Voltage Regulation

Author: E.E. Kimberly

The change in the terminal voltage of a generator when its load is changed from full load to no load while the speed remains constant is called its voltage regulation. Regulation is usually expressed as a per cent of full-load voltage. For example, if a generator has a terminal voltage of 230 volts at full load and 250 volts at no load, its regulation is
