4 INDUCTION MOTORS INTRODUCTION It was shown how amortisseur windings on a synchronous motor could develop a starting torque without necessity of supplying an external field current to them Amortisseur windings work so well that a motor could be built without syn. motor’s main dc field circuit A machine with only amortisseur winding is called induction machine, because the rotor voltage is induced in rotor windings rather than being physically connected by wires

5 INDUCTION MOTORS INTRODUCTION Cutaway diagram of typical large cage rotor induction motor


7 INDUCTION MOTORS INTRODUCTION Typical wound rotors for induction motors, slip rings & bars connecting rotor windings to slip rings can be seen

8 INDUCTION MOTORS INTRODUCTION Cutaway of a wound-rotor induction motor Note: brushes and slip rings are shown, also rotor windings skewed to eliminate slot harmonics

9 INDUCTION MOTORS INTRODUCTION Distinguishing feature: no dc field current required to run machine Although it is possible to use an induction machine as either motor or generator, it has many disadvantages as a generator & so is rarely used as Gen. INDUCTION MOTOR CONSTRUCTION Same physical stator as syn. machine with different rotor construction There are “cage rotor” & “wound rotor”

10 INDUCTION MOTORS CONSTRUCTION A cage induction rotor consists of a series of conducting bars laid into slots carved in face of rotor & shorted at either end by large shorting rings This design is referred to as a cage rotor because of conductors arrangement on rotor A wound rotor has a complete set of 3 phase windings that are mirror images of windings on stator The 3 phase of rotor windings are usually Y-connected and end of 3 rotor wires tied to slip rings on rotor shaft The rotor currents accessible at stator brushes, where they can be examined & where extra resistance can be inserted into rotor circuit This can be used to modify torque-speed characteristic of motor Wound rotor motors more expensive, & require more maintenance due to wear associated with brushes & slip rings, therefore wound motor induction motors are rarely used

11 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS Its operation is basically same as amortisseur windings on syn. motors Development of Induced Torque Again a B S is developed, which is rotating counter- clockwise in Figure of  next slide Speed of magnetic field’s rotation is : n sync =120f e /p voltage induced in a rotor bar: e ind =(v x B).l v=velocity of bar relative to magnetic field B=magnetic flux density vector l= length of conductor in magnetic field

12 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS Development of Induced Torque

13 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS relative move of rotor w.r.t. B S result in an induced voltage in rotor bar Velocity of upper rotor bars w.r.t. B S is to right Induced voltage in upper bars is out of page, while induced voltage in the lower bars is into page This results in a current flow out of upper bars & into lower bars Since rotor assembly is inductive, peak rotor current flow produces a rotor magnetic field B R

14 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS Induced torque in machine is: T ind =kB R x B S resulting torque is counterclockwise & rotor accelerates in this direction There is a finite upper limit on motor’s speed If induction motor’s rotor were turning at syn. Speed, then rotor bars would be stationary relative to B S & there would be no induced voltage e ind =0 no rotor current & B R =0  T ind =0 Rotor will slow down, due to friction losses An induction motor can speed up to near-syn. Speed, however it can never reach syn. speed

15 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS Flowchart showing induction motor operation

16 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS Note: in normal operation, both B R & B S rotate together at syn. Speed n sync while rotor itself turn at a slower s peed Concept of Rotor Slip Voltage induced in rotor bar depends on relative speed of rotor with respect to B S Since behavior of induction motor depends on motor voltage & current, it is more logical to talk about this relative speed Two terms commonly used to define relative motion of rotor & B S, “slip speed” & “slip” “slip speed” defined as difference between syn. Speed & rotor speed n slip =n sync -n m

17 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS In which: n slip = slip speed of machine n sync = speed of magnetic fields n m = mechanical shaft speed of motor “slip” is relative speed expressed on a per-unit or percentage basis: s=n slip /n sync (x100%) s= [n sync -n m ] / n sync (x100%) or in terms of angular velocity: s= [ω sync -ω m ] / ω sync (x100%)

18 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS If rotor turn at syn. speed  s=0 while if rotor stationary  s=1 all normal motor speeds fall somewhere between those 2 limits mechanical speed of rotor shaft can be expressed in terms of syn. speed & slip n m = (1-s)n sync or ω m =(1-s)ω sync

19 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS Electrical Frequency on Rotor An induction motor works by inducing voltages in rotor of machine & because of that sometimes called rotating transformer Like a transformer, primary (stator) induces a voltage in secondary (rotor) but : Unlike a transformer, secondary frequency is not necessarily same as primary frequency If rotor of motor locked so that can not move, rotor will have the same frequency as stator

20 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS on the other hand, if rotor turns at syn. Speed, frequency on rotor will be zero what will rotor frequency be for any arbitrary rate of rotor rotation ? at n m =0 r/min, rotor frequency f r =f e Hz, and slip s=1 at n m =n syn f r =0 and slip is s=0 with any speed in between, rotor frequency is directly proportional to difference between speed of magnetic field n sync & speed of rotor n m S=[n sync -n m ] / n sync rotor frequency can be expressed as : f r =s f e

21 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS alternative forms of last expression: f r =[n sync -n m ] / n sync. f e since : n sync =120 f e /p  f r = (n sync -n m )p/(120f e ) f e f r = p/120 (n sync -n m ) Example: A 208 V, 10 hp, 4 pole, 60 Hz, Y connected induction motor has a full-load slip of 5 percent (a) what is syn. Speed of motor?

