simply put a motor consumes power and a generator produces it.

reactance of a generator = - reactance of a motor

in case of induction motor the rotor speed is less than synchronous speed giving positive slip but in case of generator the rptor speed is greater than synchronous speed giving negative slip.......

A simple one would.

### How do you attach motor to a battery for newton's disc?

You can attach a motor to a battery by connecting the positive terminal of the battery to the positive terminal of the motor using a wire, and connecting the negative terminal of the battery to the negative terminal of the motor. This will allow the motor to receive power from the battery and start spinning when turned on.

### How do you connect two twelve volt batteries for my motor home?

You will want to connect them in "parallel" (positive to positive, negative to negative). If you connect them in "series" (positive to negative) you will add one voltage to the other, making 24 volts.

### What is the difference between D.C Motor and D.C Generator?

Both are simply opposite. First of all a motor is any thing which produces mechanical energy with electrical energy intake and Generator is Vice-versa. It produces electrical energy with mechanical energy intake.Both are in same principle of induction but in opposite direction. Few appliances work on AC and few on DC(Alternative current,Direct current). AC has two levels to fluctuate i.e Positive and Negative where as DC has only one value to speak with,either positive or negative. Now DC Motor "needs" DC charge to operate and DC Generator "produces" DC charge as the output.

### What does a negative active power means?

Let see an example. The active power absorbed by an AC motor is used to produce mechanical power delivered on the output shaft. If the mechanical power is negative (the motor is pushed to work as a brake) the active power 'absorbed' is also negative. The motor converts the mechanical power in active electrical power delivered in the electrical network. Any AC generator is supplied with negative active power, or it deliver to the network positive active power.

### Can a motor operate as generator?

Yes, by giving mechanical power to motor . It acts as a Generator.

### How does ac electric motor convert in to an alternator?

a motor is a generator and a generator is a motor, if you are applying a voltage to turn the rotor its a motor and if you are turning the rotor and taking the voltage off the terminals its a generator or alternator.

### How do you wire two 12 volt marine batteries together to run a 24 volt trolling motor?

To wire two 12 volt marine batteries together to run a 24 volt trolling motor, you should connect the positive terminal of one battery to the negative terminal of the other battery using heavy-duty jumper cables or battery interconnect cables. Then, connect the positive terminal of the trolling motor to the positive terminal of one battery and the negative terminal of the trolling motor to the negative terminal of the other battery. This setup will create a 24 volt system for your trolling motor.

### What is positive power and negative power?

x raised to a positive power, a is xa where a> 0. If a is an integer then it is equal to x*x*...*x where there are a lots of x.x raised to a negative power is the same as the reciprocal of x raised to the absolute value of the power. Thus, if b < 0 then xb = 1/x-bwhere -b > 0.x raised to rational or irrational powers are defined using the power laws.Another AnswerThe terms 'positive' and 'negative' powercan also be used to describe the direction of energy flow. For example, when a generator supplies energy to the grid, we can say that the direction of that energy and, therefore, the rate at which the energy flows (i.e. power) is positive. However, when the grid supplies energy back to the generator (causing it to 'motor'), then the energy (and, therefore, the power) is negative.
