DC Machines Fundamentals
Stator: is the stationary part of the machine. The stator carries a field winding that is used to produce the required magnetic field by DC excitation. Rotor (Armature): is the rotating part of the machine. The rotor carries a distributed winding, and is the winding where the e.m.f. is induced. Field winding: Is wound on the stator poles to produce magnetic field (flux) in the air gap. Armature winding: Is composed of coils placed in the armature slots. Commutator: Is composed of copper bars, insulated from each other. The armature winding is connected to the commutator. Brush: Is placed against the commutator surface. Brush is used to connect the armature winding to external circuit through commutator

DC Machines Fundamentals
In DC machines, conversion of energy from electrical to mechanical form or vice versa results from the following two electromagnetic phenomena Generator action: An e.m.f. (voltage) is induced in a conductor if it moves through a magnetic field. Motor action: A force is induced in a conductor that has a current going through it and placed in a magnetic field Any DC machine can act either as a generator or as a motor.

DC Machines Equivalent Circuit
The equivalent/modelling circuit of DC machine has two components: Armature circuit: It can be represented by a voltage source and a resistance connected in series (the armature resistance). The armature winding has a resistance, RA. The field circuit: It is represented by a winding that generates the magnetic field and a resistance connected in series. The field winding has resistance RF.

DC Motor

Basic Operation of DC Motor

Classification of DC Motor
1. Separately Excited DC Motor Field and armature windings are either connected separate. 2. Shunt DC Motor Field and armature windings are either connected in parallel. 3. Series DC Motor Field and armature windings are connected in series. 4. Compound DC Motor Has both shunt and series field so it combines features of series and shunt motors.

Equivalent Circuit of a DC Motor
Armature circuit - voltage source, EA and a resistor, RA. The field coils, which produce the magnetic flux are represented by inductor, LF and resistor, RF. The separate resistor, Radj represents an external variable resistor used to control the amount of current in the field circuit. Basically it lumped together with Rf and called Rf

3. Series DC Motor 4. Compound DC Motor

Important terms in DC motor equivalent circuit
VT – supply voltage EA – internal generated voltage/back e.m.f. RA – armature resistance RF – field/shunt resistance RS – series resistance IL – load current IF – field current IA – armature current n – speed

Flux, ϕ produce proportional to the current produce If Constant field excitation, means; if1 = if2 or constant flux; 1 = 2

Example 1 A 250 V, DC shunt motor takes a line current of 20 A. Resistance of shunt field winding is 200 Ω and resistance of the armature is 0.3 Ω. Find the armature current, IA and the back e.m.f., EA.

Solution Given parameters: Terminal voltage, VT = 250 V
Field resistance, RF = 200 Ω Armature resistance, RA = 0.3 Ω Line current, IL = 20 A Figure 1

Solution (cont..) the field current, the armature current,
VT = EA + IARA the back e.m.f., EA = VT – IARA = 250 V – (18.75)(0.3) = V

Example 2 A 50hp, 250 V, 1200 rpm DC shunt motor with compensating windings has an armature resistance (including the brushes, compensating windings, and interpoles) of 0.06 Ω. Its field circuit has a total resistance Radj + RF of 50 Ω, which produces a no-load speed of 1200 rpm. There are 1200 turns per pole on the shunt field winding.

Example 2 (cont..) Find the speed of this motor when its input current is 100 A. Find the speed of this motor when its input current is 200 A. Find the speed of this motor when its input current is 300 A.

