What DC motor is used for traction?

dc series motor is used for traction...

Is torque and current proportional?

Sometimes, for example in a separately excited dc motor. But in a series-wound dc motor the torque is proportional to current-squared, which gives the motor a very high starting torque and this makes series motors very popular for traction.

What is the difference between traction motor and general motor?

A series motor is employed for traction application which has starting torque and permits intermittent operations by braking, which cannot be expected of a general purpose motor.

What kind of DC Motor? Different motors have different torque DC Motor Types * Permanent Magnet: No field coils at all. * Series Wound: the field coils are connected in series with the armature coil. Powerful and efficient at high speed, series wound motors generate the most torque for a given current. Speed varies wildly with load, and can run away under no-load conditions. * Shunt Wound: the field coils are connected in parallel with the armature coil. Shunt wound motors generate the least torque for a given current, but speed varies very little with load. Will not run away under no-load, but may if the field windings fail. * Compound Wound: a combination of series and shunt wound. This is an attempt to make a motor that will not run away under no load or if the field fails, yet is as efficient and powerful as a series wound motor. * Check this link:

What the applecation of universal motor?

A series-wound motor is referred to as a universal motor. We cab operate this motor either AC or DC power.

What is the reason for using a three phase motor compared to a single phase motor?

If you are asking what is the advantage of a motor wound for a Y or Delta configuration over a motor wound for a single phase configuration, then the advantage of the Y or Delta motor is more efficient operation. And in a motor, or in any power application, efficiency is all important.

Why tiers of racing cars are smooth?

To give more traction on a dry surface. The rubber compound is very soft to provide traction but that is also why they do not last long.

What is the meaning of traction control system?

There are different kind of traction control system. the logic behind them is to detect tire spin (when you loose traction) and the car will mechanically or electronically adjust the output of the motor to prevent slippage.

What is it called when you can see the bone protruding from the wound?
