Development of a High Efficiency Induction Motor

Development of a High Efficiency Induction Motor: With ever-increasing energy cost the life-time operating cost of an induction motor can be traded against a high efficiency and high capital cost induction motors. With rising demand for high efficiency or energy efficient induction motors, designers and manufacturers are stepping up their production of such motors. Some …

Inverted Induction Motor

Inverted Induction Motor: In a wound rotor induction machine the three-phase supply can be given to the rotor windings through the slip rings and the stator terminals can be shorted (see Fig. 9.68). Such a Rotor Fed Induction Machine is also called an Inverted Induction Motor. The three-phase rotor current will generate a rotating field …

Dynamic Modelling of Induction Motor

Dynamic Modelling of Induction Motor: In general, the mechanical time-constant for any machine is much larger than the electrical time constant. Therefore, the Dynamic Modelling of Induction Motor can be simplified by neglecting the electrical transient without any loss of accuracy of results. The circuit model of Induction motor holds for constant slip but would …

Isolated Induction Generator

Isolated Induction Generator: An Induction Machine can also work as a generator even if external power supply not available and it is called Isolated Induction Generator. An Isolated Induction Generator feeding a load is shown in Fig. 9.61. The delta-connected capacitors across the generator terminals provide the magnetizing current necessary to excite the isolated generator. …

Induction Generator Transmission Line Diagram

Induction Generator Transmission Line Diagram: An induction generator is asynchronous in nature because of which it is commonly used as windmill generator as a windmill runs at non-fixed speed. These are used in remote areas to supplement power received from weak transmission links. A transmission line connected to an induction generator feeding a local load …

Double Cage Rotor Induction Motor

Double Cage Rotor Induction Motor: A rotor design, which though more expensive gives still better starting, and running performances than the deep-bar design, is the Double Cage Rotor Induction Motor. The double squirrel cage induction motor winding in this design consists of two layers of bars short-circuited by end rings. The upper bars have a …
