Basically, your series and shunt ohmmeters differ in circuit configuration. Your series ohmmeter is configured in a way that your "meter" (which has internal resistance) is connected in series to your "measured resistor" and we all know that those TWO resistances will ADD up causing some sort of inaccuracy. While on the other hand, your shunt ohmmeter is configured in a way wherein your "meter" is connected in PARALLEL to your "measured resistor" that will ease-up the inaccuracy but will only measure resistances ranging from 200 Ohms to 400 Ohms (typically and depending on your configuration).

What is difference between stab shunt dc motor and shunt dc motor?

A Stab-Shunt wound motor is a type of compound motor. Is has a field in series with the armature and also a field in parallel (shunt). You can tell the difference between the leads as the field in series with the armature has to be able to handle the amperage load of the armature itself. It will have leads identical in size to the armature. The key issue to watch for is wiring the shunt and the series field in opposition to each other. This will create a differentially wound motor (suicide motor). The fields will (in effect) offset each other as speed/current increases. The faster it rotates, the more the series field will cancel the shunt field. This is DC motors 101, less field = faster rotation. This can cause a runaway motor.

What precuation must be taken when using an ohmmeter?

Be certain the circuit is de-energized and discharged before connecting an ohmmeter.Do not apply power to a circuit while measuring resistance.When you are finished using an ohmmeter, switch it to the OFF position if one is provided and remove the leads from the meter.Always adjust the ohmmeter for 0 (or ∞ in shunt ohmmeter) after you change ranges before making the resistance measurement.

What is difference between series fed and shunt fed hartley oscillator?

The DC voltage for the amplifier (transistor or FET) runs for a series-fed oscillator through the inductance of the LC circuit. A shunt-fed oscillator uses a radio-frequency choke or a resistor to deliver DC voltage to the amplifier. For an oscillator the difference between serial-fed and shunt-fed is small. The choke resonance frequency can interact with the LC circuit resonance frequency. This problem happens only with shunt-fed. Furthermore series-fed needs less components. Therefore it is prefered for (low power) oscillators. The output circuit of an amp can be series-fed or shunt-fed, too. The additional DC current through the coil will drive a iron or ferrite core earlier into saturation. This is an disadvantage of serial-fed. At a high-voltage tube RF amp with say 2000V DC voltage, in the shunt-fed amp only the choke and the DC blocking capacity have to withstand the high voltage. This is an advantage of the shunt-fed solution.

What is shunt and series motor?

A series motor is one in which the field windings are in series with the armature windings. So the torque is proportional to the square of the supply current.'Shunt' is an archaic term for 'parallel'. So a shunt motor is one in which the field winding is in parallel with the armature windings. So the torque is proportional to the supply current.


What field setting for a dc shunt motor wired in series on high voltage?

A shunt dc motor has quite different characteristics from a series motor. Wired in series, the same current passes through the armature and the field winding and it is most unlikely that a shunt motor would have a field winding that is suitable for this. Therefore a shunt motor cannot be wired as a series motor in general because its field winding is designed for only a small current.
