# Frequent question: What is the resistance of a DC motor?

Contents

## Does DC motor have resistance?

The armature of a DC motor has 20Ω resistance.

## What is starting resistance of DC motor?

For the best motor performance, armature resistance in DC motors is kept very low (typically less than 1 ohm). To see how significantly this affects the starting current, we can assume that armature resistance (Ra) is 0.4 ohm and supply voltage (E) is 220 V.

## What should the resistance of a motor be?

With a multimeter, measure the resistance between motor frame (body) and earth. A good motor should read less than 0.5 ohms. Any value greater 0.5 ohms indicate trouble with the motor.

## How do you Ohm a DC motor?

Check to make sure the DC motor’s rotor can turn with no impediments. Switch the voltmeter to “Ohms“. Attach one end of the red lead wires to the DC motor and run the DC motor’s red wire to the battery. Attach the clip of the black lead wire to the DC motor and run the black motor wire to the battery.

## Why is the armature of a DC machine made of silicon steel?

An a armature winding of DC motor is connected to a rotating part of the machine called rotor. It goes through an alternating magnet field. This results in magnetic losses. Because of magnetic losses, rotor is built using armature core which in turn is made with many low-hysteresis silicon steel lamination.

## When speed of a dc motor increases the armature current?

From the equation. (3) we can say, speed is inversely proportional to armature current. Thus, when the speed of the dc motor is increased, the armature current will decrease. So, the correct answer is “Option B”.

## What is the type of winding used in DC starter motor?

In a DC Shunt motor the field winding is connected in parallel (shunt) with the armature. The shunt winding is wound from many turns of small copper wire and since it is connected across the DC field supply, its field current will be constant.

## What is the function of the starting resistance?

a resistance or reactance (inductive reactance) introduced into the armature circuit of an electric motor when the motor is started in order to limit the starting current and to provide the required starting torque.

## Why is armature resistance low in DC motor?

There need to be sufficient winding resistance within the field winding to restrict the current drift. … However, it is necessary that the armature resistance is low because the DC generator generates excessive currents and any DC armature resistance will cause decrease in generator performance.
