HISTORICALLY SPEAKING, most aircraft a-c generators in this country have obtained their field excitation from a conventional d-c rotating exciter. This type of exciter is characterized by rotating windings and commutators to produce direct current. Slip rings are used to carry excitation current to the rotating field of the a-c generator.
