SECTION II
Q6. A. List the factors that determine the starting torque of the three-phase induction motor. How does this torque generally compare
with the value of the rated torque?
B. The low-voltage release of an a.c. motor-starter consists of a solenoid into which an iron plunger is drawn against a spring. The
resistance of the solenoid is 35 ohm. When connected to a 220 V, 50 Hz, a.c. 1supply the current taken is at first 2A, and when the
plunger is drawn into the “full-in” position the current falls to 0.7 A. Calculate the inductance of the solenoid for both positions of
the plunger, and the maximum value of flux-linkages in weber-turns for the “full-in” position of the plunger.
