APPLICATIONS OF DC GENERATOR
DC Separately Exited Generator:
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
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
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,
supply to arc Lamps
DC Compound Generator:
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.
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.
