AC Generator

We have a AC generator that is attached to a resistor with 500 kohms and a maximum voltage of 90 V. How do you calculate Imax, max power, avg power, rms current, rms voltage, and frequency.

Solution Preview

Note: ^ denotes power
V= Vm Sin w t
w =2pi f where f is the frequency
f=frequncy is a property of the electricity generated and is given
Assume in our case f= 60 Hz

Vm Sin w t= IR
or I ...

Solution Summary

The solution calculates maximum voltage, Imax, maximum power, average power, rms current, rms voltage, frequency
