pole-face winding

pole-face winding

[′pōl ‚fās ‚wīnd·iŋ]
(electromagnetism)
Winding in the pole face of a motor or generator used to neutralize the cross-magnetizing armature reaction under the pole faces, which would otherwise cause a nonuniform distribution of voltage between commutator segments. Also known as compensated winding.
