## What happens if shunt field connections are reversed?

When both (the direction of field as well as that of armature current) are reversed the direction of rotation will not change. So in case of DC shunt motor, if the supply terminals are interchanged, there is no change in direction of rotation.

## What will happen if both currents are reversed?

If both current and magnetic field were reversed simultaneously, the direction of rotation would remain unchanged.

## Why is the speed of DC shunt motor dependent on back EMF?

Explanation: In a DC shunt motor if supply for the field winding is cut down, the speed would dangerously increase in order to maintain the back emf of the motor. For a constant back emf, flux is inversely proportional to the speed of DC shunt motor. So, if flux drops to zero theoretically speed will tend to infinity.

## What do you mean by zero load on a DC shunt motor?

Armature current of any DC motor depends upon load. At no load condition, load on the motor is zero hence armature current(Ia) is also zero. From equation (i) (If=Ia) hence field current(If) will also=0 at no load condition.

## Do the direction of magnetic field lines get reverse?

The direction of magnetic field lines gets reversed if the direction of current is reversed.

## What two things could you do to reverse the movement of the rod?

If you reverse the direction of the magnetic field by turning the magnets upside down and also reverse the direction of the current in the rod, then using Fleming’s left-hand rule, your first finger will be placed in line with the direction of the magnetic field (i.e. north to south), or in the opposite direction to …

## How does a generator system charge in reverse?

GENERATOR SYSTEM CHARGING IN REVERSE… Recently replaced the generator on a 12v negative ground system. Went through the steps to polarize the system with a spark from terminal “A” to “B” at the regulator. The dash guage now indicates the system is charging in reverse.

## Why does a DC motor rotation change when the battery is reversed?

To reverse the motor, you need to change the polarity of the supply voltage to either the field winding or the armature winding, but not both. Generally it is better to reverse the field voltage because the field current is less than the armature current, so your reversing switchgear is more lightweight.

## Can You revers the supply polarity of a DC motor?

If you cannot separate the field terminals and armature terminals, then reversing cannot be done. For a brushless DC motor, reversing the supply polarity won’t work and will possibly damage the motor. The electronic commutation needs to be reversible, which has to be part of the motor design.

## How to reverse the direction of DC shunt motor?

From Equation (1), it is clear that the direction of the torque and the speed can be reversed by changing the direction of either the field current or armature current by changing the polarity of the DC voltage. However, this method is used for separately excited DC motor where it is possible to change the polarity of the field or armature.
