How to Calculate Armature Current?
Armature Current calculator uses armature_current = Field Current+Load current to calculate the Armature Current, Armature Current is the Current which Flows in Armature Winding or rotating Winding of Motor or generator. An armature is the component of an electric machine that carries alternating current. The armature windings conduct AC current even on DC machines, due to the commutator action (which periodically reverses current direction) or due to electronic commutation, as in brushless DC motors. Armature Current and is denoted by Ia symbol.
How to calculate Armature Current using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Armature Current, enter Field Current (If) and Load current (Il) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Armature Current calculation can be explained with given input values -> 17 = 7+10.
