UNIT: Electrical Power Systems TOPIC: AC Motors REFERENCES: (exclude class texts; include page numbers)   CXC Teacher’s Module #5 for Electrical discipline Halls, M. Basic Electricity and Electronics pg37-48

PRE REQUISITES: Knowledge:- students should know:  The principle of operation of dc machines;  How to determine direction of induced emf and motion Skill:- students should know how to:
  Work in groups Sketch schematic diagrams

   Motor Laptop and Multimedia Projector Videos / Slides   

For each group / student
Project components as described in Activity sheet #2 Markers, blank paper Activity sheets

students will be engaged in: Identifying / formulating a problem Designing and Planning an experimental procedure Setting-up and executing experimental work Observing and measuring Recording of data and observations Interpreting and evaluating data and observations Communicating scientific ideas. OBJECTIVES: At the end of the lesson.CONCEPT STATEMENT: Electrical power systems are necessary for the generation. One component of this system is the induction motor which converts electrical energy from ac into mechanical energy. distribution and transmission of electricity to consumers. students will be able to:  State the two types of AC motors  State the advantages and disadvantages of induction motors  Stipulate where induction are used  identify the construction features of the stator and the rotors used in the induction motor  Correlate the 3-phase current to the flux position and hence the rotor position in a 3-phase induction motor  Describe a Universal Motor  Describe the Principle of Operation of Single Phase Induction Motors  Draw the types of Single Phase Induction Motors  Build a Single Phase Induction Motors PROCESS SKILLS: During this lesson. observations and arguments Applying scientific ideas and methods to solve qualitative and quantitative problems Decision-making based on examination of evidence and arguments Extracting from available information data relevant to a particular situation □ □ ☑ ☑ □ □ □ □ □ ☑ Classification Knowledge Knowledge Knowledge Comprehension Application Knowledge Knowledge Comprehension Psychomotor . Induction motors are widely used in domestic and industrial applications to make work done more efficiently and effectively.

ACTIVITIES: Introduction: T presents video S guess name of topic based on video T introduces lessen and objectives for the session Development: Teacher makes session 1 multimedia presentation S work in groups to do Activity based on presentation S discuss material and give T their findings T consolidates responses with the help of presentation S go into group again for discussion on types of ac motors S summarizes information and presents their findings T consolidates with slides S do activity 3 in groups Consolidation: S complete formative assessment T summarises .
