Universal Motor with Mechanical Brake Loading

The universal motor is a type of electric motor that can operate on both AC and DC power. It is a commutated series-wound motor where the stator's field coils are connected in series with the rotor winding through a commutator. This type of electric motor can operate well on AC because the current in both the field coils and the armature (and the resultant magnetic fields) will alternate (reverse polarity) synchronously with the supply. Hence the resulting mechanical force will occur in a consistent direction of rotation, independent of the direction of applied voltage, but determined by the commutator and polarity of the field coils. The system is supplied along with Control Panel & Mechanical Brake Loading Arrangement mounted on heavy duty 'C' Chanel base Structure and anti-vibration pads. The Unique design of Control Panel with MMIC Diagram to demonstrate & study its no-load and full-load characteristics while operating on AC; to determine its no-load and full-load characteristics while operating on DC; to compare the starting torque on both AC and DC supply.
