Cutaway diagram of a typical large cage rotor induction motor Sketch of cage rotor EEEB344 Electromechanical Devices Chapter 7 Induction machine – the rotor voltage that produces the rotor current and the rotor magnetic field is induced in the rotor windings rather than being physically connected by wires. No dc field current is required to run the machine. 1. Induction Motor Construction There are basically 2 types of rotor construction: a) Squirrel Cage - no windings and no slip rings b) Wound rotor - It has 3 phase windings, usually Y connected, and the winding ends are connected via slip rings. Wound rotor are known to be more expensive due to its maintenance cost to upkeep the slip rings, carbon brushes and also rotor windings. 2

EEEB344 Electromechanical Devices Chapter 7 2. Basic Induction Motor Concepts The Development of Induced Torque in an Induction Motor When current flows in the stator, it will produce a magnetic field in stator as such that B s (stator magnetic field) will rotate at a speed: 120 e sync f n P = Where f e is the system frequency in hertz and P is the number of poles in the machine. This rotating magnetic field B s passes over the rotor bars and induces a voltage in them. The voltage induced in the rotor is given by: e ind = ( v x B ) l Hence there will be rotor current flow which would be lagging due to the fact that the rotor has an inductive element. And this rotor current will produce a magnetic field at the rotor,
