I got confused in an experiement experiment concerning shunt motor. In
the experiment, I was asked to kept increase the load and measure the
final speed and armature current.

the experimental results were compared with the theorectical ones and
they matched as long as the loading is small. But when the load was
increased to 0.65Nm there was a sudden increase in armature current
and drop in speed, devated from the original tendency.

My demostrator said that this was "superloading". I ve never come
across the term before. What is "superloading"? And how did it affect
the performance of the shunt motor?
