This paper presents the results of power quality measurements performed on a DC motor drive. The power quality measurements involve a laboratory setup to investigate how various loading conditions on DC drive affect the efficiency, input power factor and total harmonic distortion of output armature current of a DC drive. Through the capture of this information, ways to minimize losses associated with the DC motor drive could be achieved based on finding an optimal operating point or region.
