The applications of shunt DC motor include the following. These motors are used wherever stable speed is required. This kind of DC motor can be used in Centrifugal Pumps, Lifts, Weaving Machine, Lathe Machines, Blowers, Fans, Conveyors, Spinning machines, etc.
What is the difference between a DC shunt and a series motor?
A series motor respond by decreasing its speed with small increase in current for a given load torque. A shunt motor holds its speed nearly constant with large increase in input current for same amount of load torque.
What is the main advantage of a shunt DC motor?
Advantages of Dc shunt motor:
The power supply of the DC motor is any way cheap. Shunt would motor able to runs at a predetermined speed. The speed of a dc shunt motor is sufficiently constant. Direct current machines can use for heavy industrial applications where the torque and speed wider range.
What are the characteristics of DC shunt motor?
Characteristics of a DC Shunt Motor:
- Speed-Armature Current Characteristic: …
- Torque-Armature Current Characteristic: …
- Speed-Torque Characteristic: …
- Break in Field Circuit of a DC Motor:
What will happen when DC shunt motor is started with load?
Answer : Starting current will be very high so motor will take more current from supply. It may damage the armature winding.
