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.

Thus we can write. In metal parts of the instrument the eddy current gets produced. This can cause frictional errors in the reading.

Electrodynamometer Wattmeter

The value of the current in the pressure coil is very small. 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.

Electrodynamometer type Instruments – Construction and Operation. Thus as it is a transfer instrument, there is direct connection between a. This makes the system heavy reducing torque to weight ratio. To provide electrodynamometrr shielding, normally electrodynamic type instrument is enclosed in a high permeability alloy. Thus temperature compensating resistors can be used in the precise instrument to eliminate the temperature errors.

Errors may electroddynamometer due to mutual inductance effects. Hence moving coil is connected across the voltage and thus the current flowing through this coil is always proportional to the voltage.


Electrodynamometer type instruments are used as a. Limited of current flows through the moving coil so as to avoid heating. They move in sector shaped chambers. The fixed coil is usually air-cored to avoid hysteresis effects when used on AC circuits.

This means that as the direction of magnetic field changes, the direction of current in moving coil also changes. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published. Now we will consider two cases. The moving coil is mounted on an aluminium spindle. Because of this change of magnetic flux, the torque on moving coil will also change in each half cycle of AC quantity to be measured. The changes in the frequency causes to change self inductances of moving coil and fixed coil.

Similar to moving iron instruments the operating field in electrodynamometer instrument is very weak. Electrodynamometer Instruments are widely used as an ammeter, voltmeter and wattmeter. Damping System Air friction damping is used, as eddy current damping will distort the weak operating magnetic field and thus it may leads to error.

Hnec metal parts should be kept as minimum as possible.

The electrodynamometer type instruments are often used in accurate a. 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. Thus to find the mechanical energy, we need to find the change in stored energy in onstruments magnetic field of the coil.


Therefore it becomes very important onstruments protect the instrument from the effect of external magnetic field.

The PMMC instrument cannot be sued on a. For using electrodynamometer instrument as a wattmeter to measure the power, the fixed coils acts as a current coil and must be connected in series with the load. Notify me when new comments are added. So in order to limit the current we have connected the high value resistor slectrodynamometer series with the moving coil.

Deflecting Torque in Ammeter. Your email address will not be published. The voltage across the pressure coil of the circuit is given as.

The moving coil is mounted on an aluminium spindle. Therefore, the direction of current in the moving coil is same as that in the fixed coil. Also it introduces increased frictional losses. Thus ideally the needle of PMMC instrument shall swing back and forth around zero position. Learn how your comment data is processed. Therefore we can write as.

These coils are air cored. The electrodynamometer type instrument is a transfer instrument.
