I have a very basic question. In a simple lap winding of DC motors, if the armature winding is changed from progressive (i.e. one segment forward) to retrogressive (i.e. one segment backward), will it change the direction of rotation of the motor for the same armature and field polarities ? If the direction of rotation changes, then will the interpole-main field relationship change and result in vicious sparking on load ?
