Advantages of rotating field.Construction detail
±Stator ±Rotor ±Slip rings
Types of Rotors
±Salient pole type ±Round rotor type
Electrical Eng Department, SCET2
Easy to Insulate
±Stationary Armature winding, ±Rotating field winding
Brushes required only to carry field current which is veryless compared to load currentNo mechanical forces developed in Armature winding..Deformation will be negligibleCooling is more easier and more effective.Less slip rings required and hence easy to install andmaintain.design and size of slip rings are simple.More output per weight of machine.
