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

Types of AC motors

An AC motor requires an AC input to produce a rotating magnetic field. This field interacts with rotor conductors and makes it rotate with the stator field. The two main types of AC motors are Induction motors and Synchronous motors. The figure below shows a detailed explanation of AC motors. **Before starting the types of … Read more
