( Electrical engineering : Electrical power , Motor or generator )
When the speed varies, the winding characteristics may fluctuate, resulting in variation
of back EMF.
At high speeds the traction motor armatures are rotating rapidly and have a high back EMF.
Back EMF is the system in the coil of an electric motor that opposes the current flowing through
the coil, when the armature rotates.
