Polyphase Induction Motor
 In electric motor, conversion of electrical power to mechanical power takes place in the rotating
part of the machine.
 Invented by “Nikola Tesla”
Two Main Parts
1. Rotors- rotor winding is the moving part
2. Armature- the stationary parts
Rotor
 Rotor windings receives power through induction which is similar to the secondary winding of the
transformer. When current flows through the secondary winding, it creates an electromagnetic
field causing the rotor to move because of the interaction of magnetic fields between stator and
rotor winding.
Basic Principle of Operation
 Application of Faraday’s Law
- The long force on a conductor
 Faraday’s Law of Magnetic Induction
Two General Types of Rotor
1. Squirrel Cage (SCRIM)
2. Wound Rotor (WRIM)
Stator- use whole coiled loop winding which has the following;
1.
2.
3.
4.
There are as many coils in the entire winding as there are slots.
The number of coils per phase is equal to slots per phase.
The number of coils in each pole group per phase equals slots per pole times phase.
Coil in each group is always connected in series.
IGBT’s – Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor; can operate at frequencies up to 20 kV
GTO’s – Gate-Turn-Off (thyristor)
-
Can handle currents of several flow ampere at voltage of up to 5Kv
Converter- (frequency converter)
-
The modern way of controlling speed and torque of motor drives
Induction Motors
 Pole Pitch- the distance between adjacent poles
 Plugging- to stop quickly the motor by reversing the rotating (through interchanging the two
stator leads or terminals)
Single Phasing
-
When one fuse is blown in a 3𝜙 IM, the motor continues to run but the current on the
remaining two lines will double.
Asynchronous Generator
-
When the induction motor rotates faster than synchronous speed, it generates electricity
which is returned to the line.
Dynamic Breaking
-
Is achieve when the armature winding AC source is replaced by a DC source
-
In SCRIM, it indicates the type of (Squirrel cage motor to be change by changing the
number) bars used in the rotors.
Code Letter
Consequent
-
Permits the synchronous speed of squirrel cage motor to be change by changing the
number of stator poles.
-
Starting and stop of motor for inching or to move the motor only for only a few second
for mechanical positioning.

Used to measured reactive power; the voltage is shift by 90% before it is applied to the
PT coil.

Slip and Rotor Speed
-
Although the rotor of induction motor rotates in the same direction as the revolving field,
it cannot do so at synchronous speed. There must be relative motion between the
revolving field and rotating rotor.
-
The difference between the synchronous speed and actual rotor speed, which is usually
specified in terms of synchronous speed as a percentage.

4. The 6-pole wound rotor induction motor is excited by a 3𝜙, 60 Hz source and the full load speed
is 1140 rpm. Calculate the frequency of the rotor and current under the following:
a.) At stand still
b.) Motor is running @ 500rpm the same direction as the revolving field.
c.) Motor is turning @ 500rpm @ different direction as the revolving field.

1200

c. When the rotor turns in the opposite direction of the revolving field, the motor speed is
negative
S=

𝑁𝑠
=
1200−(−500)
1200
= 1.417
𝑓𝑅 = 𝑆𝑓 = (1.417)(60)
𝑓𝑅 = 85Hz
Note: a slip greater than 1 implies that the motor is operating as a break. (ex. Lowering of load
in a tower crane)
d. The motor speed is positive because the rotor turns in the same direction as the revolving
speed.

𝑓𝑅 = -40Hz
Note: a negative frequency means that the phase sequence of the voltage induce in the
rotor winding is reverse.
Note: a negative slip implies that the motor is operating as a generator.

 The efficiency of induction motor as well as another operating characteristic may be determined
by performing three tests.
1. The No-load Test
2. The Load Test
3. The Stator-Resistance Test
No-Load Test of IM
When the induction motor runs @ no-load, the slip is exceedingly small thus making
𝑅𝑅
𝑆
very large and 𝐼𝑅 becomes negligible compared to 𝐼𝑃 . Thus, at no-load, the circuit consist
essentially of the magnetizing branch 𝑅𝑚 & 𝑋𝑚 only.

Lock Rotor Test (Block Rotor Test)
-
Under rated line voltage, when the rotor is lock or blocked, stator current (𝐼𝑃 ) is almost
six times its rated value. Furthermore, the slip is equal to 1 which means that
𝑅𝑅
𝑆
is still 𝑅2
where 𝑅2 is the resistance of the rotor reflected into the stator and since 𝐼𝑃 is much
greater than compared to 𝐼1 thus the magnetizing branch can be neglected.

