why we use carbon brush in exciter&genrator?..

Answer / kawsar ahmed

We use carbon brush with commutator and slip ring, because carbon has negative coefficient of heat. That means when heat increase carbon brush resistance do not increase.
Another reason is carbon friction loss is less then other element.

why we use carbon brush in exciter&genrator?..

Answer / raul

brushes r the means of supplying the direct current from
the commutator to the external load ........n the contact
resistance is an important factor which plays an important
role. in dc generators, carbon brushes also helps in
improving commutation
