The linkage between the sinusoidally dispersedair opening flux and stimulated rotor currents generates a torque on the rotor. Transformers are used, primaries of which are connected to the 3 phase supply and the secondaries are connected to the relays and the timer in such a way that failure of any 1 phase will stop the supply to the timer. Squirrel Cage 3 phase induction motor are the most commonly used induction motor type in the industry. These motors are used in exhaust and intake fans, unit heaters, blowers, etc. The input current to the started equals its output current. The no-load speed may be so high that the centrifugal force may pull the motor apart.
Thus, the shaded pole attempts to maintain the flux, and most of the flux passes through the shaded poles. This method is uneconomical, due to the cost of the capacitors. In this, stator is constructed in a special way to produce moving magnetic field. Under load, the speed drops and the slip increases enough to create sufficient torque to turn the load. This field causes the motor to run in the direction it is started even with a single winding.
Its main function is to support the stator core and the field winding. Larger single phase motors are and have a second stator winding fed with out-of-phase current; such currents may be created by feeding the winding through a capacitor or having it receive different values of inductance and resistance from the main winding. To make it easy for you; self-starting means that the machine starts running automatically without any external force to it. To prevent this, motor starters are needed. The laminations are rectangular, with a cutout for the coil and another for the rotor, as shown. For motors used in gas and oil terminals, the casing must be of intrinsically safe, thus it may either have a enclosed casing or a pipe ventilated arrangement such that the sparks produced inside the motor does not cause a fire outside it. The resultant of these two fluxes produce rotating magnetic field and hence the starting torque.
Although polyphase motors are inherently self-starting, their starting and pull-up torque design limits must be high enough to overcome actual load conditions. The rotor accelerates until the magnitude of induced rotor current and torque balances the applied mechanical load on the rotation of the rotor. Also many motors are totally enclosed as it may be open to weather like those used in hydro-electric power plants. These kind of motors are used even in high precision positioning devices like modern robots. . In induction motors the speed controlling is also affected by the efficiency of this motor.
Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. The speed of the motors can also be varied continuously by some electronic arrangements thus this can be suited for certain applications like a ship's cargo pump, whose discharge rate has to lowered as per the terminals requirement. Induction motors are most commonly run on single-phase or three-phase power, but two-phase motors exist; in theory, induction motors can have any number of phases. In case of three phase induction motor, the field produced by the supply is of rotating type and hence they are self starting motors. There is a centrifugal switch in the auxiliary winding circuit that opens as the motor approaches full speed. The machine runs as a self excited. So by changing the supply voltage of the induction motor, you can control the torque and speed of the induction motor.
At standstill, the rotor current is the same frequency as the stator current, and tends to travel at the outermost parts of the cage rotor bars by. The rotor is generally constructed of copper or aluminum strips attached at each end to a circular fixture. This is the simplest arrangement to set up a rotating magnetic field by providing two winding on the same stator core as shown in figure. Due to the capacitor, the inrush currents are reduced in this motor. In the , we give one supply to the stator and another to the rotor through brush arrangement.
Since it does not have slip rings, it cannot be connected to an external circuit. This the reason, it is called slip ring induction motor. We connect one with the auxiliary winding. If the motor is operating at a slip a at the instant of plugging, the total braking torque is the sum of the plugging torque at 2 — s and the load torque T p may be controlled by a variable rotor which limits the braking current. And auxiliary winding connected in series with a capacitor and a starting switch.
If the number of poles are changed then the speed also changes. An induction motor uses the principle of electromagnetic induction to cause the rotor to turn. The equivalent circuit is a single-phase representation of a multiphase induction motor that is valid in steady-state balanced-load conditions. Instead of placing windings in the sewer, copper or aluminum rods are placed. The shade windings are additional windings that occupied in each corner of the stator poles.
