Overview of Direct Current Machines
A machine is an electromechanical energy conversion device which convert the form of energy i.e. from mechanical to electrical or from electrical to mechanical energy Depending upon the working of the machine ,the electromechanical energy conversion device may be named as generator or motor.

Overview of Direct Current Machines

DC Generator A dc generator is a machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy (dc voltage and current) by using the principle of magnetic induction. Principle of magnetic induction in DC machine

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF A DC GENERATOR
Figure show an elementary coil rotating in a stationary magnetic field between a pair of magnetic poles. Let it rotated in anticlockwise direction at an angular velocity of ω radian per sec, by some prime-mover giving the generator a mechanical torque Tm

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF A DC GENERATOR
The coil side or conductors cut the magnetic lines of force and hence an emf is induced in the coil. The coil is further connected to an external resistance r, therefore current ‘i’ flow through the coil side as well as through the load resistance r The direction of current is marked on the coil sides. Now the second action start, i.e. a current carrying coil or conductor is placed in the magnetic field and hence the conductor will experience a force or torque Te the direction of torque will be opposing to the driving torque Tm Tm = Te+Tf ωTm = ωTe+ωTf where ωTm = mechanical input power ωTe = mechanical power available for conversion into electrical power ωTf = mechanical power lost due to friction

DC Motor An dc motor is a machine that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy by supplying a dc power (voltage and current).

WORKING PRINCIPLE OF A MOTOR
Fig shows a coil placed in a constant stationary magnetic field. the resistance r is removed and in place of this a battery is connected across the coil. Now the current ‘i’ will start flowing through the coil. the current carrying conductor produces a magnetic field fr

The field fr tries to come in line with the main field Fm.
Thus an electromagnetic torque Te is developed in the coil is anticlockwise direction. therefore coil start rotating in anticlockwise direction say at an angular speed ‘ω’ rad/sec Now again the second action start, when the coil moves in the magnetic field, flux is cut by the conductors and hence an emf is induced in them. The direction of this induced emf will be opposing the cause due to which the emf is induced. Thus the induced emf will be opposing the supply voltage v and the current in the coil will flow due to the difference between v and e. if r is the resistance of the coil. Then applied voltage V = e + ir Multiplying both side by ‘i’ in equation we get Vi = e.i.+ i2r Here Vi = electrical power input to the machine e.i. = electrical power available for conversion into mechanical power I2r = power lost due to resistance of the coil.

CONSTRUCTION Main parts of dc machine are: Field magnet frame or yoke
Pole cores and pole shoes Pole coil or field coils Armature core Armature winding Commutator Brushes Brush holder Bearing Shaft

FIELD MAGNET FRAME OR YOKE
The yoke or outer frame is the covering provided to dc generator and it serves the following purpose It provides a mechanical support for the poles. It act as a protective cover against mechanical damage It provide a passage for the magnetic flux produced by the poles.

POLE CORE AND POLE SHOES
The pole core itself may be made of solid piece of cast iron or cast steel, but pole shoe is laminated and is screwed to the pole face by means of counter sunk screw. The pole cores may be made of thin laminations of steel, riveted together. This type of pole is held in position with the frame by means of bolts. The pole shoe serves the two purpose as under. It support the pole coils. Being of larger cross section, it spread the flux and also reduces the reluctance of the magnetic path.

ARMATURE The armature core is cylindrical in shape. It is rotating part of the machine Its body is made up of soft iron stamping or laminations to reduce the eddy current losses. The lamination are keyed to the shaft. These are insulated from each other by varnish. At the outer periphery slots are cut. The armature conductors (winding)are placed in these slots The armature core serves the following purpose It provides a path of low reluctance to the magnetic flux. It house armature conductors DC machine armature

ARMATURE WINDINGS The armature coil are usually former wound. The conductor are placed in the armature slots which are lined with tough insulating material. The slot insulation is folded over the armature conductors placed in the slots and is secured firmly by bamboo or fiber wedges. The armature winding are usually of conductors covered with single cotton cover, double cotton cover or enameled wire On the basis of connection these are of two types: Lap winding Wave winding

ARMATURE WINDINGS Lap Wound Armatures
are used in machines designed for low voltage and high current armatures are constructed with large wire because of high current Eg: - are used is in the starter motor of almost all automobiles The windings of a lap wound armature are connected in parallel. This permits the current capacity of each winding to be added and provides a higher operating current No of current path, C=2p ; p=no of poles Lap wound armatures

ARMATURE WINDINGS (Cont)
Wave Wound Armatures are used in machines designed for high voltage and low current their windings connected in series When the windings are connected in series, the voltage of each winding adds, but the current capacity remains the same are used is in the small generator No of current path, C=2 Wave wound armatures

ARMATURE WINDINGS (Cont)

