Is positively charged, which means that the nucleus of the atom is positively charged. The electron is an even smaller part of the atom, and is negatively charged. It orbits the nucleus and is held in orbit by the attraction of the positively charged proton. All electrons are similar no matter what type of atom they come from. When atoms are in a balanced state, the number of electrons orbiting the nucleus equals the number of protons. The atoms of some materials have electrons that are easily detached from the parent atom and can therefore join an adjacent atom.

It became known as the constant current charging system. By today’s standards this was a very large dynamo and could produce only about 8 A. Many other techniques were tried over the next decade or so to solve the problem of controlling output on a constantly varying speed dynamo. Some novel control methods were used, some with more success than others. For example, a drive system, which would slip beyond a certain engine speed, was used with limited success, while one of my favourites had a hot wire in the main output line which, as it became red hot, caused current to bypass it and flow through a ‘bucking’ coil to reduce the dynamo field strength.

Running engines Do not wear loose clothing, good overalls are ideal. Keep the keys in your possession when working on an engine to prevent others starting it. Take extra care if working near running drive belts. Exhaust gases Suitable extraction must be used if the engine is running indoors.