Starting Method of Induction Motor
 Three methods are Generally Used:
1. Full-Voltage Starting
2. Reduced-Voltage Starting
3. Part Winding Starting
1. Full-Voltage Starting [Direct-On-Line (DOL)]
-
Direct applying the full voltage rating full voltage starting depends upon the following
factors:
a. Size and design of motors
b. Kind of application
c. Location of the motor in the distribution system
d. Capacity of the power system
2. Reduced-Voltage Starting
1. Compensator method – uses autotransformer to reduce voltage
2. Line resistance method
3. Wye-Delta method
Advantages of SCRIM
1. Cheaper and more
2. Slightly higher efficiency and power factor
3. Are explosive group since the risk sparking is eliminated by the absence of slip ring process
Advantages of WRIM
1. Have a much highly starting torque
2. Have a much lower starting current
3. Have a means of varying speed by the use of wound rotor
Motor Operation
Before starting, inspect the following
 Foundation and base bolt are tight
 Insulation resistance
 Rating plate voltage & frequency agree with the power supply
 Correct phase sequence for desired rotation
 Each bearing is properly connected
 Motor is free of axial thrust
 Brushes contact to slip ring is perfectly with correct spring tension
 Rotors turns freely
 Any protective devices connected and operating properly
When motor is running, inspect the following:
 Vibration
 Unusual noise
 Unusual rise temperature
 Lubrication is sufficient
 Brushes contact (whether it is producing spark)
 Proper ventilation
Starting of Induction Motor
-
At the instant the motor is started, the rotor is not running or turning, therefore, the
following friction and windage loss is zero. However, the iron loss at starting is greater
than the normal operating value because the rotor frequency 𝑓𝑅 is the same. Usually,
starting current is slots times the full-load current.

European Standard: (380V. 50Hz- 3𝜙)
Sample Problem:
1. A 3𝜙 208V induction motor having a synchronous speed 𝑁𝑠 of 1,200 rpm runs @ 140 rpm when
connected to a 215V line. Calculate the speed if the voltage increases to 240V.
Solution:
𝑆=
𝑁𝑠 −𝑁
𝑁𝑠
=
1200−1140
1200
= 0.05
When the voltage rises to 240V, the load torque and rotor resistance remains the same.

𝑆𝑥 = 𝑆𝑛 (𝐸𝑛 ) = 0.05 (240) = 0.04
𝑥
The slip speed is 0.04(1200)=48 rpm
The new speed @ 240V
𝑁𝑥 = 1200 − 48
𝑁𝑥 = 1152 𝑟𝑝𝑚
Another solution:
𝑆𝑥 =
𝑁𝑠 −𝑁𝑥
𝑁𝑠
→ 𝑁𝑥 = 𝑁𝑠 (1 − 𝑠) = 1200(1 − 0.04)
𝑁𝑥 = 1152 𝑟𝑝𝑚
2. A 3-phase IM driving a compressor runs at 873 rpm immediately after it is connected to a fixed
460V, 60Hz line. The initial cold rotor temperature is 23 degrees Celsius. The speed drops to 864
rpm after the machine has run for several hours. Calculate (a) the hot rotor resistance in terms of
the cold resistance (b) the approximate hot temperature of the rotor bars knowing they are made
of copper.
Solution:
𝑁𝑠 = 900𝑟𝑝𝑚
a.) Initial and Final slips are;
𝑆𝑛 =
900−873
900
= 0.03
𝑆𝑥 =
900−864
900
= 0.04
The voltage and torque are fixed. Consequently, the speed change is entirely due to the
change of the rotor resistance.

𝑆𝑥 = 𝑆𝑛 (𝑅𝑥 ) ; 0.04=0.03[𝑅𝑥 ]

𝑅𝑥 = 1.33𝑅𝑛
∴ the hot rotor resistance is 33% greater than the cold resistance
b.) The hot rotor temperature is:

𝑇+𝑡1
Where; 𝑡1 = 23°𝐶
𝑅
𝑡2 = [𝑅2 (𝑇 + 𝑡1 )] − 𝑇

Note: 𝑇𝑐𝑢 = 234℃ (referred to 1001 EE p.4 & Elec. Machines p.121)
𝑡2 = [

𝑡2 = 107.81℃
Remember:
Assume the synchronous speed of the motor is nearest to its operating speed
(rotor speed).
3. A 3-phase wound rotor IM has a rating of 110kW, 1760rpm. 2.3kV 60Hz. Three external resistance
of 2 Ω are connected in wye, across the rotor slip ring. Under this condition, the motor develops
a torque of 300N.m at the speed of 1000rpm. Calculate (a) the speed for a torque of 400N.m (b)
the value of the external resistance so that the motor develops 10kW at 200rpm.

𝑆𝑛 =

𝑆𝑛 = 0.444
Since the voltage and resistance are fixed;
𝑇

𝑆𝑥 = 𝑆𝑛 (𝑇𝑥 ) = 0.444 [300] = 0.592
𝑛
∴ the speed is;
𝑁𝑥 = 𝑁𝑠 (1 − 𝑠) = 1800(1 − 0.592)
𝑁𝑥 = 733 𝑟𝑝𝑚
