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
