Construction of a DC Generator

A DC Generator is an electrical device which converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. It mainly consists of three main parts, i.e. magnetic field system, armature and commutator and brush gear. The other parts of a DC Generator are magnetic frame and yoke, pole core and pole shoes, field or exciting coils, armature core and …

DC Machine

A DC Machine is an electro-mechanical energy conversion device. There are two types of DC machines; one is the DC generator, and another one is known as DC motor. A DC generator converts mechanical power (ωT) into DC electrical power (EI), whereas, a DC motor converts d.c electrical power into mechanical power. The AC motor …

Star Connection in a 3 Phase System

In the Star Connection, the similar ends (either start or finish) of the three windings are connected to a common point called star or neutral point. The three-line conductors run from the remaining three free terminals called line conductors. The wires are carried to the external circuit, giving three-phase, three-wire star connected systems. However, sometimes …
