2. The supply voltage of 230 V is applied by closing DPST switch.
3. The motor is started using 3 point starter and hence the flow of high starting current is avoided.

of 1500 rpm.

PROCEDURE
OCC TEST
1. The circuit connections are made as per the circuit diagram.
2. By closing the DPST switch 1, the dc motor (prime mover) is supplied with 230 V
dc supply and using 3-point starter the dc motor is started.
3. The motor field rheostat is adjusted from its minimum position and the rated
speed of 1500 rpm is set.
4. The residual voltage (armature voltage at zero excitation) is noted down from the
voltmeter.
5. Close the SPST switch and the generator field rheostat is varied in steps of 0.1 A.
Note down the field current (I
f
) and the corresponding generated voltage (E
g
).
6. The same procedure is repeated until the generator reaches its rated voltage of the
generator.
1. By adjusting the motor field rheostat, set the rated speed of 1500 rpm.
2. By adjusting the generator field rheostat, set the rated voltage of generator, i.e.
230 V.
3. Note down the no load voltage and field current.
4. Now the DPST switch 2 is closed.
5. Then the load is applied in step using loading rheostat in steps of 2 A up to the
rated current of 12 A and the load current (I
L
), load voltage (V
L
) and field current
(I
f
) are noted down for all the loads.
6. For every load, check the speed of the motor which is to be maintained at rated
speed of 1500 rpm.
7. The loading rheostat and generator field rheostat are brought back to initial state.

dc supply and using 3-point starter the dc motor is started.
3. The motor field rheostat is adjusted from its minimum position and the rated
speed of 1500 rpm is set.
4. The residual voltage (armature voltage at zero excitation) is noted down from the
voltmeter.
5. Close the SPST switch and the generator field rheostat is varied in steps of 0.1 A.
Note down the field current (I
f
) and the corresponding generated voltage (E
g

6. The same procedure is repeated until the generator reaches its rated voltage.
1. By adjusting the motor field rheostat, set the rated speed of 1500 rpm.
2. By adjusting the generator field rheostat, set the rated voltage of generator, i.e.
230 V.

rated current of 12 A and the load current (I
L
), load voltage (V
L
) and field current
(I
f
) are noted down for all the loads.
6. For every loading, check the speed of the motor which is to be maintained at rated
speed of 1500 rpm.
7. The loading rheostat and generator field rheostat are brought back to initial state.
8. The motor field rheostat is brought back to initial state and the motor is switched
off by opening the DPST switch 1.

PROCEDURE
SEPARATION OF LOSSES BY SINGLE MOTOR METHOD
1. Connections are made as per the circuit diagram.
2. The 230 V dc supply is given to the motor by closing the DPST switch.
3. The resistance of the armature rheostat is gradually reduced to zero.
4. By increasing the resistance of the field rheostat, the speed of the motor is
adjusted to its rated value of 1500 rpm.
5. All the meter readings are noted and tabulated.
6. The resistance of the field rheostat is increased so that the speed increases.
7. The resistance of the armature rheostat is increased to bring the speed to the rated
value again.
8. The meter readings are noted down in the tabular column.
9. The same procedure is repeated till very small voltage is applied to the armature
and the corresponding readings are noted.
10. Calculate armature copper loss, mechanical and iron losses using the given
formula.
11. A curve is plotted taking the armature voltage, V
a
along Xaxis and the armature
input along Yaxis.

MEASUREMENT OF ARMATURE RESISTANCE
1. Connections are made as per the circuit diagram as shown in Fig. 18.1
2. The dc supply voltage of 230 V is applied by closing the DPST switch.
3. By varying the loading rheostat in steps, the ammeter and voltmeter readings are
noted and tabulated.
4. This procedure is repeated for four steps of readings.
5. Calculate the armature resistance and take average of the above values.
6. Loading rheostat is brought back to initial state and the DPST switch is opened.

10EE 306 ELECTRICAL MACHINES LABORATORY -I
126
MODEL GRAPH

A curve is plotted taking the armature voltage Va along Xaxis and the armature
input along Yaxis.
Since the speed is kept constant, the mechanical loss is constant.
As the excitation is reduced gradually, the flux per pole is reduced and therefore
the iron loss is reduced with the voltage.
When the armature voltage is almost zero the flux per pole is also almost zero and
so the iron loss is zero.
So if the curve is produced backwards to meet the Yaxis at A the intercept OA
on the Yaxis represents the mechanical loss.
Then a horizontal line AB is drawn. For the rated voltage OP the iron loss is BC.
