    (a) A shunt-wound motor set was designed to run from a 250 V d.c. supply. It had an effective armature resistance of 3 m Ohm and when run at 3000 rev/min it drew 10 kA.

    (i) The maximum permissible supply voltage at start-up if the motor set is not to draw more than 20 kA when started from rest.
    (ii) The maximum start-up torque available.

    (i). When the motor start from the rest, the speed is zero, i.e., m = 0 ...

    Solution Summary

    The solution is to be used more like guidance. It does not give numerical computation, but just formula wise computation.
