25 Simplified diagram of a three-phase ac generator. for ac generators, the field windings are mounted on the rotor and the armature windings on the stator. Today, most electric power is produced by synchronous generators that rotate at a constant speed (the synchronous speed). This speed is dictated by the operating frequency of the system and the machine structure. AC generators are also used that do not necessarily rotate at a fixed speed, such as those found in windmills (induction generators); these generators, however, account for only a small percentage of the power generated today.

E F is the internal voltage (phasor form) and Vt is the terminal voltage. between machines increases or oscillates for an extended period of time, the system is considered unstable. 17) governs the motion of the machine rotor. J is moment of inertia, δm is mechanical torque angle with respect to a rotating reference, ωm is shaft angular velocity, and Ta is the accelerating torque. Two factors that act as criteria for the stability of a generating unit are the angular swing of the machine during and following fault conditions, and the time it takes to clear the transient swing.

Because of the interactions among groups of magnetized atoms, losses are incurred as the frequency of the changing magnetic field is increased. Throughout the history of transformer development, the goal of the design engineer has been to increase permeability, saturation, and resistivity, while decreasing hysteresis losses. A variety of core materials, including silicon iron in various forms, have been used. 9) Where: E = efficiency in percent Pout = transformer power output in watts Pin = transformer power input in watts Losses in a transformer are the result of copper losses in the windings and core losses.
