Introduction DC motors do not run at constant speeds because the Emf due to the field inside them is not constant. The flow of current is in the opposite direction as compared to the synchronous motors. DC motors operate very differently depending on the type of connection configuration. If connected in series with a series field, a reversed series field, or with just a shunt connection the motor will produce different results under load. This experiment measures those results under different controlled parameters. . The AC machine was coupled to the DC machine as a generator with the FPS to control the field current and the stator windings were connected to the resistive load box to vary the armature current. Purpose The main purpose of this experiment was to obtain the current and power curves of a DC motor under varying load and connection configurations. These curves help us understand the relationship between the speed and armature current of a DC motor under load and with different connection configurations.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
