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 …
