To save the output to a file, you have a open a file object and write
to it. When you are done, just close it. 

If your program, open a fileobj somewhere on the top.

fileobj = open('dc-generator-output.txt','w')

And where you put the print statement, replace it with
fileobj.write("       ") # Within in the " " the output which you want
to put. One strategy would be create a string in place of your print
and write the string.
For eg.

Instead of

print '(Pole*RPM) product for various values of conductors/slot is: \n', polerpm

You will do

msg = '(Pole*RPM) product for various values of conductors/slot is: \n', polerpm


And in the end, close the fileobj.


Flee at once, all is discovered.
