Chapter 15 Answers



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.

    Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
