Will a D.C Shunt Motor operate on an A.C Supply?


The Shunt winding has a large number of turns so that it has appreciable inductance. When A.C is applied to a shunt motor, the large inductive reactance of shunt winding will reduce the field current too much. Consequently, Shunt motor will not usually run on A.C Supply.

  1. yes,But with less Torque and more losses

  2. bcoz of reversal of direction of current, in a shunt connection it is not necessary that when the field current exhibits negative half cycle at the same time the armature current will also exhibit negative half cycle. as a result there is a phase diff between field current and armature current. so the torque produce will be a still torque, that is the torque is of very less magnitude and not

  3. If we decrease no of turns in shunt field then what happen
