Sol. A chopper is a static device that converts fixed DC input voltage to a variable DC output voltage. A chopper is a DC equivalent to an AC transformer having continuously variable turn ratio. Like a transformer, it can be used to step-up or step-down the fixed DC input voltage. On this basis, there are two types of choppers: Step-up and Step-down Chopper.
Sol. DC series motor is used where high starting torque is required, thus in cranes and hoists DC series motor is used widely.
Sol. DC series motor should not be started on no-load as No-load speed of the DC motor is very high.
Sol. LAP winding: large current & low voltage applications
WAVE winding: high voltage & low current applications
Sol. The range of efficiency for shaded pole motors is 5% to35%.
Shaded pole motors are used where low torque is acceptable (such as fans) and are usually less than ¼ HP. Due to their very low efficiency, shaded pole motors should only be used in applications where the motor is very small or operates for very short period of time (e.g., shower fan motor).
Sol. The transposition of the conductor equalises the mutual inductance and capacitance between the lines.
