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 …

Isolated Induction Generator

An Isolated Induction Generator means that an induction machine can work as a generator even without an external supply system. A three-phase delta-connected capacitor bank is connected across the terminals of the machine as shown in the figure below. It provides a necessary excitation to the machine. The residual flux present in the machine provides …
