Main Question or Discussion Point

Why is it that the air gap flux density is flat topped at no load. What happens to it's shape when machine is loaded?

Is flux = mmf/reluctance? Is air gap constant under pole piece?


Have you looked up "Armature Reaction" ?

Unloaded, the only MMF is that from the field current. When armature current begins to flow, armature mmf changes shape flux .

Surely your textbook shows diagrams...
