Wound-Field Designs & Ratings

A DC motor is designed to run on DC electric power. Industrial applications use DC motors because the speed-torque relationship can be varied to almost any useful form. In emergency situations, dc motors can supply over five times rated torque without stalling. Wound-field DC motors are are classified by series-wound, split series wound, shunt wound, and compound wound.
