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 Wattmeter

This makes the system heavy reducing torque to weight ratio. Now let the applied value insyruments voltage across the pressure coil be Assuming the electrical resistance to the pressure coil be very high hence we can neglect reactance with respect to its resistance.

From the principle of conversation of energy. This causes the error in the reading. Let us assume an infinitesimally small time dt for the sake of calculation of change in stored energy. Circuit Globe All about Electrical and Electronics. The current and voltage of the fixed and moving coil generate the two magnetic fields.

Errors due electrodynampmeter stray magnetic field.

The deflection produced in the instrument is proportional to the product of currents flowing in the fixed and the moving coil. So in order to limit the current we have connected the high value resistor in series with the moving coil. Fixed Coil The fixed coil is divided into two equal parts and these are connected in series electrodynamometef the load, therefore the load current will flow through these coils.

Torque Equation in Electrodynamometer Instruments | Electrical Concepts

The working principle of the Electrodynamometer Wattmeter is very simple and easy. Gravity controlled system cannot be employed because there will be appreciable amount of errors. The electrodynamometer instrument can be represented by an equivalent circuit as shown in the Fig. However, for an ordinary meter, the inertia is so great that on power frequencies the pointer electrodynammoeter not go very far in either direction but merely stays vibrates slightly around zero.


These springs act as instrumejts to the moving coil. Pabitha Pabi June 28, at 5: Thus the instantaneous deflecting torque is given as. Some of the above input energy to electrodynamometer instruments are stored in the form of magnetic energy in the coil while rest is converted into mechanical energy of moving coil.

Sometimes a suspension may be used, in case a high accuracy is desired. Hence the instrument is often used as a calibration instrument. So shielding is done to protect it from stray magnetic fields.

Newer Post Older Post Home. This means that as the direction of instrumentts field changes, the direction of current in moving coil also changes. The fixed coil connects in series with the circuit whose power consumption tyep to be measured.

Let us see its operation on a. This means that the torque in electrodynamometer instruments must have a finite value and unidirectional for AC and DC quantity unlike PMMC instruments. The PMMC instrument cannot be sued on electrodynamojeter.

Electrodynamometer type Instruments – Construction and Operation

It shows that the deflecting torque is proportional to the product of currents flowing in the fixed and the moving coil. This textbook ” Electrical and Electronics Measurements by S. Moving coils are also air-cored. If, however, we were to reverse the direction of the flux each time the current through the movable coil reverses, a unidirectional torque would be produced for both positive and negative halves of the electrodynamomete.

Electrodynamometer type Instruments – Construction and Operation. We have an idea of the working principle of e lectrodynamometer instrument by taking up a permanent magnet moving coil instrument and considering how it would behave on a. Hence moving coil electrodynamo,eter connected across the voltage and thus the current flowing through this coil is always proportional to the voltage.

It consists of following parts. Advantages of Electrodynamometer Type Wattmeter Following are the advantages of electrodynamometer type wattmeter and they are written as follows: Your email address will not be published.

The changes in the frequency causes to change self inductances of moving coil and fixed coil. The deflection of the pointer is directly proportional to the power flows through it. To provide magnetic shielding, normally electrodynamic type instrument is enclosed in a high permeability alloy.

An electrodynamometer type instrument is a moving coil instrument in which the operating field is produced by another coil which is fixed. The field produced by fixed coil is proportional to the load current while the field produced by the moving coil is proportional to the voltage.

Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not typpe published. Air friction damping is provided by aluminium vanes attached to the spindle at the bottom.

Electridynamometer can must be taken while handling them. Thus the torque on the moving coil will not change rather it will be unidirectional. The current cannot be made very high because it may cause excessive heating of springs.

Metallic former shall never be used as it will lead eddy current generation due to changing flux. The necessity for the AC calibration of moving iron instruments as well as another type of instruments which cannot be correctly calibrated requires the use of a transfer type of instrument.
