Circuit Diagram:
THEORY:
I) Magnetization Characteristics
 The magnetization characteristics shows the relation between the no load generated emf
in armature, E0 and the field (or) exciting current, If at a given fixed speed as shown in
model graph.
 These characteristics are also known as the No load saturation characteristics or Open
circuit characteristics. The shape of these characteristics is practically same for all
generators whether separately excited or self excited
 Due to the residual magnetism in the poles, some emf is generated even when If = 0
represented by OD**. Hence, the curve starts a little way up.
 The slight curvature, DE** at the lower end is due to magnetic inertia. It is seen that the
first part of the curve, EC** is practically straight. This is due to the fact that at low flux
densities, reluctance of iron path being negligible (due to high permeability), total
reluctance is given by the air gap reluctance, which is constant. Hence, the flux and
consequentially the generated emf are directly proportional to the exciting current.
 How ever at high flux densities, where m is small, iron path reluctance becomes
appreciable and straight relation, CF** between Eo and If no longer holds good, i.e.,
saturation of poles start.
(** refers to the model graph)
II) Critical resistance
 It is that maximum value of the field resistance, above which the machine fails to excite
i.e. there will be no build up of the voltage.
 This resistance corresponds to the straight-line position of the magnetization
characteristic because the magnetic circuit does not offer any appreciable reluctance to
the magnetic flux.
III) Critical speed
 It is that speed for which the given shunt field resistance will represent critical field
resistance
(OR)It is that minimum value of the speed of the machine below which the machine fails
to excite.

03 Ammeter (0-10)A M.C 1
04 Rheostat 360 ohm/1.2A - 1
05 Tachometer - Digital 1
06 Fuse 20A - 2
THEORY:
 It is a simple method of testing low rating DC machines and consists of applying a brake
to a water-cooled drum mounted on the motor shaft.
 The four important characteristics curves of a D.C. Shunt Motor, namely, Torque, Speed,
Armature Current & efficiency, each plotted against the useful Power, as shown in the
model graph are known as Performance characteristics
 A belt is wound round the brake drum and its two ends are attached to two spring
balances S1 & S2. The tension of the belt can be adjusted with the help of swivels.
 The force acting tangentially on the drum is equal to the difference between the readings
of the two spring balances the readings of Spring balances 1& 2 in Kg.f.
 Shaft torque, T developed by the motor is 9.81 (S1 S2) R Nm where, R is the radius of
the pulley in meters & N is the speed in rpm
 Useful Output Power = (2𝜋𝑁𝑇)/60 Watts
 Input Power = V IL Watts, where IL = (Ia + Ish)
 % Efficiency , = (Output power / Input power) x 100.
𝑁0 −𝑁𝑠
 Speed Regulation = [ (No Load speed ) - ( Full load speed )] / Full Load. Speed = 𝑁𝑠

 The size of the motor that can be tested by this method is limited from the consideration
of the heat that can be dissipated at the brake drum
 Where the output power exceeds about 2 H.P., or where the test is of long duration, it s
necessary to use a water cooled brake drum.
PROCEDURE:
1. Connect the circuit as per the Circuit diagram.
2. Initially the starter must be in off position.
3. Switch on the D.C. Motor to 220V D.C. Supply by closing the DPST Switch.
4. Start the D.C. motor using the three point starter and thereby adjust the speed to its rated speed
using field rheostat.
5. Note down the readings of Voltmeter & Ammeters in Table under No Load condition.
6. Apply the Load on the drum gradually in steps by tightening the belt around it. At each step,
note down the readings of the Ammeters, Voltmeter, two Spring balances and the Tachometer.
7. Pour water in the pulley and cool it often when the motor is loaded.
8. When the full load is reached, slowly reduce the load and switch off the Motor from 220V
D.C. Supply by opening the DPST Switch
