APPLICATIONS OF DC GENERATOR
DC Separately Exited Generator:
As a supply source to DC Motors, whose speed is to be controlled for certain applications. Where a wide range of voltage is required for the testing purposes.
DC Shunt Generator
The terminal voltage of DC shunt generator is more or less constant from no load to full load .Therefore these generators are used where constant voltage is required.
For electro plating
For excitation of Alternators.
DC Series Generator
The terminal voltage of series generator increases with load current from no load to full load .Therefore these generators are,
Used as Boosters
Used for supply to arc Lamps
DC Compound Generator:
Differential Compound generators are used to supply dc welding machines. Level compound generators are used to supply power for offices, hostels and Lodges etc. Over compound generators are used to compensate the voltage drop in Feeders.
An electrical generator is a device that converts mechanical energy to electrical energy, generally using electromagnetic induction. The source of mechanical energy may be a reciprocating or turbine steam engine, water falling through a turbine or waterwheel, an internal combustion engine, a wind turbine, a hand crank, or any other source of mechanical energy.
