I have a small DC generator (motor driven) that provides field voltage and current to a hydroelectric generator. The brushes started arcing and we changed brushes and seated the brushes, however there is still arcing. Anyone have additional hints for why it's still arcing and what's the fix? There have been no load changes, it's been running at full load for the past several weeks.
Cheers in Advance

As the semiconductor industry races to keep pace with Mooreâ€™s Law, which regards the doubling of transistors per square inch on integrated circuits, lithography hardware systems are not always able to provide a quality image for creating circuits. Download Now
Current integrated circuit (IC) designs are complex, which can result in different voltages being located close to one another. To prevent time dependent dielectric breakdown (TTDB), it is essential to incorporate space rules within IC design. Download Now
