normal although
a
larger speed range
is
achievable using specially
designed motors.
Since steel saturates
at
less than
2
tesla, increasing
the
field cur-
rent
and
hence field strength
as a
method
of
speed reduction
has
very limited applications. This must
be
done by reducing the voltage
on
the
armature.
If
the field
and
torque remain constant,
