Construction : Conversion of electrical power into mechanical power takes place in the rotating part of an electric motor. In A.C. motors, rotor receives electric power by induction in exactly the same way as the secondary of
A table showing the different parts of motor, the material used for the parts and function of the parts : Parts Material Function Stator frame Case iron Supports the core,protects inner-parts. Stator core Silicon steel Houses stator
The capacitor is an electrical component used to store charge. A capacitor consists of two conducting plates separated by a dielectric. Capacitor has a properly to block d.c current and pass a.c. current. A passive component which
In case of 3Ø squirrel cage motor has low starting torque. This is due to the low Rotor Resistance. Then, the starting torque with increase but at the same time their will be more copper loss and
Synchronous Motor Induction Motor Synchronous motor construction is complicated. Induction motor construction is simpler, particularly in case of cage rotor. This is Not self starting. This is self Starting Separate DC source is required for rotor excitation.
