Answer / suresh kumar

First of sll it's body should be maintained clean and dust
free for proper cooling. Carbon brushes (if available)
should be checked properly for any sparking. Excitation
voltage should be correct and automatic voltage regulator
should be working perfectly. Load should not be given more
than its rating. If possible always it should be allowed to
run in better lagging power factor. If any external cooling
media is available, it should work properly.
