Torque-Slip (speed)
Characteristics of
Induction Motor (IM)
Version 2 EE IIT, Kharagpur

Instructional Objectives
•
Derivation of the expression for the gross torque developed as a function of slip
(speed) of Induction motor
•
Sketch the above characteristics of torque-slip (speed), explaining the various features
•
Derive the expression of maximum torque and the slip (speed) at which it occurs
•
Draw the above characteristics with the variation in input (stator) voltage and rotor
resistance
Introduction
In the previous, i.e. third, lesson of this module, starting with the formulas for the
induced emfs per phase in both stator and rotor windings, the equivalent circuit per phase
of the three-phase induction motor (IM), has been derived. The relation between the rotor
input, rotor copper loss and rotor output (gross) are derived next. Finally, the various
losses
−
copper losses (stator/rotor), iron loss (stator) and mechanical loss, including the
determination of efficiency, and also power flow diagram, are presented. In this lesson,
firstly, the torque-slip (speed) characteristics of IM, i.e., the expression of the gross
torque developed as a function of slip, will be derived. This is followed by the sketch of
the different characteristics, with the variations in input (stator) voltage and rotor
resistance, along with the features. Lastly, the expression of maximum torque developed
and the slip (speed) at which it occurs, are derived.

In a similar way, the output power (gross) developed (W) is the loss in the fictitious
resistance in the equivalent circuit as shown earlier, which is
