We have calculated armatures and field coils for the new dynamo with Upton, and held the stakes for Jehl and his fellows at their winding bees.
The armature, or moving part of the machine, consists in reality of eight separate armatures all constructed of corrugated sheet iron covered with asbestos and wound with wire.
These armatures are held in place by two circular iron plates, through the centre of which runs a shaft, carrying at its lower extremity a semicircular shield of fire-clay, which covers the ends of four of the armatures.
As the moving part revolves, therefore, currents of electricity are set up in the wires of the armatures and are collected by a commutator, as in an ordinary dynamo, placed on the upper end of the central shaft.
After Edison had decided this question, Upton made drawings and tables from which the real armatures were wound and connected to the commutator.

Armatures are drawn in as near as can be, to close up the magnetic circuit.
Electromagnets with iron armatures in contact across their poles will retain, after the current has been cut off, a very large part of their magnetism, even if the cores be of the softest of iron.

Assuming equal numbers of pole, the armatures rotate at a speed corresponding to one half the circuit frequency.
If the resistances of each of the armaturesbe negligibly small, and if there be no frictional or other losses, the power given out by the armature which serves as motor will just suffice to drive the armature which serves as generator.
In practice drum wound armaturesare used, the operation, however, is the same.
Briefly, it consists of a combination of an induction motor having a wound armature and a dynamo, the armatures being placed on the same shaft.
Hence, when the two armatures move synchronously, the torque produced by the action of the induced poles upon the field poles is always in the direction in which the motor is running, and accordingly, tends to keep it in operation.
Method of casting end rings on squirrel cage armatures of Fairbanks-Morse induction motors.
By the use of closed coil armaturesin later construction.
If both armatures be mounted on the same shaft and placed in equal fields, the combination is a ~motor dynamo~.
Where parallel operation is required between synchronous motor driven frequency changers, a mechanical adjustment is necessary between the fields or armatures of the alternator and motor to obtain equal division of the load.
Since the armaturesare identical, and as the similarly placed windings are passed through identical magnetic fields, one winding with proper connections to the slip rings and commutator will do for both.
With slotted armatures what provision must be made for retaining the inductors in position?
Armatures are most conveniently regarded from this end, the opposite end being known as the "back" end.
When two motors are used in electric railway work, their armatures are connected in series with each other and an extra resistance which prevents the passage of an excessive current through the armature before the motor starts.
This condition causes a serious defect in the action of ring armatures rendering the winding around the interior useless for the production of electromotive force.
In winding drum armatures for bipolar dynamos of two horse power or less, and especially for very small machines as used in fan or sewing machine motors, a form of winding, known as the Siemens winding, which is shown in fig.
In winding armatures there are two distinct methods employed, known respectively as lap and wave winding.
The disadvantages of slotted armatures may be stated as follows: 1.

These impulses will work the armatures of both of these relays in unison.
The armatures O P are preferably mounted on the same shaft, and are adjusted relatively to one another in such manner that when the self-induction in one branch, as C, is maximum, in the other branch D it is minimum.
A half revolution of the armatures produces an opposite effect and the succeeding current impulse passes through C.
The armatures are made of thin laminae of soft iron or steel, and the amount of magnetic metal which they contain is so calculated that they will be fully or nearly saturated by the magnets.

Two inducting armatures of tin are cemented to the interior of the cylinder, A, and occupy, each of them, about a third of its circumference.
By the mutual action between the electro-magnets and the armatures an accelerating force is obtained, which in result produces electricity greater in quantity and intensity than has heretofore been obtained by similar means.

As the armatures are then held down, L knows that R has finished, so he opens his switch e, and answers R.
The regular armatures have many coils and many commutator bars, as will be seen by examining the illustrations shown.
