Electric DC Motors Principle Of Operation & Types

First of all we should understand the concept of electric DC motors, an electric motor is a machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. Most of the electric motors operate through the interaction between electric motor’s magnetic field and winding currents to generate force within the motor. In certain applications, such as in the… Read More »

How to Calculate Torque of DC Motor?

As you are familiar with the principle of a DC motor or DC machine that when it is loaded either as a motor or as a generator, conductors of the rotor are carrying the current. To better understand the concept, imagine the conductors which are laying in the magnetic field which is present in the… Read More »

DC Shunt Motor – Definition & Principle

What is a DC Shunt Motor? The shunt wound DC motor falls under the category of self excited DC motors, where the field windings are shunted to, or are connected in parallel to the armature winding of the motor, as its name is suggestive of. And for this reason both the armature winding and the… Read More »
