Types of DC Motors | Classification of DC Motors

DC motors are classified into

  1. shunt motor
  2. Series motor
  3. Compound motor

The compound motor is again classified as

  • Long shunt motor — in long shunt, the shunt field is parallel with both the armature winding and series winding.
  • Short shunt motor- in short shunt, the shunt field is only parallel with armature winding.

A compound motor can also be classified as

  • Differentially compound — in which the fluxes of series and shunt are not equal and opposite direction.
  • Cumulative compound- in which the fluxes of series and shunt are in the same direction and can be added.
