Hello friends, I hope all of you are fine. In today’s tutorial, we are gonna have a look at the** Power and Torque in Synchronous Generator **and their relationship. The synchronous generator is an apparatus that alters mechanical energy into electrical energy. To move its shaft there are many sources like steam turbines, petrol engines or water turbines that provided mechanical energy to the generator. These sources of mechanical power are named as a **prime mover.**

It does not matter which prime mover we are using; the main thing is that it should rotate the rotor at a constant speed irrespective of the variation in the power demand. If the prime mover does not deliver the continuous speed, then the frequency of the power generated by the generator will not be the same. In today’s post, we will have a look at the relation between torque and power of the synchronous generator. so let’s get started with the *power and torque in the synchronous generator.*

## Power and Torque in Synchronous Generator

- The mechanical power provided by the prime mover to the synchronous generator does not transform into electrical power completely.
- The mechanical power that does not convert into electric energy is called loss power.
- The
**power flow diagram of synchronous generators**is described below.

- In the power flow diagram of a synchronous generator, The power provided by the prime mover to the generator is.

P_{in} = T_{app}w_{m}

- Whereas, this input power converted to electricity is given here.

P_{con }= T_{ind}w_{m}

P_{con} = 3E_{A}I_{A}cosγ

- In this equation, the E
_{A}is the internally generated voltage of the generator I_{A}is the armature current, γ is the angle between them. - The power that does not convert into electric energy is wasted in the form of core losses that are eddy current and hysteresis loss, iron loss, windage, and friction losses.

**Power of the Synchronous Generator**

- let find the
**power equation of synchronous generator,** - The out power of the generator that is electrical power can be written as.

P_{out} =√3 V_{T}I_{L }Cosø

- It can be written in phase form.

P_{out} =3 V_{ø}I_{A }Cosø—-(1)

- The reactive power of the generator can be defined as

Q_{out} =√3 V_{T}I_{L }Sinø

- It can also be written in phase form.

Q_{out} =3 VøI_{A }Sinø

- As the Xs>>R
_{A}, so if we neglect the armature resistance (R_{A}) then a very valuable expression can b finds to define the P_{out}of the synchronous generator. - To find this expression we study the given phasor diagram.

- It is the simple phasor diagram of the generator without the armature resistance.
- From a diagram, you can see that the bc portion has the value of E
_{A}sinor X_{s}I_{A}cosø. - so, we have

I_{A}cosø = E_{A}sinδ/X_{s}

- If we put this expression in equation (1) then we have.

P=3 Vø E_{A}sinδ/X_{s}——- (2)

- As there is no resistance in equation (2) so there is no loss in the generator and this equation is for input and the output of the generator.
- From equation (2) we can observe that the output power of the synchronous generator depends on the angle (δ) between the internal generated voltage E
_{A}and the phase (terminal) voltage of the generator. - The angle (δ) is also called the torque angle of the
**synchronous generator.** - The extreme power that can generator produce will be given when the value of torque angle (δ) is ninety degrees.
- When δ =90
^{0}, sin =1, so the power will be.

P_{max} =3V_{ø}E_{A}/X_{s} —- (3)

- The maximum power given in this equation is known as the
**static stability limit**of the generator. - Usually, practically no generator reaches this limit.
- If we observe given below equation again.

P_{out} =3 V_{ø}I_{A }Cosø—-(1)

Q_{out} =3 V_{ø}I_{A }Sinø

P=3 Vø E_{A}sinδ/X_{s}——- (2)

- Let’s suppose that the V
_{ø}in these three equations is constant than the outputs of the active powers are directly proportionate to the I_{A }Cosø and the E_{A }Sinø and the reactive power (Q) is proportionate to the I_{A }Sinø. - These factors are beneficial for the construction of the phasor diagram of the generator when the load varies.

## Torque in Synchronous Generator

- As we know the torque in the synchronous machine is given as.

T_{ind} =KB_{R} x B_{S}

T_{ind} =KB_{R} x B_{net}—-(d)

- The magnitude of the equation (d) can be written as.

T_{ind} =KB_{R}B_{net}sinδ

- In this equation the δ is the angle among the field of the rotor (B
_{R}) and the net field of the generator (B_{net}), it is known as the torque angle. - Another equation for the torque can be calculated by this equation.

P=3 Vø E_{A}sinδ/X_{s}

- As we know that the converted power (P
_{conv}) = T_{ind}w_{m}, so the induced generator torque or synchronous generator is.

T_{ind}= 3 Vø E_{A}sinδ/w_{m}X_{s} ——(f)

- Equation
**‘**f’ gives the value of the torque in the form of electric numbers but the given below equation gives the torque in the form of magnetic terms.

T_{ind} =KB_{R}B_{net}sinδ

**What is the relationship between torque and power in a synchronous generator?**

- As we know power equation
**P=(E×V×sine of torque angle)/(X)**. If the generator is operating in isolation increase in field current will increase E and V but the torque angle will not be changed. The increase E and V means high power output to load

**What is power in synchronous generator?**

- There are 3 phases in 3 phase synchronous generator. if there is resistance in the circuit, the power is
**V =IR**. - For impedance multiply IR with the power factor to get the power

**What is the relationship between power and torque?**

- The object performing rotational motion faces torque. Torque = force x radius. Hence,
**Power = torque x angular velocity**

**What is the principle of synchronous generator?**

- Synchronous generators work in the principle of
**Faraday laws of electromagnetic induction**. - electromagnetic induction defines EMF induced in an armature coil if it rotation in a uniform magnetic field.

**What is the relationship between torque and current in generator?**

- For a generator with a fixed stator field, the output current is
**proportional to the torque**. For accurate generator P=IV=ωτ P = I V = ω τ . Both sides are in units of energy

**What is synchronous torque?**

- synchronous torque dip or “locking torque is vernier reluctance torque for slotting on both sides of the air gap that causes to pull of stator and
**rotor teeth together in group**

**What is pull-out torque in synchronous generator?**

- It is the highest torque that a synchronous motor can produce without a pulling step.
- If a synchronous motor is loaded, rotors fall back with some angle called load angle.
- The stator and rotor magnetic rotate at synchronous speed despite some load is applied on the rotor.

Good web site you’ve got here.. It’s hard to find excellent writing like yours

these days. I really appreciate individuals like you!

Take care!!

Thanks for the terrific information for us.

Thanks for discussing your ideas here. The other point is that any time a problem takes place with a laptop or computer motherboard, people should not go ahead and take risk of repairing that themselves for if it is not done correctly it can lead to permanent damage to all the laptop. It is almost always safe just to approach the dealer of any laptop for the repair of the motherboard. They have got technicians that have an expertise in dealing with pc motherboard complications and can get the right diagnosis and undertake repairs.

Good answers in return of this query with real arguments and explaining everything concerning that.
