2 Introduction to hysteresis motor Constructional features Theory of hysteresis motor Torque-speed characteristics Other features of hysteresis motor Applications Modeling of hysteresis motor Summary References

3 Synchronous motor with uniform air gap and without dc excitation. Starts by virtue of hysteresis & eddy currents induced in the rotor by action of rotating mmf of the stator winding Operates at synchronous speed. May operate from 1ø or 3ø supply Utilizes the phenomenon of hysteresis to produce mechanical torque

4 The cylindrical stator structure is identical to that of conventional induction or synchronous motors and is fitted with a three-phase or a single-phase winding, with an auxiliary winding and series capacitor for single-phase operation Rotor of a hysteresis motor is a smooth solid cylinder of hard steel(that has high hysteresis loss) and does not carry any winding. It is made of special magnetic material such as magnetically hard cobalt or chrome steel having very large hysteresis loop.

5 The axis SS' of the stator m.m.f. wave revolves at synchronous speed, because of hysteresis the magnetization of the rotor lags behind the inducing m.m.f. wave. The axis RR' of the rotor flux wave lags behind the axis of the stator m.m.f. wave by the hysteresis lag angle "α". If the rotor is stationary, starting torque is produced proportional to the product of the fundamental components of the stator m.m.f. and rotor flux and the sine of the torque angle " α ". While the rotor is accelerating, the lag angle " α " remains constant if the flux is constant, since the angle " α " depends merely on the hysteresis loop of the rotor and is independent of the rate at which the loop is traversed.

6 Stator magnetic field produces eddy currents in the rotor. They produce their own magnetic field. Thus, there is an additional torque on the rotor due to these eddy currents. The eddy current loss is given by p e =k e f 2 2 B 2 where f 2 is frequency of eddy currents Also p e =k e s 2 f 1 2 B 2 where s is slip and f 1 is stator frequency Hence torque is given by T e =p e /sw s The hysteresis loss is given by p h =k h f 2 B 1.6 Also p h =k h sf 1 B 1.6 Hence torque is given by T h =p h /sw s

7 The motor develops constant torque right up to synchronous speed. Hysteresis motors can synchronize any load they can accelerate, regardless of the inertia. After reaching synchronism the motors continue to run at synchronous speed and adjust their torque angle to develop torques required by the loads. Deviations from the ideal speed torque curves. *Curve A-when starting torque is not required *Curve B-when a high starting torque is required.

8 It has the ability to pull into synchronization any load that is within its capacity to start and accelerate. This motor is made in very small sizes only. Hysteresis motors are limited to small size by the difficulty of controlling rotor losses caused by imperfections in the stator mmf wave The outstanding special feature of a hysteresis motor is the production of nearly constant, ripple-free torque during starting. With provisions for pole changing in the stator, the motor is multispeed.

9 It has a very low noise level compared to single-phase induction motor because it operates at one speed(synchronous)and its rotor is smooth. With a permanent capacitor stator, hysteresis motor is the smoothest running, quietest single phase motor and is preferred for quality sound reproduction equipments like record players, tape recorders etc The most common application is for electric clocks and other timing devices Hysteresis motors are used for rotating gyroscope rotors in inertial navigation and control systems

10 Hystersis motor basically has the same model as that of PM synchronous motor except that the mode of the rotor is replaced by a nonlinear model of the hysteresis material


12 The magnetic flux is radial in the air gap and tangential in the hysteresis rotor material. The stator self and mutual inductances are almost independent of the rotor position. The rotor hysteresis ring is made of cobalt-steel material (as in permanent magnet machines) which has a reasonable electrical resistivity.

13 The voltage and flux linkage equations are The electromagnetic torque is given by Te=(3/2)*(P/2)*(λ ds i qs -λ qs i ds )

14 The basic idea about hysteresis motor has been dealt-its constructional features, operation and its applications also. A circuit model of the hysteresis motor was shown and the modeling of the motor was done.
