The flux density distribution around the air gap in all well designed alternators is symmetrical with respect to abscissa and also to polar axis. Thus it can be expressed with the help of a Fourier series which do not contain any even harmonics.

So flux density at any angle from the interpolar axis is given by,

B = B

_{m1 }sinθ + B_{m3 }sin 3θ + ... + B_{mx }sin xθ + ...
where x = Order of harmonic component which is odd

B

_{m1 }= Amplitude of fundamental component of flux density
B

_{m3 }= Amplitude of 3^{rd}harmonic component of flux density
B

_{mx }= Amplitude of x^{th}(odd) harmonic component of flux density
The e.m.f. generated in a conductor on the armature of a rotating machine is given by,

e

_{c }= B**l v**
Substituting value of B,

e

_{c }= (B_{m1 }sinθ + B_{m3 }sin3θ+ .... + B_{mx }sinxθ + ...... )**l v****l = Active length of conductor in meter**

d = Diameter of the armature at the air gap

v = Linear velocity = π d n

where n

_{s }= Synchronous speed in r.p.s.
Now N

Area of x

This is because, there are xP poles for the x

Now B

_{m1 }A_{1 }= Φ_{1m }= maximum value of fundamental flux per pole**.**Φ

^{.}._{1 }= (2/π) Φ

_{1m }= Average value of fundamental flux per pole

Similarly average value of x

^{th}harmonic flux per pole can be obtained as,
Φ

_{x }= (2/π) A_{x }B_{mx }
Substituting the values of flux in e

_{c }we get the expression for e.m.f. induced per conductor as,
e

_{c }= π f (_{}Φ_{1 }sinθ +_{ }3Φ_{3 }sin3θ+ .... + x_{ }Φ_{x }sinxθ )
Instantaneous value of fundamental frequency e.m.f. generated in a conductor is,

e

_{c1 }= π f Φ_{1 }sinθ V
Hence the R.M.S. value of fundamental frequency e.m.f. generated in a conductor is,

E

_{c1 }= (π f Φ_{1 })/√2 = 2.22 fΦ_{1 }
Hence R.M.S. value of x

^{th}harmonic frequency e.m.f. generated in a conductor is,

It can be observed that the magnitude of harmonic e.m.f.s are directly proportional to their corresponding flux densities.

The R.M.S. value of resultant e.m.f. of a conductor is,

__1.1 Effect of Harmonic Components on Pitch Factor__

We know that,

**α**= Angle of short pitch for fundamental flux wave

The it changes for various harmonic component of flux as,

3

**α**= For 3^{rd}harmonic component
5

**α**= For 5^{th}harmonic component**.**

**.**

**.**

x

**α**= For x^{th}harmonic component
Hence the pitch factor is expressed as,

where x = Order of harmonic component

__1.2 Effect of Harmonic Components on Distribution Factor__

Similar to the pitch factor, the distribution factor is also different for various harmonic components.

The general expression to obtain distribution factor is,

where x = order of harmonic component

__1.3 Total E.M.F. Generated due to Harmonic Components__

Considering the windings to short pitch and distributed, the e.m.f. of a fundamental frequency is given by,

E

_{1ph }= 4.44 K_{c1 }K_{d1 }Φ_{1 }f T_{ph }V
where T

_{ph }= Turns per phase in series
Φ

_{1 }= Fundamental flux component
While the phase e.m.f. of order harmonic component of frequency is given by,

E

_{xph }= 4.44 K_{cx }K_{dx }_{ }x Φ_{x }f T_{ph }V
The total phase e.m.f. is given by,

**Line e.m.f**. : For star connected, the line or terminal induced e.m.f. is √3 times the total phase e.m.f. but it should be noted that with star connection, the 3

^{rd }harmonic voltages do not appear across line terminal though present in phase voltage.

**Note**: In data connection also, 3

^{rd}, 9

^{th}, 15

^{th}... harmonic voltages do not appear at the line terminals.

Taking ratio of fundamental frequency e.m.f. and x

^{th}order harmonic frequency e.m.f. we can write,
