Would someone pls enlighten me why, when the speed of a motor increase, the motor load increases?Electric Machinery and Power System Fundamentals by Chapman said:Flux weakening causes problems in both generators and motors. In generators, the effect of flux weakening is simply to reduce the voltage supplied by the generator for any given load. In motors, the effect can be more serious... when the flux in a motor is decreased, its speed increases. But increasing the speed of a motor can increase its load, resulting in more flux weakening. It is possible for some shunt DC motors to reach a runaway condition as a result of flux weakening, where the speed of the motor just keeps increasing until the machine is disconnected from the power line or until it destroys itself.
Is the load increase here due to the increase of friction and windage when speed increases?
How the increased load will result in more flux weakening?
