Hello I was recently watching this video and I have 1 question the video doesn't explains.It says that when the coil will start rotating the rings will start rotating as well.

enter image description here

But how do I connect the coil to them rings?Do I glue the coil on them??


The wires are usually soldered to the rings, there may also be a clamp type joint as well.

On dynamos, where there were some 40 wire ends coming to the commutator, each had to be soldered to the correct segment - a job I remember fondly...

What you then do with those rings is to split them so each ring is in two halves and then you cam make a commutator...

  • $\begingroup$ for dc generator yes but an ac generator is much simpler to be built so I will start from there. Since the wires are soldered to the ring if I rotate the ring the coil will start rotating correct? $\endgroup$