FIELD WINDINGS Most dc machines use wound electromagnets to provide the magnetic field. When current passed through these coils, they electromagnetise the poles which produce the necessary flux which is cut by the armature conductors when in motion. Two types of field windings are used : series field shunt field

FIELD WINDINGS (Cont) Series field windings
are so named because they are connected in series with the armature are made with relatively few windings turns of very large wire and have a very low resistance usually found in large horsepower machines wound with square or rectangular wire. The use of square wire permits the windings to be laid closer together, which increases the number of turns that can be wound in a particular space Square and rectangular wire can also be made physically smaller than round wire and still contain the same surface area Square wire contains more surface than round wire Square wire permits more turns than round wire in the same area

FIELD WINDINGS (Cont) Shunt field windings
is constructed with relatively many turns of small wire, thus, it has a much higher resistance than the series field. is intended to be connected in parallel with, or shunt, the armature. high resistance is used to limit current flow through the field.

Both series and shunt field windings are contained in each pole piece
FIELD WINDINGS (Cont) When a DC machine uses both series and shunt fields, each pole piece will contain both windings. The windings are wound on the pole pieces in such a manner that when current flows through the winding it will produce alternate magnetic polarities. Both series and shunt field windings are contained in each pole piece S – series field F – shunt field

MACHINE WINDINGS OVERVIEW

COMMUTATOR The commutator is cylindrical in structure and is built up of wedge shaped hard drawn copper segments. The segment are insulated from each other by a thin sheet of high quality mica. To prevent them from flying out under the action of centrifugal forces, the segments are provided with “v”-grooves, which are insulated by conical mica-nite ring. The function of the commutator is to facilitate the collection of current from the armature and to rectify the A.C. induced in the armature into D.C.

BRUSH HOLDER AND BRUSHES
The function of brushes is to collect current from the commutator and supply it to the external load circuit. These are usually made of carbon and are rectangular in shapes. These brushes are housed in brush holders. These are held in position under spring tension , the pressure of the spring can be adjusted by altering the position of lever in the notches. Copper brushes are only used for machine delivering large current at low voltages.

BEARING These are supported in end cover, because of reliability, ball bearing are usually employed . Though for heavy duty, roller bearing are employed. These are used to reduce friction and have less wear and tear.

SHAFT The material of the shaft is mild steel . It is used to transfer mechanical power from or to the machine. The rotating parts e.g. Armature, commutator are mounted to the shaft.

Principle operation of Generator
Whenever a conductor is moved within a magnetic field in such a way that the conductor cuts across magnetic lines of flux, voltage is generated in the conductor. The AMOUNT of voltage generated depends on: the strength of the magnetic field, the angle at which the conductor cuts the magnetic field, the speed at which the conductor is moved, and the length of the conductor within the magnetic field

Principle of operation (Cont)
The POLARITY of the voltage depends on the direction of the magnetic lines of flux and the direction of movement of the conductor. To determine the direction of current in a given situation, the LEFT-HAND RULE FOR GENERATORS is used. thumb in the direction the conductor is being moved forefinger in the direction of magnetic flux (from north to south) middle finger will then point in the direction of current flow in an external circuit to which the voltage is applied Left Hand Rules

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR
The simplest elementary generator that can be built is an ac generator. Basic generating principles are most easily explained through the use of the elementary ac generator. For this reason, the ac generator will be discussed first. The dc generator will be discussed later. An elementary generator consists of a wire loop mounted on the shaft, so that it can be rotated in a stationary magnetic field. This will produce an induced emf in the loop. Sliding contacts (brushes) connect the loop to an external circuit load in order to pick up or use the induced emf. Elementary Generator

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR (Cont)
The pole pieces (marked N and S) provide the magnetic field. The pole pieces are shaped and positioned as shown to concentrate the magnetic field as close as possible to the wire loop. The loop of wire that rotates through the field is called the ARMATURE. The ends of the armature loop are connected to rings called SLIP RINGS. They rotate with the armature. The brushes, usually made of carbon, with wires attached to them, ride against the rings. The generated voltage appears across these brushes.

