```Chapter 28: Alternating Current
Phasors and Alternating Currents
 Alternating current (AC current)
• Current which varies sinusoidally in time is called alternating current (AC)
as opposed to direct current (DC). One example of AC current source is a
coil of wire rotating with constant angular velocity in a magnetic field.
The symbol
~
is used to denote an AC source. In general a source
means either a source of alternating current or voltage.
  V sin wt for alternating voltage,V  voltageamplitude
i  I sin wt for alternating current,I  currentamplitude
• In the U.S. and Canada, commercial electric-power distribution system
uses a frequency of f = 60 Hz, corresponding to w = 377 rad/s. In much
of the rest of the world uses f = 50 Hz. In Japan, however, the country is
divided in two regions with f = 50 Hz and 60 Hz.

frequency w0 which makes the impedance Z purely resistive.

Power in Alternating Current Circuits
 Power
• The instantaneous power (for some frequency, w) delivered at time t is
given by:
P(t )  e (t ) I (t )  e m sin wt I m sin( wt   )
• The most useful quantity to consider here is not the instantaneous power
but rather the average power delivered in a cycle.
 P(t )  e m I m sin wt sin( wt   )
• To evaluate the average on the right, we first expand the sin(wt-) term.
Power in Alternating Current Circuits

• Expanding,

Transformers
 Transformers
• AC voltages can be stepped up or
stepped down by the use of
transformers.
The AC current in the primary circuit
creates a time-varying magnetic field
in the iron
e
iron
~
This induces an emf on the secondary
windings due to the mutual inductance of
the two sets of coils.
V1
V2
N

(primary)
N
2
(secondary)
• The iron is used to maximize the mutual inductance. We assume that the
entire flux produced by each turn of the primary is trapped in the iron.
Transformers
 Ideal transformer without a load
No resistance losses
All flux contained in iron
Nothing connected on secondary
The primary circuit is just an AC voltage
source in series with an inductor. The
change in flux produced in each turn is given by:
dturn V1

dt
N1
iron
e ~
V1
V2
N1
N2
(primary) (secondary)
• The change in flux per turn in the secondary
coil is the same as the change in flux per turn in the primary coil (ideal case).
The induced voltage appearing across the secondary coil is given by:
dturn N 2
V2  N 2

V1
dt
N1
• Therefore,
• N2 > N1  secondary V2 is larger than primary V1 (step-up)
• N1 > N2  secondary V2 is smaller than primary V1 (step-down)
• Note: “no load” means no current in secondary. The primary current,
termed “the magnetizing current” is small!
Transformers
 Ideal transformer with a load
What happens when we connect a resistive load
to the secondary coil?
Changing flux produced by primary coil induces
an emf in secondary which produces current I2
I2 
iron
e ~
V2
R
V1
V2
N1
(primary)
R
N2
(secondary)
This current produces a flux in the secondary coil
µ N2I2, which opposes the change in the original
flux -- Lenz’s law
This induced changing flux appears in the primary
circuit as well; the sense of it is to reduce the emf in
the primary, to “fight” the voltage source. However,
V1 is assumed to be a voltage source. Therefore, there
must be an increased current I1 (supplied by the voltage
source) in the primary which produces a flux µ N1I1
which exactly cancels the flux produced by I2.

account of the phase difference between the voltage and the
current. In general you can write:
Pavg  erms Irms cos
For an inductor P = 0 because the phase difference between current through
the inductor and voltage across the inductor is 90 degrees
