Week 8 Faraday’s Law Inductance Energy The law states that the induced electromotive force or EMF in any closed circuit is equal to the time rate of change of the magnetic flux through the circuit: where ◦ Ɛ is the electromotive force (EMF) in Volts ◦ ΦB is the magnetic flux through the circuit in Webers The magnetic flux ΦB through a surface S, is defined by an integral over a surface: If the loop enters the field at a constant speed, the flux will increase linearly and EMF will be constant. What happens when the entire loop is in the field? A conducting rod of length L moves in the xdirection at a speed vax as show below. The wire cuts into a magnetic field B az. Calculate the induced EMF. Compute the total flux ΦB ΦB = B A = B L (xo + vt) Calculate the rate of change Ɛ = - dΦB/dt = - vBL Since the magnetic flux through the loop increases linearly the EMF induced in the loop must be constant. An EMF is induced on the rectangular loop of the generator. The loop of area A is rotating at an angular rate ω (rads). The magnetic field B is held constant. Assume B = Bo ax the square loop rotates so its normal unit vector is an = ax cos ωt + ay sin ωt Determine the flux as a function of time and the induced EMF Inductance is the property in an electrical circuit where a change in the current flowing through that circuit induces an EMF that opposes the change in current. The term 'inductance' was coined by Oliver Heaviside. It is customary to use the symbol L for inductance, possibly in honor of Heinrich Lenz. Other terms coined by Heaviside ◦ ◦ ◦ ◦ Conductance G Impedance Z Permeability μ Reluctance R The electric current produces a magnetic field and generates a total magnetic flux Φ acting on the circuit. This magnetic flux tends to act to oppose changes in the flux by generating an EMF that counters or tends to reduce the rate of change in the current. The ratio of the magnetic flux to the current is called the selfinductance which is usually simply referred to as the inductance of the circuit. Derive an expression for the inductance of a solenoid Since B = μNI/ℓ Φ = BA = μNIA/ℓ thus L = NΦ/I = μN2A/ℓ Derive an expression for the inductance of a toroid. Recall that B = μNI 2πr The pickup from an electric guitar captures mechanical vibrations from the strings and converts them to an electrical signal. The vibration from a string modulates the magnetic flux, inducing an alternating electric current. Taking the time derivative of the flux linkage λ = NΦ = Li yields =v This means that, for a steady applied voltage v, the current changes in a linear. Let the current through an inductor be i(t) = Io cos(ωt). Determine v(t) across the inductor. In practice, small inductors for electronics use may be made with air cores. For larger values of inductance and for transformers, iron is used as a core material. The relative permeability of magnetic iron is around 200. Here, L11 and L22 are the self-inductances of circuit one and circuit two, respectively. It can be shown that the other two coefficients are equal: L12 = L21 = M, where M is called the mutual inductance of the pair of circuits. Consider for example two circuits carrying the currents i1, i2. The flux linkages of circuits 1 and 2 are given by L12 = L21 = M Describe what will happen when the switch is on. The energy density of a magnetic field is u = B2 2μ The energy stored in a magnetic field is U = ½ LI2 In a certain region of space, the magnetic field has a value of 10-2 T, and the electric field has a value of 2x106 V/m.
