Understand how electricity is generated

Fundamental concept & Mathematical Representation of AC generation

Language: English

Instructor: Dr. Jignesh Makwana

Why this course?


Course is designed to understand generation of electricity in most simplified way.

Chapter 1 explains basic concept of electricity generation without involving any mathematics or graphical theories.

Chapter 2 deals with methematical approach. Apply your understanding of Faraday's law and Lenz's law to derive  magnitude & frequency of induced emf. Course is design to understand  mathematics and its importance in generation of electricity. Course is  very useful for the 1st year students of Engineering & Technology.

Course Summary

Who this course is for:

  • I  personally recommends all electrical engineering students to go through  this course if having any doubt about how electricity is generated.

  • Course  is very important for 1st year students of electrical, computer and  electronics engineering branch. However all engineer students must have  understanding of how electricity is generated.

  • Intellectual students from 10th, 11th and 12th science should also enroll for the course.

What you'll learn

  • What are the different forms of energy? What is Law of Energy Conservation?

  • What is faraday’s law?  & What is lenz’s law?

  • How to generate emf of desired magnitude & desired frequency?

  • Why shape of generated waveform is sinusoidal?

  • What is magnetic field?

  • How practical generator differs from ideal theoretical generator concept?


  • Knowledge of basic science may help understanding the course better
