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?
thanks
thanks

The formula to solve for RPM (revolutions per minute) to voltage output in a generator is:
Voltage Output (V) = (RPM x Number of Poles) / 120
The higher the RPM, the higher the voltage output in a generator. This is because the faster the rotor spins, the more magnetic flux is created, resulting in a higher induced voltage.
The number of poles in the formula represents the number of magnetic poles on the rotor of the generator. This is important because it determines the frequency of the output voltage.
Yes, the formula can be used for all types of generators as long as the number of poles is known. However, the actual voltage output may vary due to other factors such as the design and efficiency of the generator.
Yes, the formula can be rearranged to solve for RPM. The formula would be:
RPM = (Voltage Output x 120) / Number of Poles
