For a DC Motor...……..

Output power P=K(TxN) where T is the Torque and N is the speed of the motor and K is the constant of the motor which is the property of the motor.

This K depends upon various factors like number of poles, length of the rotor etc.

Again torque T is proportional to Field(F) x Armature Current(I)

Therefore P=K(FxIxN).

Hence for constant power, if field current is reduced to half ( that means field is reduced to half), speed remaining the same, armature current 'I' should double to make the torque 'T' double(2.0pu). But this is not possible unless the external applied voltage to the motor is doubled. If the applied voltage is not doubled, in such a situation, the speed of the motor will reduce to N/2.

I am trying to figure out the answer using.


I think the answer is still 1.0 pu as the output power is constant. Am I correct?

thanks for considering my request,i too got 1 p.u but answer is 2p..u.
