Show More Ask Question

1 Answer

Answer :

This  is  because  the  angle  at  which  the   magnetic  fields  cuts  across  a  winding  changes  its  poles  thus  current  has  to  change  dirention  .

Description : What is the direction of an AC current?

Answer : The magnitude and direction of alternating current is changes with respect to time. So for half cycle it is positive and for next half cycle it is negative.

Description : The direction of rotation of an inverter fed 3-phase ac motor is reversed by (A) a mechanical reversing switch (B) reversing the input dc link voltage (C) operating the inverter as a rectifier (D) changing the sequence of switching

Answer : The direction of rotation of an inverter fed 3-phase ac motor is reversed by changing the sequence of switching

Description : What happens when you reverse the direction of the current in an electromagnet?
