Solved Example

The below step by step solved example problem may helpful for users to understand how the input values are being used in such calculations to find the armature mechanical torque (Tm) of DC motor.
Example Problem
Find the armature mechanical torque (Tm) of a DC motor whose field constant Ka = 0.0025, armature current Ia = 0.75 amps & (EMF) flux generated by the magnetic field φ = 250 weber.
Solution
The given data
field constant Ka = 0.0025
EMF φ = 250 weber
Ia = 0.75 Amps

Step by step calculation
Formula to find Tm = (60 x Ka x Ia x φ)/2π
substitute the values in the above formula
= (60 x 0.0025 x 0.75 x 250)/2π
Tm = 4.476 newton-meters
