Example Problem
Find the armature voltage (Va) of DC motor whose armature constant Ka = 0.0025, armature speed n = 1500 rpm & flux generated by the magnetic field φ = 100 weber
Solution
The given data
Ka = 0.0025
armature speed n = 1500 rpm
φ = 100 weber

Step by step calculation
Formula to find Va = Ka x n x φ
substitute the values in the formula
= 0.0025 x 1500 x 100
Va = 375 volts
