The term simplex and duplex windings are linked to DC machines the rotor/armature winding in DC machines are classified into two types based on the plex of windings.
Differences between Simplex and Duplex Windings
|Feature||Simplex Windings||Duplex Windings|
|Rotor Construction||It comprises of a single, complete, closed winding wound on a rotor||It comprises of a single, complete, closed winding wound on a rotor|
|Number of parallel paths||It comprises a rotor with two complete and independent sets of rotor windings||The number of parallel paths is equal to the number of poles|
