There is a major omission on page 1 in the ninth paragraph (cited below): You can only reverse a DC motor if you reverse the polarity of either the armature .OR. field, but .NOT. both: Shunt wound, series wound and compound wound motors DC derive their field current from the voltage applied to the armature, meaning both are reversed simultaneously, and the motor will continue to spin in the same direction. "The good news is that as we saw in Chapter 3… And if we want to motor or generate with the reverse direction of rotation, all we have to do is to reverse the polarity of the armature supply. The d.c. machine is inherently a four-quadrant device, but needs a supply which can provide positive or negative voltage, and simultaneously handle either positive or negative current.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
