Which DC motor is preferred for Elevator?

Right Answer is:

Cumulative compound motor

SOLUTION

  • Compound motor finds application where high starting torque or pulsating load are required.
  • In the elevator, the load is always pulsating and high starting torque is required to run the elevator.
  • This high starting torque is provided by the series winding of the compound motor and maximum speed at no load is limited by shunt winding of the compound motor.
