Homework Help: What is the formula to solve for RPM to volatage output in a generator

  1. May 9, 2008 #1
    can anyone tell me how to solve for the voltage output in a generator and all the variables needed to solve it. What if I only have the RPM can I solve it?

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Um, how is the generator set up? Is it an AC generator? And does RPM refer to round/minute?

    It is a DC generator but I would also like to know how to solve it in an AC generator. How can I calculate the voltage output in relation to Rounds Per Minute?
