Its armature resistance is 0.016 . Ω The core losses of this machine at rated conditions are 7 KW, and the friction and windage losses are 8 KW. a. Determine the electrical losses of this generator at rated conditions. b. If this generator is operating at the rated conditions, what input torque must be applied to the shaft? Express your answer both in Newton-meters and in pound- feet. Solution: a. Electrical losses KW 15.32 10 016 565 3 3 3 2 2 = = = =- x R I P P a a cu elec ) . ( ) ( . b.
