conductor is zero because
the magnet was at rest. When the magnet falls, due to the variation N
of magnetic flux, induced current develop in the hollow conductor so N
as to resist the cause of increment of flux; that means the velocity of
the magnet is resisted. S
In the other word we can say that the magnet is retarded before entering into the
hollow conducting cylinder. Consequently its acceleration will be less than g because
magnetic force opposes the gravitational force, equally after sometime when the

(B) Emf is induced but no current flows if the loop is a

(C) Emf is induced and induced current flows in the loop if the loop is made of copper
(D) If the loop moves along Z axis with constant velocity, no current flows in it.

Sol. If the loop rotates about Z axis, there is no variation of flux linkage. Therefore, no
emf is induced. Consequently, no current flows in the loop
When rotated about y axis, its flux linkage changes. Therefore an emf is induced.
Since the loop is a fiber it is non conducting. Therefore induced current is zero.
If the loop is made of copper, it is conductive therefore induced current is set up.
If the loop moves along the Z axis variation of flux linkage is zero. Therefore the
induced emf and current will be equal to zero.
Hence (A), (B), (C) and (D) all are correct.
