# Two adjustable-speed dc shunt motors have maximum speeds of 1800r/min and minimum speeds of 500r/min. Speed adjustment

## Question:

Two adjustable-speed dc shunt motors have maximum speeds of 1800r/min and minimum speeds of 500r/min. Speed adjustment is obtained by field-rheostat control. Motor A drives a load requiring constant power over the speed range; motor B drives one requiring constant torque. All losses and armature reaction may be neglected.

a. If the power outputs of the two motors are equal at 1800 r/min and the armature currents are each 125 A, what will the armature currents be at 500r/min?

b. If the power outputs of the two motors are equal at 500 r/min and the armature currents are each 125 A, what will the armature current be at 1800 r/min?

c. Answer parts (a) and (b) with speed adjustment by armature-voltage control with conditions otherwise the same.
