Answer / deepthi

shunt motors used for battery charging..
series motors are used as boosters in many applications like
traction..they must not be started without any they
achieve very high speeds..
compound motors are used for the purpose of arc welding.

Is This Answer Correct ?    47 Yes 7 No

Answer / chaitanya

1-phase induction motors with capacitor in series(as the 1-phase induction type is not self starting capacitor is used) is used for ceiling fans and..........induction motors are also used for lathe machines also...
universal motors are used for mixer grinder....

synchronous motors are used in paper mill(as the paper & textile mills are required to operate at const.speed)

Is This Answer Correct ?    32 Yes 0 No
