Working Principle Of Commutator

The commutator is conventionally made by assembling hard-drawn copper sectors inter-leaved with sheet mica, these separators being ‘undercut’ by about 1 mm. The brushes, of a suitable carbon/graphite content, are mounted in boxes with spring loading to hold them against the commutator surface with a medium to strong pressure depending on the application.

Action Of The Commutator

The action of the commutator is to convert the slip frequency generated in the armature windings back to supply frequency across the brushes. The brushes are connected to the main power supply through an induction regulator which provides the link between the variable voltage at the commutator brushes and the constant voltage supply. This regulator is then used to inject a voltage into the armature winding via the brushes and causes the speed to be varied in relation to the injected voltage. At speeds below synchronous, power is drawn from the armature and returned to the supply; at super-synchronous speeds power is drawn from the supply and fed into the armature.
