INTRODUCTION

A rotating electric machine which delivers a unidirectional


voltage and current. An armature winding mounted on the
rotor supplies the electricpower output. One or more field
windings mounted on the stator establish the magnetic flu
x in the air gap. A voltage is induced in thearmature coils
as a result of the relative motion between the coils and th
e air gap flux. Faraday's law states that the voltage induce
d isdetermined by the time rate of change of flux linkages
with the winding. Since these induced voltages are alterna
ting, a means of rectificationis necessary to deliver direct
current at the generator terminals. Rectification is accomp
lished by a commutator mounted on the rotor shaft.Carbo
n brushes, insulated from the machine frame and secured
in brush holders, transfer the armature current from the r
otating commutatorto the external circuit.This report is to
examine and test the generator condition.
OBJECTIVE
This is report to identify some parts and the function of
the dc generator.The main part of dc generator that
student should know is the yoke,field winding,salient
poles,both the end assy,the commutators,the armature
windings and the armature core.This practical also teach
student how to inspect and method to inspect the dc
generator.This will make sure student will now the
condition of the dc generator that it is in good condition or
bad condition.
SAFETY PRECAUTION
Student must always: Wear proper workshop etire such as,safety boot,
workshop jacket and proper pants.
Must always wait and follow the instruction from the
instructor.

Do not play with all the probes.Especially with the


growler probes that generate electric.
Take care all the instrument properly.
Make sure follow the correct procedure when doing
the inspection
TOOLS AND EQUIPMENT
Set of dc generator
A multimeter to check continuity and short circuit
The growler to test armature
Hacksaw blade to check short circuit
Conclusion
The yoke is ok, field winding ok,salient poles ok,both
the end assy ok,the commutators ok,armature windings
ok and the armature core also ok.The dc generator part
that my group inspected is working in very good
condition.The dc generator is very fits and can installed
in aircraft anytime.The inspection must be done to make
sure the dc generator can work properly.
