Explain the different types of dc motor with neat sketch.

 DC MOTOR TYPES

 Shunt Wound

 Series Wound

 Compound wound

1. Shunt Motor

 In shunt wound motor the field winding is connected in parallel with armature. The current through the shunt field winding is not the same as the armature current.  Shunt field windings are designed to produce the necessary m.m.f. by means of a relatively large number of turns of wire having high resistance. Therefore, shunt field current is relatively small compared with the armature current 2. Series Motor:

 In series wound motor the field winding is connected in series with the armature. Therefore, series field winding carries the armature current. Since the current passing through a series field winding is the same as the armature current, series field windings must be designed with much fewer turns than shunt field windings for the same mmf. Therefore, a series field winding has a relatively small number of turns of thick wire and, therefore, will possess a low resistance. 3. Compound Wound Motor: Compound wound motor has two field windings; one connected in parallel with the armature and the other in series with it. There are two types of compound motor connections

1. Short-shunt connection

2. Long shunt connection

When the shunt field winding is directly connected across the armature terminals it is called short shunt connection. When the shunt winding is so connected that it shunts the series combination of armature and series field it is called long-shunt connection. ## Related questions
