# Frequent question: What is no load current of DC shunt motor?

Contents

The no-load current is the current required just to turn the motor shaft with nothing connected. It is the current required to overcome the bearing and brush friction plus the aerodynamic drag caused by the rotor moving in the air and moving air through the motor for cooling purposes.

## What is a no load current?

[′nō ¦lōd ′kə·rənt] (electricity) The current which flows in a network when the output is open-circuited.

## What is the no load speed of DC shunt motor?

The No Load Speed Of Shunt DC Motor formula is defined as a reference to how fast the shaft of a motor will turn before weight is added to it and is represented as n_l_s = ((S.R*Sfl)+Sfl)*100 or no_load_speed = ((Speed Regulation*Full Load Speed)+Full Load Speed)*100.

## How do you find no load current?

(all winding series-connected and the junction will be connected to the power supply). No load current at delta connection = 0.3 x Motor Full load current. Look at the difference between star-connected motor and delta connected motor, do you know why this difference?

The no-load current is the current required just to turn the motor shaft with nothing connected. It is the current required to overcome the bearing and brush friction plus the aerodynamic drag caused by the rotor moving in the air and moving air through the motor for cooling purposes.

## What will happen when DC shunt motor is started with load?

If the same machine is run as a motor it takes a line current of 20A from 220V supply. … Answer : With the increase in load on a d.c. shunt motor, speed of the motor reduces slightly.

## What are the advantages of DC shunt motor?

• The power supply of the DC motor is any way cheap.
• Shunt would motor able to runs at a predetermined speed.
• The speed of a dc shunt motor is sufficiently constant.
• Direct current machines can use for heavy industrial applications where the torque and speed wider range.
