Shunt Motor. In the shunt motor, the field winding is connected in parallel with the armature (figure 3-8). There are
two circuits through the shunt motor; one through the armature and one through the field coil. The field coils are
wound with relatively small wire and have a large number of turns. This type of winding is necessary to maintain a
