ELECTROSTATIC GENERATORS (VAN de GRAAFF) TUTORIALS AND LINKS

Electrostatic Generators also called as Van de Graaf Generators are essentially high voltage but low power devices, and their power rating seldom exceeds few tens of kilowatts. Such electrostatic machines which effectively convert mechanical energy into electrical energy using variable capacitor.

History of Electrostatic Generators
In ancient greece, the amber was known to attract little objects after being rubbed with cloth or fur. From the Greek expression elektron, the modern term electrics is directly derived. In 1600, William Gilbert (1544-1603) coined the expression electrica in his famous book De Magnete. Read more..

How the Van de Graaff Generator Works
Figure 1 illustrates a simple construction of the Van de Graaff generator. A small 12-Vdc permanent magnetic motor placed at the base end drives a plastic pulley. A rubber belt is drven by the pulley. As the pulley rotates, it acquires a negative charge from the belt by triboelectrification. Thus, the inside surface of the rubber belt becomes negatively charged. Read more...
