Applications of Shunt Wound DC Generators

The application of shunt generators are very much restricted for its
dropping voltage characteristic. They are used to supply power to
the apparatus situated very close to its position. These type of DC
generators generally give constant terminal voltage for small
distance operation with the help of field regulators from no load to
full load.

They are used for general lighting.

They are used to charge battery because they can be made to

give constant output voltage.

3. They are used for giving the excitation to the alternators.

They are also used for small power supply.
