UNIT1 : D. C. Circuits
A DC circuit (Direct Current circuit) is an electrical circuit that consists of any combination of
constant voltage sources, constant current sources, and resistors. In this case, the circuit voltages
and currents are constant, i.e., independent of time. More technically, a DC circuit has no
memory. That is, a particular circuit voltage or current does not depend on the past value of anycircuit voltage or current. This implies that the system of equations that represent a DC circuit do
not involve integrals or derivatives.
If a capacitor and/or inductor is added to a DC circuit, the resulting circuit is not, strictly
speaking, a DC circuit. However, most such circuits have a DC solution. This solution gives the
circuit voltages and currents when the circuit is in DC steady state. More technically, such a
circuit is represented by a system of differential equations. The solution to these equations
usually contain a time varying or transient part as well as constant or steady state part. It is this
steady state part that is the DC solution. There are some circuits that do not have a DC solution.
Two simple examples are a constant current source connected to a capacitor and a constantvoltage source connected to an inductor.
It is common to refer to a circuit that is powered by a DC voltage source such as a battery or
the output of a DC power supply as a DC circuit even though what is meant is that the circuit is
DC powered.
Electric Current:
Electric current means, depending on the context, a flow of electric charge (a phenomenon) or
the rate of flow of electric charge (a quantity). This flowing electric charge is typically carried by
moving electrons, in a conductor such as wire; in an electrolyte, it is instead carried by ions, and,
in a plasma, by both. The SI unit for measuring the rate of flow of electric charge is the ampere,
which is charge flowing through some surface at the rate of one coulomb per second. Electric
current is measured using an ammeter.
Current:
The flow of charge is called the current and it is the rate at which electric charges pass though a
conductor. The charged particle can be either positive or negative. In order for a charge to flow,
it needs a push (a force) and it is supplied by voltage, or potential difference. The charge flows
from high potential energy to low potential energy.
Current, I=V/R
where the symbol I to represent the quantity current.

Electromotive force(E.M.F):
Electromotive Force is, the voltage produced by an electric battery or generator in an electrical
circuit or, more precisely, the energy supplied by a source of electric power in driving a unit
charge around the circuit. The unit is the volt. A difference in charge between two points in a
material can be created by an external energy source such as a battery. This causes electrons tomove so that there is an excess of electrons at one point and a deficiency of electrons at a second
point. This difference in charge is stored as electrical potential energy known as emf. It is the
emf that causes a current to flow through a circuit.
Voltage:
Voltage is electric potential energy per unit charge, measured in joules per coulomb ( = volts). It
is often referred to as "electric potential", which then must be distinguished from electric
potential energy by noting that the "potential" is a "perunitcharge" quantity. Like mechanical
potential energy, the zero of potential can be chosen at any point, so the difference in voltage isthe quantity which is physically meaningful. The difference in voltage measured when moving
from point A to point B is equal to the work which would have to be done, per unit charge,
against the electric field to move the charge from A to B.
Electric potential:
A gravitational analogy was relied upon to explain the reasoning behind the relationship between
location and potential energy. Moving a positive test charge against the direction of an electric
field is like moving a mass upward within Earth's gravitational field. Both movements would be
like going against nature and would require work by an external force. This work would in turn
increase the potential energy of the object. On the other hand, the movement of a positive test
charge in the direction of an electric field would be like a mass falling downward within Earth's
gravitational field. Both movements would be like going with nature and would occur without
the need of work by an external force. This motion would result in the loss of potential energy.
Potential energy is the stored energy of position of an object and it is related to the location of
the object within a field.
Potential Difference:
A quantity related to the amount of energy needed to move an object from one place to another
against various types of forces. The term is most often used as an abbreviation of "electricalpotential difference", but it also occurs in many other branches of physics. Only changes in
potential or potential energy (not the absolute values) can be measured.Electrical potential
difference is the voltage between two points, or the voltage drop transversely over an impedance
(from one extremity to another). It is related to the energy needed to move a unit of electrical
charge from one point to the other against the electrostatic field that is present. The unit of
electrical potential difference is the volt (joule per coulomb). Gravitational potential difference