Solution Given quantities: Terminal voltage, VT = 250 V
Field resistance, RF = 50 Ω Armature resistance, RA = 0.06 Ω Initial speed, n1 = 1200 r/min Figure 2

Example 3 The motor in Example 2 is now connected in separately excited circuit as shown in Figure 3. The motor is initially running at speed, n = 1103 r/min with VA = 250 V and IA = 120 A, while supplying a constant-torque load. If VA is reduced to 200 V, determine i). the internal generated voltage, EA ii). the final speed of this motor, n2

Example 3 (cont..) Figure 3

Solution Given quantities Initial line current, IL = IA = 120 A
Initial armature voltage, VA = 250 V Armature resistance, RA = 0.06 Ω Initial speed, n1 = 1103 r/min

Solution (cont..) i) The internal generated voltage EA = VT - IARA
= 250 V – (120 A)(0.06 Ω) = 250 V – 7.2 V = V

Solution (cont..) ii) Use KVL to find EA2 EA2 = VT - IA2RA
Since the torque and the flux is constant, IA is constant. This yields a voltage of: EA2 = 200 V – (120 A)(0.06 Ω) = 200 V – 7.2 V = V

Solution (cont..) The final speed of this motor

Example 4 A DC series motor is running with a speed of 800 r/min while taking a current of 20 A from the supply. If the load is changed such that the current drawn by the motor is increased to 55 A, calculate the speed of the motor on new load. The armature and series field winding resistances are 0.2 Ω and 0.3 Ω respectively. Assume the flux produced is proportional to the current. Assume supply voltage as 200 V.

Solution Given quantities Supply voltage, VT = 200 V
Armature resistance, RA = 0.2 Ω Series resistance, RS = 0.3 Ω Initial speed, n1 = 800 r/min Initial armature current, Ia1 = IL1 = 20 A Figure 4

The speed of the motor on new load
Solution (cont..) When the armature current increased, Ia2 = 55 A, the back emf EA2 = V – Ia2 (RA + RS) = 200 – 55( ) = 225 V The speed of the motor on new load

Solution (cont..) For initial load, the armature current, Ia1 = 20 A and the speed n1 = 800 r/min V = EA1 + Ia1 (RA + RS) The back e.m.f. at initial speed EA1 = V - Ia1 (RA + RS) = 200 – 20( ) = 190 V

DC Generator

Generating of an AC Voltage
The voltage generated in any DC generator inherently alternating and only becomes DC after it has been rectified by the commutator

Armature windings The armature windings are usually former-wound. This are first wound in the form of flat rectangular coils and are then puller. Various conductors of the coils are insulated each other. The conductors are placed in the armature slots which are lined with tough insulating material. This slot insulation is folded over above the armature conductors placed in the slot and is secured in place by special hard wooden or fiber wedges.

Generated or back e.m.f. of DC Generator
General form of generated e.m.f., Φ = flux/pole (Weber) Z = total number of armature conductors = number of slots x number of conductor/slot P = number of poles A = number of parallel paths in armature [A = 2 (for wave winding), A = P (for lap winding)] N = armature rotation (rpm) E = e.m.f. induced in any parallel path in armature

Classification of DC Generator
1. Separately Excited DC Generator Field and armature windings are either connected separate. 2. Shunt DC Generator Field and armature windings are either connected in parallel. 3. Series DC Generator Field and armature windings are connected in series. 4. Compound DC Generator Has both shunt and series field so it combines features of series and shunt motors.

Solution (cont..) EA = VT + IA RA = 250V + (22.5)(0.22) = 254.95V
The field current, The load current, The armature current, IA = IL + IF = 20A + 2.5A = 22.5A The induced e.m.f., EA = VT + IA RA = 250V + (22.5)(0.22) = V

Power flow and losses in DC machines
DC generators take in mechanical power and produce electric power while DC motors take in electric power and produce mechanical power Efficiency

The losses that occur in DC machine can be divided into 5 categories
Copper losses (I2R) Brush losses Core losses Mechanical losses Stray load losses Ia = armature current If = field current Ra = armature resistance Rf = field resistance

Power Losses Core losses – Hysteresis losses and Eddy current losses
Mechanical losses – The losses that associated with mechanical effects. Two basic types of mechanical losses: Friction & Windage. Friction losses caused by the friction of the bearings in the machine. Windage are caused by the friction between the moving parts of the machine and the air inside the motor casing’s Stray losses (Miscellaneous losses) – Cannot placed in one of the previous categories.

