Report a.) The DC resistance had to be measured with the four points method because the resistance is relatively low. b.) The direction of the rotation wasn’t phase dependent; however, rotation was controlled with FWD/REV switch. The data was taken with the direction of rotation in a clockwise manner. c.) Theoretical Peak Current Value: = + ( )= ( ) ( )= . ( ) I VRSE RA From four points method 115 V 4 Ω 28 75 A The experimental peak current value is shown with the scope hardcopy on the next page. A possible reason for the modest discrepancy between the theoretical and the experimental peak values is that the scope capture need for the experimental value has some noise, thus making it hard to ascertain the peak value from the plot. 2
