## What increases the speed of a DC motor?

**Increasing the armature voltage** increases the speed. Increasing the armature current (by increasing the mechanical load) decreases the speed. Reducing the field current will increase the speed.

## What are the two factors controlling the speed of a DC motor?

Thus, the speed of a DC motor can control in three ways: By **varying the flux**, and by varying the current through field winding. By varying the armature voltage, and the armature resistance. Through the supply voltage.

## What increases the speed of a motor?

Increasing the speed can be achieved by **increasing the supply frequency** as the speed and frequency are directly proportional; however, there are two constraints. The first is the saturation of the magnetic circuit, but this issue can be significantly avoided by keeping the V/f ratio constant.

## What is speed of DC motor?

DC controls adjust speed by varying the voltage sent to the motor (this differs from AC motor controls which adjust the line frequency to the motor). Typical no load or synchronous speeds for an AC fractional horsepower motor are 1800 or 3600 rpm, and **1000-5000 rpm for DC fractional hp motors**.

## How do you slow down a DC motor?

Most DC motors can be slowed down by **reducing the supply level of power, Volts, lower volts and resulting less amps**, will create less electrical field and will slow motor down. For more gradual speed control there are electronic solutions that are called PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) controllers or Mosfet H bridges.

## How can I reduce the speed of a 12v DC motor?

**A couple of things you can do:**

- Use gears to change ratio of speed, which is what you’re going to do. …
- Use a stepper motor, which are commonly used for high-torque, low RPM applications.
- Find some sort of PWM control circuit to slow it down, although you probably won’t be able to get it down to 5-10RPM.

## What are three ways to increase the speed of a motor?

To speed up an induction motor, you could 1) reduce the load on it (may increase speed 2 or 3%. 2) **increase the frequency of the supply power** 3) re-wind the stator to have fewer pole pairs.
