1. Field system The function of the field system is to create a uniform magnetic field within which the armature rotates. Electro-magnets are preferred in comparison with permanent magnets on accounts of its greater magnetic effect and its field strength regulation, which can be achieved by controlling the magnetising current.

2. ARMATURE It is a rotating part of a dc machine and is built up in a cylindrical or drum shape. The purpose of armature is to rotate the conductors in the uniform magnetic field. It consists of coils of insulated wires wound around an iron core. In addition , the most important function of the armature is to provide a path of very low reluctance to the magnetic flux. The armature core is made up of high permeability silicon steel stampings, each stamping, being separated from its neighbouring one by thin coating of varnish as insulation.

Armature continues…….

The use of high grade steel is made (a) to keep hysteresis loss low, which is due to cyclic change of magnetisation caused by the rotation of core in the magnetic field and (b) to reduce eddy current in the core which are induced by the rotation of the core in the magnetic field. By using stampings or laminations, the path of the eddy current is cut into several units. Each lamination is about 0.3 to 0.6 mm thick.

DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR commutator continues……

It is a very important part of a dc machine and serves the following purpose: 1. It provides the electrical connections between the rotating armature coils and the stationary external circuit. 2. As the armature rotates, it performs a switching action to change the direction of flow of current in armature conductors so that the armature may be able to run in the same direction 3. It also keeps the rotor or armature mmf stationary in space.

DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR commutator continues……

The commutator is essentially of cylindrical structure and is built up of wedge shaped segments of high conductivity hard drawn copper or drop forged copper .These segments are insulated from each other by thin layers of mica ( usually of 0.5 to 1.0mm thickness) or micanite. The segments are held together by means of two V-shaped rings that fit into the Vgrooves cut into the segments.

The winding ends are soldered with copper lugs or risers. The risers have air space between them so that air is drawn across the the commutator thereby keeping the commutator cool.

The commutator is pressed on to the armature shaft, and the outer periphery is then machined to provide smooth surface with which a stationary carbon (or graphite or copper) brush can maintain continuous contact at the armature and commutator rotate. Great care is taken in building the commutator because even slight eccentricity will cause the brushes to bounce, causing undue sparking.

**4. BRUSHES AND BRUSH GEARS
**

The function of brushes is send current from external supply source to armature conductor i.e. armature winding. Brushes are rectangular in shape and rest on the commutator. Brushes are manufactured in variety of compositions and degrees of hardness to suit the commutation requirement. They may be classified roughly as carbon, carbon graphite, graphite, metal graphite.

WORKING PRINCIPLE:

The principle upon which a dc motor works is If a current carrying conductor is placed in a magnetic field, mechanical force is experienced on the conductor, the direction of which is given by Fleming’s left hand rule (also called motor rule) and hence the the conductor moves in the direction of force.

22

DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR

The magnitude of the mechanical force experienced on the conductor is given by

F = B.I.L

newtons

Where, B is the flux density in teslas ( Wb/m2 ) I is the current flowing through conductor in amperes L is the is length of conductor in meters. In general if the conductor lies at an angle θ with a magnetic field of flux density B webers/meter2 , the mechanical force experienced on a conductor is given by

F = B.I.L. sin θ newtons

23

**FLEMING’S LEFT HAND RULE:
**

This rule states that if the thumb, forefinger and middle finger of the left hand are stretched in such a way that they are at right angle to each other mutually and forefinger points towards the direction of magnetic field, the middle finger towards the direction of flow of current then the thumb will point the direction of force acting on the conductor.

The lines of force above the conductor are strengthened, since they are in the same direction, but the lines of force below the conductor are weakened because the two fields below the conductor are opposite in directions and hence tends to destroy each other.

Magnetic lines like rubber bands have a tendency to strengthen out and, therefore, a force is experienced on the conductor in the downward direction, as shown in the fig.( C ).

If the direction of current is reversed in the conductor , as shown in the Fig. (d), the direction of force experienced is reversed. In this case the lines of force above the conductor are weakened while those below the conductor are strengthened.