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR (A)
An end view of the shaft and wire loop is shown. At this particular instant, the loop of wire (the black and white conductors of the loop) is parallel to the magnetic lines of flux, and no cutting action is taking place. Since the lines of flux are not being cut by the loop, no emf is induced in the conductors, and the meter at this position indicates zero. This position is called the NEUTRAL PLANE. 00 Position (Neutral Plane)

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR (B)
The shaft has been turned 900 clockwise, the conductors cut through more and more lines of flux, and voltage is induced in the conductor. At a continually increasing angle , the induced emf in the conductors builds up from zero to a maximum value or peak value. Observe that from 00 to 900, the black conductor cuts DOWN through the field. At the same time the white conductor cuts UP through the field. The induced emfs in the conductors are series-adding. This means the resultant voltage across the brushes (the terminal voltage) is the sum of the two induced voltages. The meter at position B reads maximum value. 900 Position

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR (c)
After another 900 of rotation, the loop has completed 1800 of rotation and is again parallel to the lines of flux. As the loop was turned, the voltage decreased until it again reached zero. Note that : From 00 to 1800 the conductors of the armature loop have been moving in the same direction through the magnetic field. Therefore, the polarity of the induced voltage has remained the same 1800 Position

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR (D)
As the loop continues to turn, the conductors again cut the lines of magnetic flux. This time, however, the conductor that previously cut through the flux lines of the south magnetic field is cutting the lines of the north magnetic field, and vice-versa. Since the conductors are cutting the flux lines of opposite magnetic polarity, the polarity of the induced voltage reverses. After 270' of rotation, the loop has rotated to the position shown, and the maximum terminal voltage will be the same as it was from A to C except that the polarity is reversed. 2700 Position

THE ELEMENTARY GENERATOR (A)
After another 900 of rotation, the loop has completed one rotation of 3600 and returned to its starting position. The voltage decreased from its negative peak back to zero. Notice that the voltage produced in the armature is an alternating polarity. The voltage produced in all rotating armatures is alternating voltage. 3600 Position

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR
Since DC generators must produce DC current instead of AC current, a device must be used to change the AC voltage produced in the armature windings into DC voltage. This job is performed by the commutator. The commutator is constructed from a copper ring split into segments with insulating material between the segments (See next page). Brushes riding against the commutator segments carry the power to the outside circuit. The commutator in a dc generator replaces the slip rings of the ac generator. This is the main difference in their construction. The commutator mechanically reverses the armature loop connections to the external circuit.

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR (Armature)
The armature has an axle, and the commutator is attached to the axle. In the diagram to the right, you can see three different views of the same armature: front, side and end-on. In the end-on view, the winding is eliminated to make the commutator more obvious. You can see that the commutator is simply a pair of plates attached to the axle. These plates provide the two connections for the coil of the electromagnet. Armature with commutator view

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR (Commutator & Brushes work together)
The diagram at the right shows how the commutator and brushes work together to let current flow to the electromagnet, and also to flip the direction that the electrons are flowing at just the right moment. The contacts of the commutator are attached to the axle of the electromagnet, so they spin with the magnet. The brushes are just two pieces of springy metal or carbon that make contact with the contacts of the commutator. Through this process the commutator changes the generated ac voltage to a pulsating dc voltage which also known as commutation process. Brushes and commutator

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR
The loop is parallel to the magnetic lines of flux, and no voltage is induced in the loop Note that the brushes make contact with both of the commutator segments at this time. The position is called neutral plane. 00 Position (DC Neutral Plane)

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR
As the loop rotates, the conductors begin to cut through the magnetic lines of flux. The conductor cutting through the south magnetic field is connected to the positive brush, and the conductor cutting through the north magnetic field is connected to the negative brush. Since the loop is cutting lines of flux, a voltage is induced into the loop. After 900 of rotation, the voltage reaches its most positive point. 900 Position (DC)

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR
As the loop continues to rotate, the voltage decreases to zero. After 1800 of rotation, the conductors are again parallel to the lines of flux, and no voltage is induced in the loop. Note that the brushes again make contact with both segments of the commutator at the time when there is no induced voltage in the conductors 1800 Position (DC)

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR
During the next 900 of rotation, the conductors again cut through the magnetic lines of flux. This time, however, the conductor that previously cut through the south magnetic field is now cutting the flux lines of the north field, and vice-versa. . Since these conductors are cutting the lines of flux of opposite magnetic polarities, the polarity of induced voltage is different for each of the conductors. The commutator, however, maintains the correct polarity to each brush. The conductor cutting through the north magnetic field will always be connected to the negative brush, and the conductor cutting through the south field will always be connected to the positive brush. Since the polarity at the brushes has remained constant, the voltage will increase to its peak value in the same direction. 2700 Position (DC)

THE ELEMENTARY DC GENERATOR
As the loop continues to rotate, the induced voltage again decreases to zero when the conductors become parallel to the magnetic lines of flux. Notice that during this 3600 rotation of the loop the polarity of voltage remained the same for both halves of the waveform. This is called rectified DC voltage. The voltage is pulsating. It does turn on and off, but it never reverses polarity. Since the polarity for each brush remains constant, the output voltage is DC. 00 Position (DC Neutral Plane)

The Practical DC Generator
The actual construction and operation of a practical dc generator differs somewhat from our elementary generators Nearly all practical generators use electromagnetic poles instead of the permanent magnets used in our elementary generator The main advantages of using electromagnetic poles are: (1) increased field strength and (2) possible to control the strength of the fields. By varying the input voltage, the field strength is varied. By varying the field strength, the output voltage of the generator can be controlled. Four-pole generator (without armature)

