1. (a) Enumerate all the parts of a DC machine and indicate their functions. (b) An 8 pole lap wound generator armature has 960 conductors, a flux of 40mwb and a speed of 400 r.p.m. Calculate the e.m.f generated on open circuit. If the same armature is wave wound, at what speed it be driven to generate 400 volts? 2. (a) With neat circuit diagram, Explain swinburne’s test on a DC shunt motor to find the efficiency of DC machine when it runs as motor and generator? Mention the advantages and disadvantages of this method? (b) A 250 V DC shunt motor has an armature resistance of 0.5Ω and a field resistance of 250Ω. When driving a constant torque load at 600 rpm, the motor draws 21A. What will be the new speed of the motor if an additional 250Ω resistance is inserted in the field circuit? 3.
