Excitation can provide the magnetic field needed for the reducer to operate. So, what are the main excitation methods of the reducer? The editor introduces the following 4 more commonly used excitation methods, let's take a look!
1. Separate excitation: The excitation winding of the reducer has no connection relationship with the armature winding, and other DC power supplies supply power to the excitation winding.
2. Shunt excitation: the field winding is connected in parallel with the armature winding. As a shunt generator, the field winding and the armature share the same power source, which is the same as a separately excited DC motor in terms of performance.
3. Series excitation: After the excitation winding of the motor is connected in series with the armature winding, it is connected to the DC power supply.
4. Compound excitation: the reducer has two excitation windings, parallel excitation and series excitation. If the magnetomotive force generated by the series winding is in the same direction as the magnetomotive force generated by the parallel excitation winding, it is called product compound excitation; The general trend is opposite, it is called differential compound excitation.
Different excitation methods have different characteristics of the reducer. After understanding the above excitation methods, we can use the machine more proficiently and apply it to various industries with high efficiency.