Kirchhoffs laws:
Kirchoff's Current Law:
First law (Current law or Point law):
The sum of the currents flowing towards any junction in an electric circuit is equal to the sum of
currents flowing away from the junction. Kirchoff's Current law can be stated in other words as
the sum of all currents flowing into a node is zero. Or conversely, the sum of all currents leaving
a node must be zero. As the image demonstrates, the sum of currents I1 and I2 must equal the
sum of currents I3 and I4 . Current flows through wires much like water flows through pipes. If
you have a definite amount of water entering a closed pipe system, the amount of water that
enters the system must equal the amount of water that exists the system. The number of
branching pipes does not change the net volume of water (or current in our case) in the system.
Kirchoff's Voltage Law:
Second law (voltage law or Mesh law):
In any closed circuit or mesh, the algebraic sum of all the electromotive forces and the voltage
drops is equal to zero.Kirchoff's voltage law can be stated in words as the sum of all voltage
drops and rises in a closed loop equals zero. As the image below demonstrates, loop 1 and loop 2
are both closed loops within the circuit. The sum of all voltage drops and rises around loop 1

8/10/2019 Electro Motive Force

equals zero, and the sum of all voltage drops and rises in loop 2 must also equal zero. A closed
loop can be defined as any path in which the originating point in the loop is also the ending point
for the loop. No matter how the loopis defined or drawn, the sum of the voltages in the loop must
be zero.

2) Electromagnetism
Electromagnetism describes the relationship between electricity and magnetism. We use
electromagnets to generate electricity, store memory on our computers, generate pictures on a
television screen. Electromagnetism works on the principle that an electric current through a wire
generates a magnetic field. In a bar magnet, the magnetic field runs from the North to the SouthPole. In a wire, the magnetic field forms around the wire. An electromagnet can be created by
wrap wire around a metal object.
Magnetic field:
When DC electricity is passed through a wire, a magnetic field rotates around the wire in a
specific direction. When bars of magnetic materials Iron, Cobalt, Nickel are wound with a coil

8/10/2019 Electro Motive Force
10/20
and current is passed though them, they become electromagnets. The strength of such an
electromagnet depends on the number of turns in the coil and the magnitude of the current
passing through it .The region or space around a magnet in which the magnetic effects are felt is
known as the magnetic field.The magnetic field is represented by magnetic lines of force, which
start from the North Pole and go into the South Pole. The magnetic lines of force are always closed
lines. The magnetic lines of force are purely imaginary lines. They do not intersect each other.
They are like elastic bands which always try to shorten themselves.
Magnetic Flux ():
The entire magnetic lines of force representing a magnetic field is known as the magnetic flux .Its unit is
weber, abbreviated as Wb, named after Wilhelm Eduard Weber (180491), a German Physicist.
The magnetic flux per unit area, the area being normal to the lines of flux is known as the flux
density. The unit is Weber per square metre (Wb/m2) or Tesla (T).
Wb/m2or T

M.M.F. is defined as the magnetic force, which creates magnetic flux is a magnetic material.
M.M.F = N * I ampere turns (AT), Where, N = Number of turns in the coil, I = Current through the coil
Reluctance (R):
Reluctanceis the property of a magnetic material by virtue of which, it opposes the creation of magneticflux in it.
R= M.M.F/Magnetic Flux =N*I/ ampere turns per weber (AT/Wb).
Permeability:
Permeability is basically the property of the magnetic material by virtue of which the magnetic flux can
be easily created in it. For any magnetic material, there are two permeabilities:
(i) Absolute permeability (ii) Relative permeability
Absolute Permeability ():
The absolute permeability of a magnetic material is defined as the flux induced in the magnetic material
per unit magnetising force.
where, H = magnetising force
Relative Permeability (r):
For defining the relative permeability of a magnetic material, the permeability of free space or air is taken
as reference. The relative permeability of free space or air is taken as unity. i.e r= 1,for free space orair.
The relative permeability is defined as the ratio of the flux density induced in the magnetic to the flux
density induced in free space or air when the same magnetising force is applied.
r is dimensionless ,If the permeability of iron is 500, it means that, iron is 500
times more magnetic than free space or air.
Magnetising Force (H): This is also referred as magnetic field strength or magnetic field
intensity.The magnetic field intensity at any point in a magnetic field is defined as the force
experienced by a unit North Pole placed at that point, both in magnitude and direction. The
magnetising force may also be defined as the number of ampere turns produced per unit length

