Why Generator rotate only clock wise ?..

Answer / venkatesh a

By rotating alternator rotor in any direction electrical
power can be generated. But for making the parellel
operation, synchronisation is important factor.

For the purpose of syncronisation all alternators direction
are maintained same clockwise direction.

Why Generator rotate only clock wise ?..

Answer / ramji

It normally depends upon prime mover rotating
direction.Even we can make it anti clockwise, by changing
the prime mover direction.

Why Generator rotate only clock wise ?..

Answer / rakesh kumar

Now it must be noted that in a generator the prime mover
torque is applied against the direction of electromagnetic
torque . the field system prodeuces the field flux and 90
lagging to it is produced the armature flux . the resultant
air gap flux somewhere between the two , all the three
fluxes revolving in the same counterclockwise direction and
hence the required electromagnetic torque is set up in the
counterclockwise direction and hence the primemover torque
is applied in the clockwise direction .

Why Generator rotate only clock wise ?..

Answer / ashwin baghel

It doesn't matter the generator is moving clockwise or anti clockwise . It doesn't make any difference in the production of alternating current in both cases

Answer / yaseen

GENERATOR ROTATES ON THE CLOCKWISE DIRECTION BECAUSE OF
THE ROTATION OF THE PRIMEMOVE >


SO FAR AS PER MY KNOWLEDGE IS CONSIDERDE I THINK
BECAUSE OF FLEMINGS RIGHT HAND RULE

Why Generator rotate only clock wise ?..

Answer / gaju

its a standard....
as primemover rotate in clockwise ultimately genrator
rotate in same direction
