    sorry for this question but i have doubt. In that diagram mention about flux linkage. i don't know why there is no emf at 0,180 degree of conductor and why peak range emf at 90 ,270 degree. And what is flux linkage. please explain it. don't explain like theory. please explain me elaborately.

    The conductor is at perpendicular angles to the magnetic fields at 0, 180. It is parallel to the magnetic fields at 90, 270,

    Everything in between is "triangle math" (sin, cos), and imaginary numbers which essentially state if voltage is leading current or vice versa.

    If this doesn't come close to answering your question or understanding, I apologize, but you stated "no theory", which I assume to mean "no math".

    --ETA: The above may contain errors, to cause you to think about it.

    --ETA2: 5,000th post was this answer! Hope it doesn't die!