**COMMUTATOR ACTION IN A DC MOTOR
**

In the case of dc motor, it is necessary that the current through the coils of armature winding be reversed as a particular coil leaves one pole (say, north pole), crosses the neutral line and comes under the influence next pole which is of opposite polarity (i. e. the south pole) The operation of commutator, that serves the above purpose, is given below: Consider a single turn coil, whose leads are soldered to cummutator segment (a) and (b), each carrying a brush as illustrated in fig shown in next slide

The positive side of the supply line is connected to left hand brush and negative side to the right side brush. In position I, the line current arrives at the commutator segment (a), flows through the bottom side 1 of the coil away from the reader and the upper side 2 of the coil towards the reader, reaches the commutator segment (b) and flows again into the line through the brush. The coil will tend to rotate in clock-wise direction, as determined by Fleming’s left hand rule.

Commutator action continues….

40

DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR Commutator action continues….

In position II, the coil is on the magnetic neutral line; there is no contact between the commutator segments and the brushes, there is no flow of current through the coil. The coil crosses the neutral line by inertia. In case of multi-turn coil, the remaining turns of the coil will supply the necessary torque. In position III, the two sides of the coil, 1 and 2, have changed poles, and the current flowing them has reversed. The commutator segments, however, have also changed contact with the brushes. Thus the coil will continue to rotate in the same direction as before, i.e. clock-wise.

41

DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR

**BACK EMF IN A DC MOTOR AND ITS IMPORTANCE
**

When the armature of motor continues to rotate due to motoring action, the armature conductors cut the magnetic flux and therefore emfs are induced in them. The direction of this induced emf, known as back emf, is such that it opposes the applied voltage.

Back emf continues…..

42

**DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR
**

Back emf continues…..

Since the back emf is induced due to the generator action, the magnitude of it is, therefore, given by the expression, Back emf, Eb = ØZNP …..(1.1) 60 x A Where, Ø is flux per pole in webers, Z is the total number of armature conductors or coil sides on the armature, P is the number of poles, A is the number of parallel paths in the armature, N is the rotational speed of the armature in rpm

Depends among other factors upon the armature speed and the armature current depends upon the back emf Eb for a constant applied voltage and armature resistance. If the armature speed is high, back emf will be large and therefore, armature current small. If the speed of the armature is low, then back emf will be less and armature current Ia will be more resulting in development of large torque.

**POWER RELATIONSHIP IN A DC MOTOR
**

Voltage equation for a motor is: V = Eb + Ia Ra Multiplying each term of the voltage equation by Ia we get VIa = Eb Ia + Ia2 Ra …….(1.3) The equation (1.3) is known as power equation of the dc motor The term VIa represents the power supplied to the 2 motor armature, Ia Ra represents the power lost in the armature, Eb Ia represents developed in the armature causing rotation of the armature.

Since Z, A and P are constant for a particular machine. Now in the above expression for speed, voltage V is constant and the armature drop Ia Ra is negligible compared to supply voltage V . Therefore, the speed of the motor is inversely proportional to the flux per pole i.e. the speed of the motor increases with the fall in flux.

62

DIRECT CURRENT MOTOR

**SPEED REGULATION OF DC MOTOR
**

The speed regulation of a dc motor is defined as the change in speed when the load on the motor is reduced from full load to zero and is expressed in percentage of rated full load speed. Therefore percentage speed regulation = N0 – Nf Nf x 100

Where N0 and Nf are no-load and full load speeds respectively. The motor capable of maintaining a nearly constant speed for varying loads is said to have a good speed regulation. 63

**OPERATING CHARACTERISTICS OF DC MOTORS
**

The performance and, therefore, suitability of a dc motor is determined from its characteristics known as performance characteristics. The important characteristics of dc motors are: 1. Torque – Armature Current Characteristic. This characteristic curve gives relation between torque developed in armature, T and armature current, Ia. This is also known as electrical characteristic.

**2. Speed – Current Characteristic of DC Series Motor.
**

From the expression for speed, N α V – Ia Ra Ø it is obvious that speed is directly proportional to applied voltage and inversely proportional to flux per pole. If the applied voltage remains constant, speed is inversely proportional to flux. So if a curve is drawn between reciprocal of the flux and current I, the speed – current characteristic is obtained, which is a rectangular hyperbola in shape as shown in fig. in next slide.

