I have found myself stuck trying to understand
parts of AC generation so I am writing to you to
ask if you or anyone you know could possible
answer my question.I am finding it hard to
understand each magnet poles magnetic effect of
the electrons in the coil, how do the electrons
decide which way to go inside the coil? So as a
guess I would say :- in an alternator before the
coil even spins, the magnets lines of force
polarizes the two ends of the coil, leaving one
end of the coil positively charged and the other
negatively charged, then as the coil is spun 180
degrees, the electrons rush to the other side of
the coil which switches the polarity.
Does voltage exist between the two terminals?
That potential difference in the generator is
two sides of the coil, but how is this
established? My understanding of potential
difference tells me that for there to be a
difference in potential there has to be un-even
amount of electrons between two points, where one
point possesses too many, and the other possessing
too little, thus there is a potential difference
between the two, in which the electrons will
desire to travel from the higher potential to the
lower potential point.
I'd really appreciate if you could clear this
up for me in the most basic language possible.
Thanks so much in advance.
