Types of Single-phase Induction motors and their Applications

types of single phase induction motors

There are 5 types of single-phase induction motors on the basis of their starting methods: Resistance start, Capacitor start, Capacitor start capacitor run, Permanent Capacitor, and shaded-pole single-phase induction motor. Each of them is discussed in detail below. A single-phase induction motor creates an alternating magnetic field on giving an AC supply to its windings. … Read more

Single phase Induction motor: Construction, Working & Starting methods

single phase induction motor

A single-phase induction motor is a type of AC motor which consists of a single-phase winding on the stator and requires a single-phase AC supply to create a working flux for the motor. But have you ever thought, why do we need a single-phase induction motor when we already have a three-phase induction motor?It is … Read more

Synchronous Motor: Working principle, Starting methods & Types

synchronous motor

A Synchronous motor is a type of AC motor which runs at a constant speed, known as synchronous speed. The rotor in a synchronous motor always maintains synchronism with the rotating magnetic field of the stator. Even the load variations do not alter the motor’s synchronism. Hence, synchronous motors are used in constant speed applications. … Read more

IoT project ideas: 3 New project ideas for June 2021

IoT project ideas

IoT (or the Internet of Things) is a network of billions of physical devices communicating and sharing information over the internet. With IoT, we can provide a physical object a digital brain. Seems impossible, right? But, that’s a small part of the IoT universe. There are no limitations of IoT project ideas. It could be … Read more

Induction Motor: Construction, Working principle & Advantages

induction motor

An Induction motor is the most widely used AC motor in industrial and domestic applications. Now you might think, why is it so? It is because of the low cost, simple and rugged construction of the motor. Moreover, it has good operating characteristics with an efficiency as high as 90%. An induction motor does not … Read more