TYPES OF DC GENERATORS Separately Excited Dc generator Self excited
Series generator Shunt Compound

SEPRATELY EXCITED DC GENERATOR
These are generators whose field winding are excited from some external source of supply. The flux produced by the field poles depend upon the value of field current within the unsaturated region of magnetic material of the poles but after saturation the flux remain constant. Relations: Ia = IL Eg = V + IaRa Eg = V + IaRa +2Vb

SELF EXCITED D.C. GENERATOR
These are the generators whose field winding is energized by the current supplied by their own armature Due to some residual magnetism, some of the flux is always present in the poles. When the armature is rotated by means of a prime mover, e.m.f. and hence current is produced. The current passes through the pole coils partly or fully and thus strengthens the residual pole flux. In a self excited dc machine, the field coil may be connected in series with the armature, in parallel with the armature or partly in series and partly in parallel with the armature. load

D.C. SERIES GENERATOR In a d.c. series generator, the field coil are wound with a few turns of thick wire as shown and are connected in series with the armature. There fore the full line current IL or armature current Ia flow through it. Before the machine will excite the external circuit must be closed. Important relation Ise = Ia = IL Eg = V + IaRa + Ise.Rse = V +Ia(Ra + Rse) Power developed in armature Pa = EgIa Power delivered P = V.IL load

DC SHUNT GENERATOR In a dc shunt generator the field coils are wound with a large no. of fine wire and are connected in parallel with the armature as shown in fig. Therefore full terminal voltage is applied across the shunt field. Since the resistance of the shunt field winding is high therefore a small current Ish flows through it. Important relation: Ish = V/Rsh Ia = IL + Ish Eg = V+IaRa+2Vb Power developed in armature, Pa = EgIa Power delivered to the load, P = VIL load

D.C. COMPOUND GENERATOR A compound dc generator is one which has both sets of field winding on each pole. One of them is shunt field winding and the other is a series field winding. The series field winding is connected in series with armature and shunt winding is in parallel with the armature as shown in fig. A compound wound generator may be classified as: Short shunt Long shunt load

D.C. COMPOUND GENERATOR (short shunt)
If the shunt field winding is connected across the armature circuit only, it is called short shunt compound generator.\ Ise = IL Ish = (V+IseRse)/Rsh Eg = V + IaRa +IseRse Power developed in armature Pa = EgIa Power delivered to the load P = VIL

COMPOUND GENERATOR (long shunt )
If the shunt field winding is connected across both the armature and series field winding, it is called long shunt generator. Ise = Ia = IL + Ish Ish = V/Rsh Eg = V + Ia(Ra + Rse) Power developed in armature Pa = Eg.Ia Power delivered to the load P = V.IL

DC MOTOR Separately Excited Dc motor Self excited dc motor
Types of dc motor Series motor Shunt Compound

SEPRATELY EXCITED DC MOTOR
These are motors whose field winding are excited from some external source of supply. Relations: V =Eb + IaRa +2Vb

SELF EXCITED D.C. MOTOR Such types of dc motor are excited from their own armature as shown in fig . Their field and armature winding are connected together as shown

D.C. SERIES MOTOR A dc series wound motor is one in which field winding is connected in series with the armature winding as shown in the fig. The field winding consist of few turns of thick wire of copper. As the field winding is connected in series with the armature so it will carry the entire current drawn by the motor from supply. Important relation Ise = Ia = IL Eb = V – Ia(Ra + Rse)-2Vb Power supplied to the motor= VIL Power developed in armature Pm = power input-cu.losses

DC SHUNT WOUND MOTOR A dc shunt wound motor is one in which field winding is connected in parallel with the armature as shown in fig. The field winding consist of many turns of thin wire of copper. The line current supplied to the motor is divided into two path, one through the shunt field winding and the second through the armature Important relation: Ish = V/Rsh IL = Ia + Ish Eb = V – IaRa-2Vb Power supplied to the motor, P = VIL Power developed = power input – cu. losses

DC COMPOUND WOUND MOTOR
Compound wound motor are classified into two types: Cumulative compound wound motor :Compound wound motor in one is which the field winding are connected in such a way that the direction of flow of current is same in both of the field winding i.e. Фt =Фsh + Ф se When the motor is loaded, its armature draws more current from the line, thus it strengthens the field.

DC COMPOUND WOUND MOTOR
Differential compound motor :Differential compound motor in one is which the field winding are connected in such a way that the direction of flow of current is opposite to each other i.e. Ф t = Ф sh - Ф se When the motor is loaded, its armature draws more current from the line, thus it weakens the field.
