Each question carries ten marks.
 Explain the working of simple loop D.C Generator?

A shunt generator delivers 195A, at terminal p.d of 250V. The armature resistance and
shunt field resistance are 0.02ohm and 50ohm respectively. The iron and friction losses
equal 950 W .
Find (i) Emf generated (ii) Copper losses (iii) o/p of prime mover (iv) Electrical efficiency?
 Derive the formula for Demagnetising AT/Pole & Cross magnetising A T/Pole for a d.c
generator? 
A 4pole lap wound dc generator with 450armature conductors supplies a current of
150amps. The brushes have been displaced through 3 angular degrees from the
geometrical neutral axis. Calculate (i) Demagnetising AT/pole (ii) Cross magnetising
AT/pole (iii) The additional field current for neutralising the demagnetisation is the field
winding has 1000 turns/pole? 
(i) explain the principle operation of D.C Motor with neat sketches?
(ii) Explain the significance of back EMF in dc motors and its formula?
 Explain the different losses & power stages in d.c motor?

A 200V shunt motor has armature resistance of 0.04ohm and runs at 1000 rpm, when
the armature current is 60A.If the torque is unchanged; find the speed and armature
current when the field strength is reduced by 20%? 
Explain how break test is conducted on d.c shunt motor with a neat sketch, also write
the merits and demerits of the test?
