There are two main types of electric motors
There are direct current or DC and alternating
current or AC motors
The reference of DC or AC refers to how the
electrical current is transferred through and
from the motor.
BASIC CONSTRUCTION
Consist of stationary part (stator)
Rotating part (rotor) connected to shaft that
couples the machine to its mechanical load
Usually stator and rotor are made of iron to
intensify the magnetic field
Armature and field windings
A machine may contain several sets of
windings (commonly armature and field)
The purpose of the field winding is to set up
the magnetic field required to produce torque
The armature windings carry currents that
In DC motor, the field winding is on the stator
while armature is on the rotor
ROTATING DC MACHINES
Consist of
Rotor (rotating part)
Stator (stationary part)
Brushes
Commutator
Shaft
Field magnet
Induced EMF and commutation
Rotation of the shaft
When we supply the specified
voltage to a motor, it rotates the
output shaft at some speed.
This rotational speed or angular
velocity, is typically measured
in revolutions/minute (rpm)

Torque is the product of Force x Lever Arm
Clockwise and Counter-Clockwise efforts are
distinguished by differences in sign (+ or -)
The quantitative measure of the tendency of
a force to cause or change rotational motion
is called torque

Equivalent Circuit of the DC Motor
The field circuit is represented by resistance R
F
and
inductance L
F
in series
Consider steady state operation in which current are
constant, and neglect the inductance because it
behaves as a short circuit for dc current
Thus for DC field ,
F F F
I R V =
The voltage E
A
shown in the equivalent circuit
represents the average voltage induced in the
armature due to the motion of the conductors
relative to the magnetic field.
The resistance R
A
is the resistance of the
armature windings plus the brush resistance.

SHUNT CONNECTED DC MOTOR
The field current is in parallel with the armature
The field circuit consist of rheostat having a
that can be used to adjust motor speed
If the adjustable resistance is increase while
holding the source voltage constant, the speed
would also increase
Also, if the voltage source is increase the field
current could be hold constant to increase the
speed by increasing the value of adjustable
resistance
The machine is supplied by constant voltage
source, VT
Has very high starting torque and draws very
large starting currents
Usually, resistance inserted in series with
armature during starting to limit the current
to reasonable levels

SEPARATELY EXCITED DC MOTORS
Similar to shunt-connected motor except
different source are used for the armature and
field
Separate as reason to be able to control speed
by varying one of these two sources
PERMANENT MAGNET MOTORS
The field is supplied by magnets mounted on the stator
rather than field coil
No power required to establish the field-leading to better
efficiency
PM motor can be smaller than equivalent machine with
field winding
The magnet can become demagnetized by overheating/
excessive armature current
Torque produced per ampere of armature current is
smaller
SERIES CONNECTED DC MOTORS
The field winding is in series with armature
Has moderate starting torque and starting
current
Speed automatically adjust over a large range as
Because it slows down for heavier load, its output
power is more nearly constant than other types
of motor
Advantageous because the motor can operate
within its maximum power rating for a wide
Ex: starter motor in automobiles, when engine is cold
the starter motor operate at lower speed, when
engine warm the starter spin faster.in either case, the
currrent drawn from battery remains within
acceptable limit

Several methods can be used to control the
speed of dc motors:
Vary the voltage supplied to the armature circuit
while holding the field constant.
Vary the field current while holding the armature
supply voltage constant.
Insert resistance in series with the armature
circuit.

A certain 5-hp three-phase induction motor operates from
a 440-Vrms (line to line) three-phase source and draws a
line current of 6.8-Arms at a power factor of 78% lagging
(cos = 0.78) under rated full load conditions.
the speed is 1195 rpm, and the line current is 1.2 Arms at a
power factor of 30% lagging.
Determine :
(a) Power loss
(b) Efficiency
(c) The input power with no-load
(d) Speed regulation

A group of students have been assigned to carry out an
experiment using a new dc motor through Pout= 37.285 kW
that operates from a 220-Vrms dc source with losses of 3350
1150 rpm. Under no-load conditions, the speed is 1200
rpm.
Determine :
(a) Source current
(c) Speed regulation

A 50-hp shunt-connected dc motor has the machine constant
K=2.228. The dc supply voltage is VT=240V, the armature
resistance is RA= 0.065, the field resistance is RF=10, and
rotational loss is Prot=1450 W. If this motor drives a hoist that
demands a torque of Tout=250 Nm independent of speed,
determine:
(a) Filed current
(b) Trot and Tdev
(c) Armature current and voltage
(applying Kirchhoffs voltage law)
