The purpose of this paper is to discuss the design, construction and performance of an electronic voltage regulator for a 12.5-kva laboratory alternator. The alternator is to be used as a power supply for undergraduate experiments on a 5-kva synchronous motor. The generator is driven by a 15-hp, compound-sound direct current motor. The synchronous motor experiments require constant voltage for loads up to 7.5-kva for a range of power between 0.5 lagging and 0.5 leading. This essay includes a brief survey of voltage regulator circuit as well as the solution of the above problem.
