Construction and Principle of Operation of the Shunt DC Motor Principle of OperationMotor SpeedMotor Speed ControlReferencesWhen electric voltage is supplied to the shunt DC motor, due to high resistance of the shunt winding, it draws very low current. The higher number of turns of the shunt winding helps in generating a strong magnetic field. The armature draws high current, thus also generating a high magnetic field. The motor starts rotating as the magnetic field of the armature and shunt winding interact. As the magnetic fields grow stronger, rotational torSee more on brighthubengineeringAuthor: Umair Mirza Shunt DC Motor Connections - YouTube Click to view on Bing5:30This video will walk you through the connections for a Shunt DC Motor and demonstrate how it runs without a physical load connected to the shaft of the motor.Author: Pete VreeViews: 44K Types of DC Motor - Shunt, Series & Compound Wound Motor Types of DC Motor A Direct Current Motor, DC is named according to the connection of the field winding with the armaturely there are two types of DC Motors. First, one is Separately Excited DC Motor and Self-excited DC Motor. The self-excited motors are further classified as Shunt wound or shunt motor, Series wound or series motor and Compound wound or compound motor.
