Stepper Motor: Working, Applications & Control

A stepper motor is a motor that divides shaft rotation into discrete distances (steps). Unlike other motors that rotate their shafts when power is applied, stepper motors only move their shafts in small controlled increments called steps. Stepper Motor Applications Stepper motors are used in applications that require precise control …

DC Generator Types | Series Shunt Compound Generators

The three types of DC generators are series-wound, shunt-wound, and compound-wound generators. The difference between the types is based on the relationship of the field windings to the external circuit. Series-Wound DC Generators A series-wound DC generator is a generator that has its field windings connected in series with the …

DC Generator: Parts & Working

DC generators consist of field windings, an armature, a commutator, and brushes

A DC generator is a machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy by means of electromagnetic induction. DC generators operate on the principle that when a coil of wire is rotated in a magnetic field, a voltage is induced in the coil. The amount of voltage induced in the …
