Scalar control of induction machine
Given a load T– characteristic, the steady-state speed can be changed by altering the T– of the motor: Pole changing Synchronous speed change with no. of poles Discrete step change in speed Variable voltage (amplitude), frequency fixed E.g. using transformer or triac Slip becomes high as voltage reduced – low efficiency Variable voltage (amplitude), variable frequency Using power electronics converter Operated at low slip frequency
