25 key differences between Squirrel cage and Wound Induction Motor

Differences between squirrel cage and wound induction motor

If we classify an induction motor based on the type of rotor used, there are two types of induction motor. The first is a Squirrel cage Induction motor, and the other is a Wound, aka slip ring Induction motor. Both these induction motors have a difference in their construction, starting, cost, and their application. This … Read more

5 Induction motor starting methods: DOL, Star-Delta & more

Induction motor starting methods

There are four methods to start a squirrel cage induction motor. These are Direct On-Line (DOL), Stator resistance, Auto-transformer, and Star-delta starting, while for a slip-ring induction motor, we prefer rotor resistance starting. Now, you might think that an induction motor is self-starting, then why do we need induction motor starting methods? Right? Don’t worry … Read more
