  • SDES Magnetization Characteristics of a D.C. Shunt GeneratorAim: To draw the magnetization characteristics of a DC shunt generator to determine thecritical resistance (Rc) and critical speed (Nc).Name Plate Details:Motor GeneratorPower = KW Power = KWArmature voltage = volts Speed = rpmField voltage = volts Armature voltage = voltsField current = amps Armature current = ampsSpeed = rpm Field voltage = voltsArmature current = amps Field current = ampsWound = Shunt Wound = ShuntApparatus Required:S no Apparatus Type Range Quantity1 Rheostat Wire wound 2A/200Ω 22 Ammeter Moving coil 0-2A 13 Volt meter Moving coil 0-300V 24 Tachometer Digital 0-10000 rpm 1Theory:Magnetization Curve: The graph between the field current and corresponding flux per pole iscalled the magnetization characteristic of the machine. This is same as B-H curve of the materialused for the pole construction. In a d.c. generator, for any given speed, the induced e.m.f in the armature is directlyproportional to the flux per pole. ZN P Eg = X 60 A Where, Φ is the flux per pole in Weber’s, Z is the no. of conductors in the armature, N isthe speed of the shaft in rpm, P is the no. of poles and A is the no .of parallel paths.

  • SDESOpen – Circuit Characteristics: The armature is driven at a constant speed and the field current is increased graduallyfrom zero to its rated value. The terminal voltage (VL) at no-load condition is measured atdifferent If values. The graph, VL vs. If is called open-circuit characteristic. VL differs from Egdue to (a) Armature reaction (b) voltage drop in the armature circuit. Ia is very small at no-loadcondition, these effects are negligible. Hence, VL = Eg at no-load condition. Thus, the opencircuit characteristic is same as magnetization curve.As shown in the figureCritical Field Resistance (RC): Critical Field Resistance is defined as the maximum field circuit resistance at whichthe shunt generator would just excite at any given speed. At this value the generator will justexcites. If the field circuit resistance is increased beyond this value, the generator will fail toexcite. Rc is given by initial slope value of the O.C.C. curve in the linear region (AB) passingthrough the origin for the speed at which data is obtained. If the field circuit resistance (Rf) is increased to RC, the machine fail to excite and noe.m.f. is induced in the generator. For exiting the generator, Rf < RC.Critical Speed: For any given field circuit resistance, the speed above which the generator builds upan appreciable voltage is called critical speed. As E α N, the value of critical speed, Nc can be given as Nc = (B/A)*NE&E LAB Page 20

  • SDES Swinburne’s TestAim: To pre-determine the efficiency of a D.C. shunt machine considering it as a generatoror as a motor by performing Swinburne’s test on it.Name plate details: MotorPower = hp Speed = rpmArmature voltage = volts Field voltage = voltsArmature current = amps Field current = ampsApparatus Required:SL NO Apparatus Type Range Quantity1 Voltmeter Moving coil 0-300V 12 Ammeter Moving coil 0-2A 13 Ammeter Moving coil 0-20A 14 Rheostat Wire wound 1.5/ 300 Ω 15 Tachometer Digital (0-10000 )rpm 1Theory: Testing of D.C .machines can be divided into three methods: (i) direct, (ii) Regenerativeand (iii) indirect. Swinburne’s Test is an indirect method of testing a dc machine. In this method, theconstant losses of the D.C. machine are calculated at no-load. Hence, its efficiency either asmotor or as a generator can be pre-determined. In this method, the power requirement is verysmall. Hence, this method can be used to pre-determine the efficiency of higher capacity dcmachines as a motor and as a generator.Disadvantages: (i) Efficiency at actual load is not accurately known (ii) Temperature rise on load is not known and (iii) Sparking at commutator on load is not known.Power input at No-load = Constant losses + Armature copper losses (which is negligible)Power input at No-load = Constant lossesPower input = Va Ia + Vf IfE&E LAB Page 24

  • SDESLosses in a DC machine: The losses in a D.C. machine can be divided as 1) Constant losses 2) Variable losses,which changes with the load.Constant losses:Mechanical Losses: Friction and Wind age losses are called mechanical losses. They depend upon the speed.A dc shunt machine is basically a constant speed machine both as a generator and as a motor.Thus, the mechanical losses are constant.Iron Losses: For a dc shunt machine, the field current hence the flux per pole is constant (Neglectingthe armature reaction which reduces the net flux in the air gap). Hence, hysteresis and eddycurrent losses (which are also called as iron losses) remains constant.Field Copper Losses: Under normal operating conditions of a D.C. shunt machine, the field current remainsconstant. Thus, power received by the field circuit (which is consumed as field copper losses) isconstant.Constant losses in a dc shunt machine=Mechanical + losses Iron losses+ Field cu. Losses.Variable Losses: The power lost in the armature circuit of a dc machine increases with the increase in load.Thus, the armature copper loss is called as variable losses.Procedure:  Note down the ratings of the dc shunt motor  Connect the circuit as shown in the diagram.  Keep motor field rheostat in minimum resistance position.  Now start the motor using a 3-point starter  Adjust the motor field rheostat to bring the motor speed to rated value.  Run the machine as a motor at no-load.  Note down the voltage and current readings of the motor and generator at no-load.  Calculate the efficiency of the machine working as motor and generator after taking the values of field and armature circuit resistances.E&E LAB Page 26

