The Separately Excited Generator
? A separately excited dc generator is a
generator whose field current is supplied by
a separate external dc voltage source.
? By Kirchhoff's voltage law , the terminal
voltage is
? Since the internal generated voltage is
independent of lA the terminal
characteristic of the separately excited
generator is a straight line
A separately excited dc generator
The terminal characteristic (a) with and (b) without compensating windings
