1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data The ratings of a dc generator are given (16 kW, 250 V, and 64 A) when it rotates at 1000 rpm. Then the question asks to find the no-load voltage at 1000 rpm when there isn't a circuit hooked up to the generator. 2. Relevant equations P = IV V = IR Kirchhoff's circuit rules \omega = 2(\pi)(f) 3. The attempt at a solution I know the answer is suppose to be 2400 V, but I have no idea why the no-load voltage is greater than 250 V.
