Reluctance Motor

A single phase synchronous Reluctance Motor is basically the same as the single cage type induction motor. The stator of the motor has the main and auxiliary winding. The stator of the single phase reluctance and induction motor are same. The rotor of a reluctance motor is a squirrel cage with some rotor teeth removed …

Shaded Pole Induction Motor

Definition: The shaded pole induction motor is simply a self-starting single-phase induction motor whose one of the pole is shaded by the copper ring. The copper ring is also called the shaded ring. This copper ring act as a secondary winding for the motor. The shaded pole motor rotates only in one particular direction, and …

Split Phase Induction Motor

The Split Phase Motor is also known as a Resistance Start Motor. It has a single cage rotor, and its stator has two windings known as main winding and starting winding. Both the windings are displaced 90 degrees in space. The main winding has very low resistance and a high inductive reactance whereas the starting …

Capacitor Start Induction Motor

Capacitor Start Motors are single-phase Induction Motors that employ a capacitor in the auxiliary winding circuit to produce a greater phase difference between the current in the main and the auxiliary windings. The name capacitor starts itself shows that the motor uses a capacitor for the purpose of starting. The figure below shows the connection …
