Speed/field current relationship of a dc machine

  1. Apr 21, 2006 #1
    Im having trouble explaining this relationship.......from my graph i know that if armature voltage is held constant then the field current will decrease exponentially for increasing speed. But why???

    The windings have inductance and as you increase the speed the more that inductance plays a role in the impedance.