AC Machine Fundamentals & Induction Machines

INDUCTION MACHINE The induction machine is the most rugged and the most widely used machine in industry. Like dc machine, the induction machine has a stator and a rotor mounted on bearings and separated from the stator by an air gap. However, in the induction machine both stator winding and rotor winding carry alternating currents. The induction machine can operate both as a motor and as generator As motors, they have many advantages. They are rugged, relatively inexpensive and require very little maintenance. They range in size from a few watts to about 10,000 hp. The speed of an induction motor is nearly but not quite constant, dropping only a few percent in going from no load to full load.

The main disadvantages of induction motors are
The speed is not easily controlled. The starting current may be five to eight times full-load current. The power factor is low and lagging when the machine is lightly loaded

INDUCTION MOTOR CONSTRUCTION
Two different types of induction motor which can be placed in stator a) squirrel cage rotor b) wound rotor Squirrel Cage rotor Wound rotor

Types of rotor Squirrel cage rotor – consists of conducting bars embedded in slots in the rotor magnetic core and these bars are short circuited at each end by conducting end rings. The rotor bars and the rings are shaped like squirrel cage. Wound rotor – carries three windings similar to the stator windings. The terminals of the rotor windings are connected to the insulated slip rings mounted on the rotor shaft. Carbon brushes bearing on these rings make the rotor terminals available to the user of the machine. For steady state operation, these terminals are short circuited.

Squirrel Cage Rotor

Wound Rotor Most motors use the squirrel-cage rotor because of the robust and maintenance-free construction. However, large, older motors use a wound rotor with three phase windings placed in the rotor slots. The windings are connected in a three-wire wye. The ends of the windings are connected to three slip rings. Resistors or power supplies are connected to the slip rings through brushes for reduction of starting current and speed control

Induction Motor Components

BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPT
A single/three phase set of voltages has been applied to the stator, and single/three phase set of stator currents is flowing. These produce a magnetic field Bs, which is rotating in a counterclockwise direction . The speed of the magnetic field’s rotation is

THE CONCEPT OF ROTOR SLIP
The voltage induced in a rotor depends on the speed of the rotor relative to the magnetic field. Slip speed is defined as the difference between synchronous speed and rotor speed where nslip = slip speed of the machine nsync = speed of the magnetic fields nm = mechanical shaft speed of motor Slip is the relative speed expressed on a per unit or a percentage basis

In term angular velocity (radians per second, rps)
If the rotor turns at synchronous speed, s = 0 while if the rotor is stationary/standstill, s = 1

THE ELECTRICAL FREQUENCY CONCEPT
Like a transformer, the primary (stator) induces a voltage in the secondary (rotor) but unlike a transformer, the secondary frequency is not necessary the same as the primary frequency. If the rotor of a motor is locked, then the rotor will have same frequency as the stator. The rotor frequency can be expressed

Example A 208V, 10hp, 4 pole, 60Hz, Y connected induction motor has full load slip of 5%. Calculate, synchronous speed, nsync (Ans:1800rpm) rotor speed, nm (Ans: 1710rpm) rotor frequency, fr at the rated load (Ans: 3 Hz) Shaft torque at the rated load (Ans: 41.7Nm)

The derivation of the induction motor induced-torque equation
The induced torque in induction motor is Air gap power Total Air gap power

Assignment 6.5 A two pole, 50hz induction motor supplies 15kW to a load at speed 2950 rpm. What is the motor’s slip? (Ans:1.67%) What is the induced torque in the motor in Nm under these conditions? (48.6Nm) What will the operating speed of the motor be if its torque is doubled? (2900 rpm) How much power will be supplied by the motor when the torque is doubled? (29.5kW)

Speed control of induction motors
Induction motor speed control by pole changing Speed control by changing the line frequency Speed control by changing the line voltage Speed control by changing the rotor resistance