The unit isAmpere turns per metre.
Faradays Laws:
First Law: Whenever the flux linking with a conductor changes, an emf is induced in it.
Second Law: The magnitude of the emf induced in a conductor or coil is equal to the rate of
change of flux linkages of it.
Faraday's law of electromagnetic induction states that:
Any change in the magnetic environment of a coil of wire will cause a voltage (emf) to be
"induced" in the coil. The change could be produced by changing the magnetic field strength,
moving a magnet toward or away from the coil, moving the coil into or out of the magnetic field,
rotating the coil relative to the magnet, etc.
E= N
where E= electromotive force in volts,N= No.of turns of wire,=Magnetic flux density in
webers
The induced emf in a coil is equal to the negative of the rate of change of magnetic flux times the
number of turns in the coil. It involves the interaction of charge with magnetic field.
Electromagnetic induction is the production of voltage across a conductor situated in a changing
magnetic field or a conductor moving through a stationary magnetic field. Faraday found that the
electromotive force (EMF) produced around a closed path is proportional to the rate of change of
the magnetic flux through any surface bounded by that path. In practice, this means that anelectrical current will be induced in any closed circuit when the magnetic flux through a surface
bounded by the conductor changes. Electromagnetic induction underlies the operation of
generators, all electric motors, transformers, induction motors, synchronous motors, solenoids,
and most other electrical machines.
Lenz Law:
The emf induced in an electric circuit always acts in such a direction that the current it drives
around the circuit opposes the change in magnetic flux which produces the emf.
The direction mentioned in Lenz's law can be thought of as the result of the minus sign in the
below equation
E=  N
dt
d
dt
d

8/10/2019 Electro Motive Force

When an emf is generated by a change in magnetic flux according to Faraday's Law, the polarity
of the induced emf is such that it produces a current whose magnetic field opposes the change
which produces it. The induced magnetic field inside any loop of wire always acts to keep the
magnetic flux in the loop constant.
Flemings Rules:
The relative directions of the magnetic field, current, and motion in an electric generator or
motor, can be represented using one's fingers. The three directions are represented by the thumb
(for motion),forefinger(forfield), and middle finger(for conventional current), all held at right
angles to each other. The right hand is used for generators and the left for motors. The rules were
devised by the English physicist John Fleming.
Fleming's Right hand rule:
The Right hand is held with the thumb index finger and middle finger mutually at right angles.
The Fore finger represents the direction of the Magnetic Field. The Middle finger represents the
direction of the Induced E.M.F or Current. The Thumb represents the direction of the Motion of
the Conductor.
An emf is induced in a coil or conductor whenever there is change in the flux linkages.
Depending on the way in which the changes are brought about, there are two types:
Statically induced E.M.F and
Dynamically induced E.M.F
Consider a coil of N turns as shown in Figure to which an alternating voltage V is applied,
due to which an alternating current I flows through the coil. This alternating current, produces
an alternating flux which links the coil. Hence, an e.m.f is induced in the coil, which is given
by the equation.

