DC GENERATOR CONSTRUCTION
DC GENERATOR CONSTRUCTIONAll dc generators have several common characteristics. The armature windings connected to the commutator assembly are contained in the rotor. The field windings, which produce the electromagnetic field, are stationary or part of the stator assembly. The brushes of a dc generator are also stationary and used along with the commutator to rectify the current produced in the armature. In general, there are two main elements of all generators: the rotor, the assembly that rotates, and the stator, the assembly that is stationary. The rotor is connected to the engine through a drive belt or gear assembly and the stator is mounted to the engine. Although most dc generators are found only on older aircraft, the…
