IEEE/AIEE 66-1957 - AIEE Proposed Guide for Determination of Short Circuit Characteristics of Direct-Current Machinery

Description: The purpose of this Guide is to: (a) Review the factors that affect the short circuit characteristics of direct-current machinery. (b) Recommend equations for calculating the transient armature and field current from design parameters. (c) Recommend methods for approximating the rate of rise and peak value of armature current from nameplate data. (d) Discuss the causes of flashover and its effect on short-circuit current and effective armature-circuit resistance.
