# You asked: How can the speed of a shunt DC motor be controlled?

Contents

## Which method is used to control the speed of DC shunt motor?

There are so many methods for controlling the speed of a DC shunt motor but field rheostat control method is most reliable, economic and independent of load on the motor. This method is only applicable when we want speed which is higher than the normal speed of the motor.

## What is the speed of a dc motor?

DC controls adjust speed by varying the voltage sent to the motor (this differs from AC motor controls which adjust the line frequency to the motor). Typical no load or synchronous speeds for an AC fractional horsepower motor are 1800 or 3600 rpm, and 1000-5000 rpm for DC fractional hp motors.

## How can we increase the speed of shunt motor?

The speed of DC shunt motor can be increased above its rated speed by

1. increasing the supply voltage within its rated value.
2. increasing the flux per pole.
3. decreasing the flux per pole.
4. connecting additional resistance in series of the armature.

## What is the minimum speed limit of DC shunt motor?

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

## Which dc motor is preferred for constant speed?

DC Shunt-wound motor: This is an almost constant speed motor and its torque varies nearly as the current.

## Which is the fastest DC motor?

The British appliance manufacturer Dyson claims to have developed the world’s fastest, most efficient motor for domestic appliances. The Dyson Digital Motor (DDM) v2 is a single-phase brushless DC motor, which operates at speeds up to 104,000 rpm with a claimed efficiency of 84%.

## How can you increase the speed of a motor?

The speed of rotation of the coil can be increased by:

1. increasing the size of the current;
2. using a stronger magnet;
3. increasing the number of turns of wire in the coil;
4. reducing friction between the coil and the axel it rotates on.