22 BASIC INDUC. MOTOR CONCEPTS ….EXAMPLE: (b) what is rotor speed of this motor at rated load? (c) what is rotor frequency of this motor at rated load? (d) what is shaft torque of this motor at rated load?

23 BASIC INDUCTION MOTOR CONCEPTS SOLUTION: (a) n sync =120 f e /p=120x60/4=1800 r/min (b) n m =(1-s) n sync =(1-0.05)(1800)=1710 r/min (c) f r =s f e = 0.95 x 60=3 Hz or f r =p/120 (n sync -n m )=4/120 (1800-1710)=3 Hz (d) T load = P out /ω m = [10 x 746]/[1710 x 2π x 1/60]= 41.7 N.m shaft load torque in English units: T load =5252 P/n where T is in lb-feet, P in hp, and n m r/min T load =5252 x 10 / (1710) = 30.7 lb. ft

24 EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT OF AN INDUCTION MOTOR Basis of an induction motor is on induction of voltage & current in its rotor (Transformer Action) equivalent circuit of an induction motor is very similar to equivalent circuit of a transformer “induction motor” is called a “singly excited” machine (opposed to “doubly excited” syn. machine) since power is supplied to only “stator circuit”

25 EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT OF AN INDUCTION MOTOR Since an induction motor does not have an independent field circuit, its model will not contain an internal voltage source such as internal generated voltage E A in a syn. Machine The equivalent circuit of induction motor can be derived from a knowledge of “transformers” and from what already know about “variation of rotor frequency” with speed in induction motors The induction motor model developed by starting with transformer model, and then realizing variable rotor frequency & other induction motor effects

26 EQUIVALENT CIRCUIT OF AN INDUCTION MOTOR Transformer Model of an Induction Motor Per-phase equivalent circuit of an induction motor

27 TRANSFORMER MODEL of INDUCTION MOTOR As shown there is certain resistance & self inductance in primary (stator) windings which must be represented in equivalent circuit of machine Stator resistance called R 1 & stator leakage reactance called X 1 These appear right at input to machine model Flux in machine is the integral of applied voltage E 1 Curve of magneto-motive force versus flux, (magnetization curve) compared to similar curve for power transformer (next slide)

28 TRANSFORMER MODEL of INDUCTION MOTOR Magnetization curve of induction motor

29 TRANSFORMER MODEL of INDUCTION MOTOR Note: slope of induction motor’s magneto-motive force-flux curve is much shallower than curve of a good transformer because there is an air gap in an induction motor which greatly increase reluctance of flux path & therefore reduces coupling between primary & secondary windings Higher reluctance caused by air gap means a higher magnetizing reactance X M in equivalent circuit will have a much smaller value (larger susceptance B M ) than its value in an ordinary transformer

30 TRANSFORMER MODEL of INDUCTION MOTOR Primary internal stator voltage E 1 coupled to secondary E R by an ideal transformer with an effective turns ratio a eff Effective turns ratio a eff easy to determined for a wound-rotor motor ratio of conductors per phase on stator to conductors per phase on rotor, modified by any pitch & distribution factor differences It is rather difficult to determine a eff clearly in cage of a case rotor motor because there are no distinct windings on cage rotor

31 TRANSFORMER MODEL of INDUCTION MOTOR In either case there is an effective turns ratio for motor Voltage E R produced in rotor in turn produces a current flow in shorted rotor (or secondary) circuit of machine Primary impedance & magnetization current of induction motor are very similar to corresponding components in a transformer equivalent circuit Induction motor equivalent circuit differs from transformer equivalent circuit primarily in effects of varying rotor frequency on rotor voltage E R and secondarily in rotor resistance R R and jX R

32 ROTOR CIRCUIT MODEL A voltage induced in rotor windings when 3 phase voltage applied to stator windings The greater the relative motion between rotor & stator magnetic fields, the greater the resulting rotor voltage & rotor frequency The largest relative motion occurs when rotor is stationary, called locked-rotor or blocked-rotor condition So largest voltage & rotor frequency are induced in rotor at that condition (locked rotor)

33 ROTOR CIRCUIT MODEL Smallest voltage (0 V) and frequency (0 Hz) occur when rotor moves at same speed as stator magnetic field (having no relative motion) magnitude & frequency of induced voltage in rotor at any speed between these extremes is proportional to the slip of motor If magnitude of induced rotor voltage at locked-rotor is ER0 magnitude at any slip : E R =s E R0 frequency of induced voltage: f r =sf e rotor has both resistance & reactance; R R a constant (except for ski effect), reactance affected in a complicated way by slip

34 ROTOR CIRCUIT MODEL reactance of an induction motor rotor depends on: inductance of rotor & frequency of voltage and current in rotor X R =ω r L R = 2π f r L R (realizing : f r =sf r )  X R =2πsf e L R =s X R0 (X R0 :blocked-rotor reactance) Resulted equivalent circuit of rotor:
