Types of DC Generators

“Energy can be converted from one form to other form” – A generator does the same – it converts mechanical energy to electrical energy. Mechanical energy can be  created by using water turbines, steam turbines, internal combustion engines etc. And a generator converts this mechanical energy to electrical energy.  Generators can be broadly classified as AC generators and DC generators. Here lets take a look the the types of DC generators. DC generators are classified based on their method of excitation. So on this basis there are two types of DC generators:- 1. Separately excited DC generator 2. Self excited…