dNe
=

8/10/2019 Electro Motive Force

This induced e.m.f. opposes its own cause. Thus induced e.m.f opposes the appliedvoltage, which is the very cause of it.
The change of flux linking an electric circuit can take place in two ways. When a conductor cuts
across a magnetic field of constant flux density, the flux changes and an e.m.f. is induced in the
conductor.This type of e.m.f. induced is known as dynamically induced e.m.f.When the electric
circuit is in the form of a stationary coil , produces an alternating flux ,due to current passing
through coil which links the coil. An e.m.f. is induced in the stationary coil. This type of e.m.f
induced is known asstatically induced e.m.f.
Dynamically Induced E.M.F:
The emf induced in a conductor due to the relative motion between the magnetic field and the
conductor is called the dynamically induced emf.
Dynamically induced emf is obtained either,
1. Keeping the magnetic field stationary and moving the conductor in the magnetic field.
2. Keeping the conductor stationary and moving the field over the conductor.
Expression for Dynamically Induced E.M.F:
Consider a single conductor of length meters moving at right angles. A uniform magnetic
field of B wb/m2 Velocity of m/s. Suppose the conductor moves through a small distance
dx in dt seconds.
Then the area swept by the conductor = dx
Flux cut = d = Flux density Area swept

= B X dx weber
According to faradays laws of electromagnetic induction emf e induced in the conductor is
given by
Volts (N=1, d = B* *dx) and dx/dt = (Velocity)
If the conductor moves at an angle of to the magnetic field then the velocity at which the
conductor moves across the field is sin
e = B sin
where e = induced e.m.f
B = magnetic field
= velocity of conductor
Statically Induced E.M.F:
When both magnetic field and the conductor are stationary, emf induced in a conductor or coildue to the variation of flux linking with the conductor is called statistically induced emf. In this
neither the conductor nor the magnetic field moves, but the strength of the magnetic field varies.

Applications:
Dynamically induced emf principle is used in D.C generators, alternators, in cycle dynamo etc.
Statically induced emf principle is used in all types of transformers like power transformers,
distribution transformers and chokes.
There are two types of statically induced emfs. They are :
Selfinduced emf
Mutuallyinduced emf
1.Selfinduced E.M.F:
Self inductance is defined as the induction of a voltage in a currentcarrying wire when the
current in the wire itself is changing. In the case of selfinductance, the magnetic field created by
a changing current (AC) in the circuit itself induces a voltage in the same circuit. Self induced
emf will be in opposition to the applied voltage.
eL =Induced emf & measured in volts.
where N = Number of turns of the coil, = Flux linking with the coil
ve sign indicates induced emf is in the direction opposite to the applied voltage.
Increasing the number of turns or the rate of change of magnetic flux increases the amount of
induced voltage .

Therefore
Energy Stored in an Inductor:
An inductor is an inductive coil, which possesses both inductance and a small resistance. If the
resistance is neglected, it is called as an ideal inductor. A pure inductance does not consume any
energy and the energy supplied to the coil is stored in the form of an electromagnetic field.The
induced e.m.f opposes any change in the value of the current flowing through the coil. Hence in
order to establish a steady current of I amperes in t seconds, work has to be done to overcome
the opposition due to the induced e.m.f.

Mutuallyinduced E.M.F:
Two coils, which are placed close to each other are said to be mutually coupled, when a part of
the alternating flux produced in one coil links the other coil An e.m.f is induced in both the coils.
The e.m.f. induced in the first coil, where the flux is produced, is called asself induced e.m.f The
e.m.f. induced in the second coil, which links a part of the flux produced in the first coil, isknown as mutually induced e.m.f.
In figure flux 1, links coil 1 and hence an e.m.f. e1is induced in it.
This flux 12which links both coil 1 and coil 2, is called as the mutual fluxbetween the two
coils.
1= 11+ 12
The mutual flux 12 linking coil 2, induces an e.m.f. el2in that coil. This e.m.f. is known as the
mutually induced e.m.f .

As the coupling between the two coils is bilateral M12= M21= M
The mutual inductance between any two coils, which are placed close to each other, can be
defined as the ability of one coil to induce an e.m.f in the other coil, when an alternating current
flows through one of the coils.

Coefficient of Coupling (K):
The Coefficient of Coupling (K) between two coils is defined as the fraction of magnetic flux
produced by the current in one coil that links the other coil. The Coefficient of coupling is the
ratio of the mutual flux to the total flux. The Coefficient of Coupling (K) has a maximum value
of 1 (or 100%) The Coefficient of Coupling has a minimum value of zero which indicates thatthe two coils are magnetically isolated. Suppose the two coils have self inductances L1and L2
