What is Electric Current?
Electric current is the defined as the rate of flow of negative charges of the conductor. In other words, the continuous flow of the electrons in an electric circuit is called an electric current. The conducting material consists of a large number of free electrons which move from one atom to the other at random.

Three Phase Systems
The rotor flux of an alternating current generator induces sinusoidal e.m.f.s in the conductors forming the stator winding. In a single-phase machine these stator conductors occupy slots over most of the circumference of the stator core.
The e.m.f.s that are induced in the conductors are not in phase and the net winding…[Read more]
