Speed of induction motor
Given that both the rotors are directly coupled.
If rotating field is in the opposite direction to that of rotor speed.

If rotating field is in the same direction to that of rotor speed,
Speed = 1500 – 1000 = 500 rpm
A cylindrical rotor synchronous motor is used to improve the power factor of a load 5 MW at a power factor of 0.6 lag. The motor is required to meet an additional demand of 0.2 MW and raise the overall power factor to 0.8 (lag). If the efficiency of the motor is 75%. The power factor of the motor is – (up to two decimal places)
Rating of load is –
P_{1} = 5 MW, cos ϕ_{1} = 0.6
Q_{1} = P_{1} tan ϕ

Required motor output = 0.2 MW
Efficiency = 0.75
Total load = 5 + 0.267 = 5.267 MW
New power factor cos ϕ = 0.8 lag.
Reactive power, Q = P tan ϕ

MVA supplied by motor, Q_{2} = Q_{1} – Q = 6.67 – 3.95 = 2.72 MVAR
Q_{2} = P_{2} tan ϕ_{2}
⇒ 2.72 = 0.267 tanϕ_{2}
⇒ ϕ_{2} = 84.39°
Cosϕ_{2} = 0.098
