  1. Q: which application DC motor preffer on AC motor?
    1)variable speed operation
    2)high speed
    3)low speed
    4)fixed speeed

    plz give ans

  2. High speed because of high stating torque in dc motor

  3. FIXED SPEED *BIM 10.01.2016

  4. All are possible
    But in ac motor syn motor type fixed speed
    In Im variable speed drives used
    In more application we use low speed drives
    Ans is : 3

  5. Variable speed operation because d.c motora speed control is good as compared a.c motors.