  • SDESConclusion:  The power required to conduct the test is very less as compared to the direct loading test.  Constant losses are calculated from this method are used to compute the efficiency of a dc machine as a generator and as a motor without actually loading it. Hence, this is an economic methodRESULT:E&E LAB Page 28

It is a simple method of measuring motoroutput, speed and efficiency etc., at different load conditions A rope is would round the pulleyand its two ends are attached to two spring balances S1 andS2. The tensions provided by thespring balances S1 and S2 are T1 and T2 the tensions of the rope can be adjusted with the help ofswivels. The force acting tangentially on the pulley is equal to the difference between the readingsof the two spring balances in kg- force. The induced voltage Eb =V-Ia Ra and Eb= KΦN, Thus, KΦ=Eb /NV= applied voltage, Ia =armature current, Ra =Armature resistance.

The direction of rotation can be explained with thehelp of Fleming’s left hand principle. A counter emf or back emf (Eb) is induced in the armature conductors while the armature(rotor) rotating in the magnetic field. The direction of the induced emf can be explained with thehelp of Fleming’s right hand principle and Lenz’s law. The is induced emf is also called as backemf Eb. ZN P The equation of the motor is V= Eb + Ia Ra Where Eb = X 60 A V  Eb Ia = Ra The value of Eb is zero while starting the motor. Hence the voltage across the armature has tobe increase gradually. 2 N The power developed in the rotor (armature) = EbIa = T ω Where ω = 60 In a dc motor T α Φ Ia where Φ= Flux produced by the shunt field per pole Ia = Armature current The torque developed in the motor is opposed by the torques due to (a) Friction and windage(b) eddy currents and hysterisis and (c) mechanical load connected at the shaft. The motor runs ata stable speed when the developed torque and resisting torques balance each other. Let a small load be increased, then the resisting torque increases and motor speed falls. The V  Ebback emf reduces due to the fall in the speed. Hence, the armature current increases (Ia = ) RaE&E LAB Page 32
  • SDES If Φ is assumed constant, (i.e. neglecting the armature reaction) the torque developed by themot or increases and a new stable speed is reached at which the developed torque equals theresisting torque. Armature Current ~ Speed characteristics: The armature current Ia increases with increase in the load at the shaft. Hence Ia Ra dropincreases and counter emf (Eb) decreases. Eb = V-IaRa where Ra is armature resistance and Eb α ΦN, if Φ is constant in the shunt motorby neglecting the armature reaction; the speed falls as Eb falls. In a dc motor Ra is very small, hence Ia Ra is a small value and fall in Eb with increase in loadis small. Thus, the speed falls slightly as Ia increases.Armature current ~ Torque characteristics: If Φ is constant, developed torque increases with increase in Ia T= KΦ Ia In actual condition, Φ slightly falls withy increase in Ia due to the effect of armature reaction.Armature current ~ induced emf (back emf): Induced emf (back emf Eb ) falls slightly with increase in Ia as per the equation Eb =V-Ia RaArmature current ~ Flux per pole: The resultant Flux per pole decreases with the increase in Ia due to the effect of armaturereact ion and amp-turns of the file d is constant at any load.Torque ~ Speed: With increase in load, Ia and Ta increases since the shunt field Φ is constant. The fall in speed Ebis very small as the Ia Ra drop is very small compared to V.

The transformer works on the principle of electromagnetic induction between twowindings placed on a common magnetic circuit. The two windings are electrically insulatedfrom each other and also from the core. The approximate equivalent circuit of the transformer isshown in figure –2 The losses in transformer are (i) magnetic losses and ohmic losses or copper losses. Thesecan be determined by performing (a) open circuit test and given transformer can bepredetermined at any given load (b) short circuit test. From the above tests, the efficiency andvoltage regulation of a given transformer can be predetermined at any given load. The powerconsumed during these tests is very small compared to that in a load test. Another parting whatfollows, LV side parameters are denoted by suffix 1 and HV side parameters by suffix 2OPEN CIRCUIT TEST;In the open circuit test, HV side is usually kept open and supply given to the LV side, asShown in the figure; when rated voltage is applied to the LV side, the ammeter reads the no-loadcurrent I0 is 2 to 5% of full load current.

  • SDES This test is performed to determine t he equivalent resistance and leakage reactance ofthe transformer and copper losses at full-load condition. In this test, usually LV side is shorted and meters are connected on HV side. A variable lowvoltage is applied to the HV winding with the help of an auto-transformer. This voltage is variedtill the rated current flows in the HV side and LV side. The voltage applied is 5 to 10 percentageof rated voltage, while the rated current flows in the windings. The wattmeter indicated the fullload copper losses and core losses at Vsc. But the core losses at this low voltage are negligible ascompared to the iron losses at the rate voltage. 2 2 Hence, Wsc = Full load copper losses = I 2 R2eq = I 2R02 2 2 Z02 = Vsc / Isc and X02 = Z 02 – R 02 Req2 and Xeq2 are referred to HV side.
