Main Document

Electric Generator Model 

written by Anne Cox and Wolfgang Christian

The EJS Electric Generator Model shows a simple electric generator made from a conducting loop rotating in a uniform magnetic field and connected to an ammeter. The model shows a plot of the magnetic flux and induced current. If Ejs is installed, right-clicking within the plot and selecting "Open Ejs Model" from the pop-up menu item allows for editing of the model.

The Electric Generator model was created using the Easy Java Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_em_Generator.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Ejs is a part of the Open Source Physics Project and is designed to make it easier to access, modify, and generate computer models.  Additional Ejs models are available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Ejs.
