V curve

Index V curve

In power engineering & electrical engineering, V curve is the graph showing the relation of armature current as a function of field current in synchronous machines keeping the load constant. [1]

8 relations: Armature (electrical engineering), Electric machine, Electrical engineering, Excitation (magnetic), Power engineering, Power factor, Stator, Synchronous motor.

Power factor

In electrical engineering, the power factor of an AC electrical power system is defined as the ratio of the real power flowing to the load to the apparent power in the circuit, and is a dimensionless number in the closed interval of −1 to 1.

The stator is the stationary part of a rotary system, found in electric generators, electric motors, sirens, mud motors or biological rotors.

Synchronous motor

A synchronous electric motor is an AC motor in which, at steady state, the rotation of the shaft is synchronized with the frequency of the supply current; the rotation period is exactly equal to an integral number of AC cycles.
