How To Use shunt circuit In A Sentence

  • The insulating strips in the commutator are sufficiently wide to demagnetize the whole of the machine before reversibility in the armature takes place, and this demagnetization sets up a _direct_ induced current, which is caught in a shunt circuit by the aid of a second commutator, which only comes into action when the first commutator goes out. Scientific American Supplement, No. 447, July 26, 1884
  • When this motor is supplied by a continuous current, it is easy to understand that the induced current which passes through the shunt circuit, and which is caused by the demagnetization, is proportional to the mass of iron and wire of which the machine is composed, or proportional to its inductive capacity. Scientific American Supplement, No. 447, July 26, 1884
