Electricity - Basic Navy Training Courses

Here is the "Electricity - Basic Navy Training Courses" (NAVPERS 10622) in its entirety. It should provide one of the Internet's best resources for people seeking a basic electricity course - complete with examples worked out. See copyright. See Table of Contents.






1. How does a d-c motor differ from a d-c generator in construction?

2. Motor action results from the reaction between two _____________.

3. What is motor action in a generator?

4. What is counter-emf in a motor?

5. What effect does counter-emf have on armature current?

6. What happens to the amount of counter-emf if the motor is slowed down?

7. What effect does decreased counter-emf have on the amount of current?

8. What is the principle function of a starter?

9. What are the two methods of reversing a motor?

10. What is standard Navy practice for reversing a motor?

1. Not at all. Essentially the two are alike in construction.

2. Magnetic fields.

3. The force set up by the two fields which tends to make the generator run as a motor.
    This is a Lenz's law illustration.

4. The induced voltage which opposes the applied voltage. Another Lenz's law illustration.

5. Counter-emf controls the current by opposing the current's flow.

6. Counter-emf decreases.

7. Current will increase.

8. A starter decreases current to the armature by putting a resistance in the armature circuit.

9. Reverse leads to either the field or armature. Not to both!

10. Reverse armature leads only.
