Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 3

The rotor winding of a 6 pole, 3 phase, slip-ring induction motor receive a 3-phase, 50 Hz supply produced an air gap mmf rotating in the clock wise direction with respect to the rotor the rotor itself is being rotated in the anticlockwise direction at 400 rpm. Frequency of the voltages induced in the stator phases is _______ Hz


Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 3


Relating speed with respect to rotor = 1000
Speed with respect to stator = Nactual
Speed of rotor = Nr
1000 = Nactual – (-400)
Nactual = 600 R.P.M

Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 4

A 6 – pole, 3 phase induction motor is drawing current from a 50Hz supply. If the rotor is running at a speed of 970 rpm, what is the speed of rotor magnetic field with respect to rotor?

Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 4

Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 5

The ratio of starting to full load current for a 15 kW, 300 V and 3ϕ induction motor with DOL starter is _________. For 3 phase inductor motor has full load efficiency 0.90 the full load PF is 0.8 and short-circuit current is 30A at 100V.


Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 5

Ist = 30 A
Starting current when it work at 300V
Ist = 30 × 3 = 90 A

∴ Ratio of starting current to full load current
= 90/40.09 = 2.244

Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 6

A 208 V, 8 pole 60 Hz three phase star connected wound rotor induction motor has a rotor impedance of 0.02 + 0.08 Ω/phase and negligible stator impedance at standstill. Consider the following statements.
1. The breakdown slip at which maximum torque occurs is 0.25
2. The starting torque is 47% of the maximum torque
3. The maximum torque developed by the motor is 1364.4 Nm
Q. Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 6

The breakdown slip is,

The ratio of the torque developed at any slip s to the maximum torque is

For starting torque s = 1, so

Starting torque is 47% of maximum torque.
Synchronous speed, 

Maximum power developed by the motor

Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 7

A 2 pole, 50 Hz induction motor supplies 15 kW to a load at a speed of 2950 rotation/min. How much power (In kW) will be supplied by the motor when the torque is doubled.


Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 7

The synchronous speed of this motor is


= 48.6 N- m
In the low-slip region, the torque-speed curve is linear, and induced torque is directly proportional to slip. Therefore, if torque double, then the new slip will be 3.33 %. The operating speed of the motor is thus
Nr = (1 – .033) Nsyn = (1 -0.033) 3000 = 2900 r/min
∴ Power supplied = τind ω

Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 10

The rotor resistance and standard reactance of a 3 phase induction motor are respectively 0.015 Ω and 0.09 Ω per phase. At normal voltage the full load slip is 3 %. Find the percentage reduction in stator voltage to develop full load torque at half full load speed.


Detailed Solution for Test: Electrical Machines- 5 - Question 10

Let Ns = 1000 r.p.m
Full load speed = [1 – 0.03] × 1000 = 970 rpm.
Let the normal voltage be V1 volts.
Speed in second case = 970/2 = 485 r. p.m

We know that

Since Torque is the same in both case


Hence % reduction of stator voltage
