1 Induction Motor•Why induction motor (IM)?–Robust; No brushes. No contacts on rotor shaft–High Power/Weight ratio compared to Dc motor–Lower Cost/Power–Easy to manufacture–Almost maintenance-free, except for bearing and other mechanical parts•Disadvantages–Essentially a “fixed-speed” machine–Speed is determined by the supply frequency–To vary its speed need a variable frequency supply

17 Example 4.2 A no‑load test conducted on a 30 hp, 835 r/min, 440 V, 3‑phase, 60 Hz squirrel‑cage induction motor yielded the following results:No‑load voltage (line‑to‑line): 440 VNo‑load current: 14 ANo‑load power: 1470 WResistance measured between two terminals: 0.5 The locked‑rotor test, conducted at reduced voltage, gave the following results:Locked‑rotor voltage (line‑to‑line): 163 VLocked‑rotor power: 7200 WLocked‑rotor current: 60 ADetermine the equivalent circuit of the motor.Solution:Assuming the stator windings are connected in way, the resistance per phase is:From the no‑load test:
18 From the blocked‑rotor test The blocked‑rotor reactance is:
20 Example 5.3 The following test results are obtained from a three-phase 60 hp, 2200 V, six‑pole, 60 Hz squirrel‑cage induction motor.(1) No‑load test:Supply frequency = 60 Hz, Line voltage = 2200 VLine current = 4.5 A, Input power = 1600 W(2) Blocked‑rotor test:Frequency = 15 Hz, Line voltage = 270 VLine current = 25 A, Input power = 9000 W(3) Average DC resistance per stator phase: 2.8 (a) Determine the no‑load rotational loss.(b) Determine the parameters of the IEEE‑recommended equivalent circuit(c) Determine the parameters (Vth, Rth, Xth) for the Thevenin equivalent circuit of Fig.5.16.
