(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 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.
