Electric automobiles, Electric motors -- Direct current
This report describes the speed characteristic and various methods of speed control of DC shunt (separately excited) motors, especially for application in electrical vehicles. The basic behavior of the DC motor is discussed, along with traditional and modern techniques of speed control. As an example, a speed controller for a shunt motor (built and tested by the author) is discussed. Two types of speed controllers for electric cars are discussed, and the performance results for an experimental electric car are presented. Finally, a design for a 24 HP car motor controller using both armature and field control was simulated on a smaller scale in the laboratory.
