UNIT I 1. What is a synchronous reluctance motor? A reluctance motor that utilizes an ac rotating field, which allows for the possibility of extremely smooth torque and good operation to low speeds. 2. What are the types of rotor in synchronous reluctance motor? 1: Salient rotor 2. Radially laminated rotor 3. Axially laminated rotor 3. Mention some applications of synchronous reluctance motor. 1. Fiber-spinning mills 2. Industrial process equipment 3. Metering pumps 4. Wrapping and folding machines 5. What are the advantages of increasing LdILq ratio in synchronous reluctance motor? 1. Motor power factor increases. 2. 12R losses reduced. 3. Reduced volt-ampere ratings of the inverter driving the machine. 6. Compare synchronous reluctance motor and induction motor. Synchronous reluctance motor Induction motor

Better efficiency Highcost Low power factor. Efficiency is low compared with synchronous reluctance motor. Used for high power application. Used for low and medium power application. Lowcost High power factor. .

7. . Write down the torque equation of synchronous reluctance motor.

8. thus eliminating electromagnetic spinning losses. hence synchronous reluctance. 12. low-cost materials. Draw the torque-angle characteristics of synchronous reluctance motor. Synchronous reluctance machine rotors can be constructed entirely from high strength. What is the application of Vernier motor? The Vernier motor is mainly used where require low speed and high torque. 9. Draw the speed-torque characteristics of synchronous reluctance motor. . 10. 2. 13. 11. There is no concern with demagnetization. Draw the steady-state phasor diagram of synchronous reluctance motor. Mention some advantages and disadvantages of synchronous reluctance Motor Advantages 1. There need be no excitation field at zero torque. What is Vernier motor? Vernier motor is a permanent magnet motor and has a high torque at low speed. 3. It operates on the principles of a Vernier.

Power factor 2. Compared to induction motor it is slightly heavier and has low power factor. 2. the power factor can be improved. High cost than induction motor. 3. But Increasing the saliency ratio . 1. 2. Ability of the rotor to withstand high speeds. Need speed synchronization to inverter output frequency by using rotor position sensor and sensor less control. What arc the design considerations in synchronous reluctance motor? 1. This torque is called reluctance torque. 15. Copper loss and core loss 3. High reliability. 16. What is reluctance torque is synchronous reluctance motor? The torque exerted by the reluctance motor because of the tendency of the salient poles to align themselves in the minimum reluctance position. 14. Negligible zero-torque spinning losses. Efficiency .Disadvantages 1. High output power capability. Cost 4. 3. Write down any two properties of synchronous reluctance motor. 4.
