A 125 W, 4-pole, 110 V, 50 Hz single phase induction motor delivers rated output at a slip of 6%. The total copper loss at full load is 25 Watts. Rotational loss may be assumed to be 25 Watts. Neglecting stator copper loss, the full-load efficiency of the motor would be:
Total copper loss; Pcu = 25 Watt
∴ Input power to motor,
∴ Efficiency of motor,
The stepping angle for a 3 - stack, 16-tooth variable reluctance motor is:
Number of stacks or phases, n =3
Number of teeth or poles, P= 16
∴ Stepping angle,
Consider the following statements related to an universal motor:
1. An universal motor runs on d.c. as well as on a.c.
2. No extra winding is required in a universal motor for ac operation.
3. The direction of rotation of universal motor can be reversed by reversing either the field or armature leads, but not both.
4. Universal motors are designed for operation at low speeds (less than 3500 rpm).
Of these, the correct statements are:
⇒ The compensating winding is required in an universal motor for ac operation to neutralize reactance voltage.
⇒ Universal motors are designed for operation at high speeds (> 3500 rpm).
An 8-pole, 50 Hz, single phase induction motor is running at 690 rpm. It’s slip w.r.t. backward and forward fields respectively are:
Single phase ac motors are classified on the basis of
