This lesson covers the fundamental concepts of Direct Current (DC) machines, focusing on their operation, characteristics, and the forces involved. It begins with a review of the previous lecture on DC machines, then delves into the operation of a simple linear DC machine. The lesson explains how a conductor moving in a magnetic field generates an electromotive force (EMF), which can be utilized to deliver power to a resistance. It also discusses the concept of back EMF and how it affects the current in the circuit. The lesson further explores the motoring operation of DC machines, including the effects of friction and load force. It concludes with an analysis of the steady state of DC machines, highlighting how to calculate the final current and speed.

A conductor moving in a magnetic field generates an EMF, which can be used to deliver power to a resistance.

The back EMF in a DC machine affects the current in the circuit, and it increases as the conductor's velocity increases.

In the motoring operation of DC machines, the conductor accelerates until the back EMF equals the supply voltage, at which point the current becomes zero.

The presence of friction and load force in a DC machine can affect its final velocity and current.

The steady state of a DC machine can be determined by equating the electromagnetic and mechanical forces, allowing the calculation of the final current and speed.
