The Generation of Alternating Current
This learning object describes the production of an alternating current in a generator with a single-loop armature. An illustration of how a sine wave is produced is shown through animation.
Learners study how a circuit converts the AC output of a linear voltage differential transformer (LVDT) into variable DC voltage. It is recommended that learners view the learning object IAU7807, “The LVDT: A Linear Voltage Differential Transformer in Action” before going through this object.