**3. Torque – Current Characteristic of dc series motor:
**

From the expression of mechanical torque T α Ø Ia , it is obvious that torque is directly proportional to the product of flux per pole Ø and armature current Ia. up to saturation point flux is proportional to field current and hence to the armature current, because Ia = If . Therefore on light load mechanical torque T is proportional to the square of the armature current ARMATURE CURRENT IN AMPS i.e. Ta α Ia2 and 75

and hence curve drawn between Torque and armature current is a parabola as shown in the fig. After saturation point flux is almost independent of excitation current and so torque is directly proportional to the armature current i.e. T α Ia . Hence the characteristic becomes a straight line.

1. Speed – Current characteristic of dc Shunt motor: If the voltage V is kept constant the field current will remain constant hence flux will have maximum value on no-load but will decrease slightly due to armature reaction as the load increases but for most purpose the flux is considered to be constant, neglecting the effect of armature reaction.

From the expression of speed for a dc motor, N α V – Ia Ra or Eb Ø Ø speed N is directly proportional to back emf, Eb or ( V – Ia Ra ) and inversely proportional. Since flux is considered to be constant as mentioned above, so with the increase in load current the speed slightly falls due to increase in voltage drop in armature. Since voltage drop in armature at full load is very small as compared to applied voltage so drop in speed from no-load to full load is very small and for all practical purposes the shunt motor is taken as a constant speed motor

Torque – Current Characteristic of a dc Shunt Motor : From the expression for the torque of a dc motor, T α Ø Ia , the torque is directly proportional to the product of flux per pole and the armature current.

In differential compound wound motors, the series field winding is connected in such away that the series field opposes the shunt field while in cumulative compound wound motor series field helps the shunt field.

MEANING OF SPEED CONTROL:

Speed control means intentional change of the drive speed to a value required for performing the specific work process. The concept of speed control or adjustment should not be taken to include the natural change in speed which occurs due to change in load on the drive shaft. Speed can be controlled manually by operator or by some automatic control device.

Since in this method of speed control the flux can only be reduced (not increased) so the speed only above the normal one can be obtained.

**POWER LOSSES IN A DC MOTOR
**

The basic function of dc motor is to convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. Whole of the input energy is not converted into useful output energy but a part of the input energy is converted into heat and the same is lost. The basic power equation for a motor is

P input = P output + P losses

ARMATURE REACTION

By armature reaction is meant the effect of magnetic field set up by armature current on the distribution of flux under main poles. The armature magnetic field has two effects: (i) It demagnetises or weakens the main flux and (ii) It cross-magnetises or distorts it.

APPLICATION OF DC MOTORS

1. Application of DC Series Motors: As observed from the different characteristics for dc series motor, these motors are suitable where high starting torque is required such as , electric traction, Hoists, trolleys, cranes, gears drives. DC Series motors have dangerously high speed at no-loads. So these motors are not suitable for the services where the load may be entirely removed and also these motors are not suitable for belts drives.

2. Application of DC Shunt Motors: As observed from the different characteristics for dc shunt motors, these motors have almost constant speed and due to this feature these motors are suitable where constant speed is required in wide range of load such as, lathe machines, milling machines, conveyors line shafts etc. These are also useful where medium starting torque is required such as boring machines, blowers, fans, conveyors centrifugal pumps, shapers, spinning and weaving machines, machine tools, printing presses DC shunt motors are not suitable for use with flywheel or with fluctuating loads services.

3. Application of DC cumulative Compound Motors: As observed from the different characteristics for dc cumulative compound motors, these motors are used in driving machines which are subjected to sudden applications of heavy loads such as occur in rolling mills, punching and shearing machines, lifts, minehoist. These motors are also used where high starting torque is required but series motors cannot be employed conveniently such as cranes and elevators. These motors are not suitable for applications requiring adjustable speed for field control

4. Application of DC differential Compound

Wound Motors:

In differential compound wound motors, since series field opposes the shunt field, the resultant flux decreases with the increase in load; thus the machine runs at a higher speed than it would do as a shunt motor. The decrease in flux with the increase in load causes the torque to be less than that of a shunt motor. So such motors are rarely used in practice as the differential arrangement causes difficulties during overloads and starting. 115
