The principle of operation of the induction machine is based on the generation of a rotating

magnetic field. Let us understand this idea better.

Click on the following steps in sequence to get a graphical picture. It is suggested that

the reader read the text before clicking the link.

• Consider a cosine wave from 0 to 360◦. This sine wave is plotted with unit amplitude.

• Now allow the amplitude of the sine wave to vary with respect to time in a simisoidal

fashion with a frequency of 50Hz.Let the maximum value of the amplitude is, say, 10

units. This waveform is a pulsating sine wave.

• Now consider a second sine wave, which is displaced by 120◦ from the first (lagging). . .

• and allow its amplitude to vary in a similar manner, but with a 120◦ time lag.

• and allow its amplitude to change as well with a 240◦ time lag. Now we have three

pulsating sine waves.

icpk = Im cos(2π.50.t − 240◦ ) (3)

Let us see what happens if we sum up the values of these three sine waves at every angle.

The result really speaks about Tesla’s genius. What we get is a constant amplitude travelling

sine wave!

In a three phase induction machine, there are three sets of windings — phase A winding,

phase B and phase C windings. These are excited by a balanced three-phase voltage supply.

This would result in a balanced three phase current. Equations 1 — 3 represent the currents

that flow in the three phase windings. Note that they have a 120◦ time lag between them.

Further, in an induction machine, the windings are not all located in the same place.

They are distributed in the machine 120◦ away from each other (more about this in the

section on alternators). The correct terminology would be to say that the windings have

their axes separated in space by 120◦ . This is the reason for using the phase A, B and C

since waves separated in space as well by 120◦ .

When currents flow through the coils, they generate mmfs. Since mmf is proportional to

current, these waveforms also represent the mmf generated by the coils and the total mmf.

Further, due to magnetic material in the machine (iron), these mmfs generate magnetic flux,

which is proportional to the mmf (we may assume that iron is infinitely permeable and

non-linear effects such as hysterisis are neglected). Thus the waveforms seen above would

also represent the flux generated within the machine. The net result as we have seen is

a travelling flux wave. The x-axis would represent the space angle in the machine as one

travels around the air gap. The first pulsating waveform seen earlier would then represent

the a-phase flux, the second represents the b-phase flux and the third represents the c-phase.

This may be better visualized in a polar plot. The angles of the polar plot represent the

space angle in the machine, i.e., angle as one travels around the stator bore of the machine.

Click on the links below to see the development on a polar axes.

• This plot shows the pulsating wave at the zero degree axes. The amplitude is maximum

at zero degree axes and is zero at 90◦ axis. Positive parts of the waveform are shown

in red while negative in blue. Note that the waveform is pulsating at the 0 − 180◦ axis

and red and blue alternate in any given side. This corresponds to the sinewave current

changing polarity. Note that the maximum amplitude of the sinewave is reached only

along the 0 − 180◦ axis. At all other angles, the amplitude does not reach a maximum

of this value. It however reaches a maximum value which is less than that of the peak

occuring at the 0 − 180◦ axis. More exactly, the maximum reached at any space angle

θ would be equal to cosθ times the peak at the 0 − 180◦ axis. Further, at any space

angle θ, the time variation is sinusoidal with the frequency and phase lag being that

of the excitation, and amplitude being that corresponding to the space angle.

• This plot shows the pulsating waveforms of all three cosines. Note that the first is

pulsating about the 0 − 180◦ axis, the second about the120◦ − 300◦ axis and the third

at 240◦ − 360◦axis.

• This plot shows the travelling wave in a circular trajectory. Note that while individual

pulsating waves have maximum amplitude of 10, the resultant has amplitude of 15.

If f1 is the amplitude of the flux waveform in each phase, the travelling wave can then

be represented as

2π 2π 4π 4π

f (t) = f1 cos ωt cos θ + f1 cos(ωt − ) cos(θ − ) + f1 cos(ωt − ) cos(θ − )

= f1 cos(ωt − θ) (4)

1. what is the interpretation of the pulsating plots of the animation? If one wants to

know the ‘a’ phase flux at a particular angle for all instants of time, how can it be

obtained?

2. What will this time variation look like? It is obviously periodic. What will be the

amplitude and frequency?
