Elec A6 Induction Motors
• The induction machine is used as a motor and as a generator. However, it is most frequently used as a motor. It is the Workhorse of industry. Majority of the motors used by industry are squirrel cage induction motors. Both three-phase and single-phase motors are widely used. The induction generators are seldom used. Their typical application is the wind power plant.

Basic principles: • An emf is induced in the conducting bars as they are “cut” by the flux while the magnet is being moved. • E = BVL (Faraday’s Law) • The emf induces or produces a current I, which in term produces a force, F. • F = BIL Lorentz Force
