Assignment 1

1. Why Induction motor is are called “Asynchronous Motor”?
2. What is the difference between squirrel cage and slip ring induction motor?
3. Why single phase induction motor is not self-starting?
4. Where do we require single-phase induction motor?
5. What are the different types of Induction Motor? Explain the construction of 3-phase induction motor is brief.
6. Draw and explain the torque-slip characteristics of typical 3-phase induction motor. Mark the starting torque and
maximum torque on the diagram so drawn.
7. Three-phase induction motor is self-starting but 3-phase synchronous motor is not self-starting. Explain why?
8. A 12-pole, 3-phase induction alternator is coupled to an engine running at 1500 rpm. It supplied a 3-phase induction
motor having a full load speed of 1440 rpm. Find the percentage slip, frequency of rotor current and number of poles
of motor.
9. The rotor speed of a 6-pole 50 Hz induction motor is 960 rpm. Find the percentage slip.A 3-phase induction motor
connected from a 3-phase, 50 Hz a.c. supply, and runs at 720 rpm and has 4% slip. How many numbers of poles in
motor
