Module 6 | Electromagnetism

Content 3: Electromagnetic induction

Lesson 1 | Magnetic flux through an area

  • describe how magnetic flux can change, with reference to the relationship \Phi = BA (ACSPH083, ACSPH107, ACSPH109)

Lesson 2 | Electromagnetic induction

  • analyse qualitatively and quantitatively, with reference to energy transfers and transformations, examples of Faraday’s law and Lenz’s law (\varepsilon = -N\frac{\Delta \Phi }{\Delta t}), including but not limited to: (ACSPH081, ACSPH110)
    – the generation of an electromotive force (emf) and evidence for Lenz’s law produced by the relative movement between a magnet, straight conductors, metal plates and solenoids
    – the generation of an emf produced by the relative movement or changes in current in one solenoid in the vicinity of another solenoid

Lesson 3 | Transformers

  • analyse quantitatively the operation of ideal transformers through the application of: (ACSPH110)
    \frac{V_{P}}{V_{s}} = \frac{N_{P}}{N_{s}}
    – VpIp = VsIs

Lesson 4 | Transformer efficiency and applications

  • evaluate qualitatively the limitations of the ideal transformer model and the strategies used to improve transformer efficiency, including but not limited to:
    – incomplete flux linkage
    – resistive heat production and eddy currents

  • analyse applications of step-up and step-down transformers, including but not limited to:
    – the distribution of energy using high-voltage transmission lines
