Right here it's the example for the motor but the generator works the other way around. I'm aware of how it works anyway.
My problem is I fail to see the loops in the following diagrams and the actual generators.From the pictures I've seen I only see coils going from a slot to the commutators. The image on the right is the actual image and the one on the left is used for ease.
Let's take coil A for example. It goes from slot 1 to the commutator and from commutator to slot 3. So is coil A actually 2 coils? Where is the loop of coil A? I've been searching for quite some time but I can't find an explanation. Is the coil going behind the picture and coming of slot 3 to make a loop? Maybe I don't understand how the coils are placed.
