Applications of Various Types of Generators

Separately Excited Generators :
      As a separate supply is required to excite field, the use is restricted to some special applications like electro-palting, electro-refining of materials etc.

Shunt Generators :
       Commonly used in battery charging and ordinary lighting purposes.

Series Generators :
       Commonly used as boosters on d.c. feeders, as a constant current generators for welding generator and arc lamps.

Cumulatively Compound Generators :
       These are used for domestic lighting purposes and to transmit energy over long distance.

Differential Compound Generators :
      The of this type of generators is very rare and it is used for special application like electric arc welding.
