Section Two: Creating a Portable Student-Powered Generator Page 30 ENGR 202 Manual © 2006 Oregon State University SECTION OVERVIEW In the next five weeks, you will be implementing the design that you and your team developed during the first week of this term. Each of you will build your own generator for charging the portable device that you chose. As was the case in the first section, this manual is not intended to be a step-by-step manual; instead, you will be provided with objectives that you should meet by certain dates. Top-level objectives Students will create a three-phase generator to observe and test three-phase circuits. Students will create a final prototype of a student designed generator that not only rectifies its output to DC, but is also capable of charging their portable device. Students will protect their portable device by designing a filter to remove unwanted current spikes. Comprehensive objectives 1. Create a three-phase generator with six coils. 2. Test the three-phase generator: determine phase shift of three phases. 3. Create the final generator. 4. Determine the efficiency of the generator. 5. Add a bridge rectifier and a capacitor to the PSPICE schematic and simulate. 6. Create and test the bridge rectifier and capacitor circuit. 7. Add a voltage regulator circuit. 8. Test the generator with the simulated load. 9. Add a connector for the portable device, (if you are confident about your design). 10. Create a final written report. (Entitled: Project Specification for a Portable Student-Powered Generator to Power (portable device name) . 11. Prepare a final presentation. (This is a six to ten minute presentation detailing the performance of your prototype and the steps that you took to create it). Note: This is a five-week section. Your team will have four weeks to complete Objectives #1 through #9. During the fifth week, each of you will turn in the written report, and your team will give the oral presentation. It is suggested that you complete Objective #2 by the end of Week One, Objective #5 by Week Two, Objective #7 by Week Three, and Objective #11 by Week Four.

Section Two: Creating a Portable Student-Powered Generator © 2006 Oregon State University ENGR 202 Manual Page 31 PROCEDURE As in Section One, you may complete these steps out of order if you like, but each step assumes that you have completed the preceding steps. Objective #1: Create a three-phase generator with six coils You and your team will now create a three phase generator. Work as a team to complete this objective as well as for Objective #2; your team only needs to build one three-phase generator. However, each member of your team should add the five additional coils to their generator , in order to be ready for next week.
