The electrodynamometer type instrument is a transfer instrument. A transfer instrument is one which is calibrated with a d.c. source and used without any. An electrodynamic type instrument consists of Two Fixed Coil, flux is used in Electrodynamic or Electrodynamometer type instrument. This means that the torque in electrodynamometer instruments must have . Electrodynamometer type voltmeters are the most accurate type of.

Electrodynamometer i nstruments are capable of serving as transfer instruments.

Controlling torque is provided by two control springs. At equilibrium the controlling torque and deflecting torques are equal, hence. But this deflecting torque is controlled by the spring. The value of the current in the pressure coil is very small.

Electrodynamometer type Instruments – Construction and Operation

It consists of counter weights and pointer. Electrovynamometer can be seen that deflecting torque depends upon the multiplication of instantaneous value of current and rate of change of mutual inductance between the fixed and moving coil.

Errors may be due connections. Hence external magnetic field can interact with the operation field to cause change in the deflection, causing the error.

So shielding is done to protect it from stray magnetic fields.

Errors caused by vibration of moving system. Thus as it is a transfer instrument, there is direct connection between a.

As the current through the moving coil shall not exceed mA, therefore moving coil is shunted by suitable resistance to increase the range of such ammeter.

The instrument whose working depends on the reaction between the magnetic field of moving and fixed coils is known as the Electrodynamo-meter Electrodnyamometer.


Electrodynamic Type Instrument – Construction and Working Principle | Electrical Concepts

Hence moving coil is connected across the voltage and thus the current flowing through this coil is always proportional to the voltage. Therefore, Deflecting Torque in Ammeter. For understanding the working principle, first ask yourself what will happen if we connect a PMMC instrument for the measurement of AC quantity? Even earth’s magnetic field considerably affects the reading. There are two insturments of coils present in the electrodynamometer.

Let the currents passing through fixed and moving coils be I 1 and I 2 respectively. This is great one to see your blog last time I see same ijstruments to my friend constraction building in chennai. Fixed Coil The fixed coil is divided into two equal parts and these are connected in series with the load, therefore the load current will flow through these coils. Due to moment of inertia of moving system, the pointer will not follow rapidly changing alternating torque and will fail to show any reading.

Laboratory standard instruments are usually contained in polished wooden or metal cases which are rigid. The electrodynamometer instrument can be represented by an equivalent circuit as shown in the Fig. If the frequency were very low, the pointer would swing back and forth around the zero points.

And the interaction of these two magnetic fields deflects the pointer of the instrument. Limited of current flows through the moving coil so as to avoid heating. Electrodynamomefer can be seen that, the fixed coil and moving coil are connected in series and hence carries the same current. It is done by enclosing electrodynwmometer a casing high permeability alloy. The coils are usually electrodynamomerer.

Change in stored energy.

Please keep doing this. Therefore it becomes very important to protect the instrument from the effect of external magnetic field. Because of this change of magnetic flux, the torque on moving coil will instguments change in each half cycle of AC quantity to be measured.

When current passes through the fixed and moving coils, both coils produce the magnetic fields.

Electrodynamometer Type Wattmeter

The electrodynamometer electrodyjamometer can be used dlectrodynamometer a voltmeter by connecting the fixed and moving coils in series with a high non-inductive resistance.

Where, x is the angle. Fixed coils are wound with fine wire for using as voltmeter, while for ammeters and wattmeters it is wound with heavy wire.

If metallic former is used, then it would induce eddy currents in it. The Electrodynamometer Wattmeter has two types of coils; fixed and the moving coil.

To reduce the effect of stray magnetic field, the shields must be used for the instruments. It shows that the deflecting torque is proportional to the product of currents flowing in the fixed and the moving coil.
