Induction generator
Induction generator In*duc"tion gen"er*a`tor A machine built as an induction motor and driven above synchronous speed, thus acting as an alternating-current generator; -- called also asynchronous generator. Below synchronism the machine takes in electrical energy and acts as an induction motor; at synchronism the power component of current becomes zero and changes sign, so that above synchronism the machine (driven for thus purpose by mechanical power) gives out electrical energy as a generator.
Induction motor
Induction motor Induction motor (Elec.) A type of alternating-current motor comprising two wound members, one stationary, called the stator, and the other rotating, called the rotor, these two members corresponding to a certain extent to the field and armature of a direct-current motor.
Inductional
Inductional In*duc"tion*al, a. Pertaining to, or proceeding by, induction; inductive.
Self-induction
Self-induction Self`-in*duc"tion, n. (Elec.) Induction in a circuit due to the action of one portion of a current upon an adjacent portion during periods of varying current strength. The nature of the induction is such as to oppose the action which produces it.
Successive induction
Successive Suc*ces"sive, a. [Cf. F. successif. See Succeed.] 1. Following in order or in uninterrupted course; coming after without interruption or interval; following one after another in a line or series; consecutive; as, the successive revolution of years; the successive kings of Egypt; successive strokes of a hammer. Send the successive ills through ages down. --Prior. 2. Having or giving the right of succeeding to an inheritance; inherited by succession; hereditary; as, a successive title; a successive empire. [Obs.] --Shak. Successive induction. (Math.) See Induction, 5.
Superinduction
Superinduction Su`per*in*duc"tion, n. The act of superinducing, or the state of being superinduced. --South.
Unipolar induction
Unipolar U`ni*po"lar, a. [Uni- + polar.] 1. (Physics) Having, or acting by means of, one pole only. 2. (Anat.) Having but one pole or process; -- applied to those ganglionic nerve cells which have but one radiating process; -- opposed to multipolar. Unipolar induction (Elec.), induction, as in a conducting circuit, by only one pole of a magnet. Unipolar stimulation (Physiol.), the simulation sometimes produced when one electrode of an induction apparatus is applied to a nerve; -- called also unipolar induction action. --Du Bois-Reymond.
