# Motor Designs A, B, C, D

ECE 441 1
Cross-Sections of NEMA Motors

ECE 441 2
Induction Motor Applications

• Design B
– Centrifugal pumps, fans, blowers, machine
tools
• Design A
– Same characteristics as Design B, but with
higher breakdown torque
– Higher starting current limits applications

ECE 441 3
Induction Motor Applications continued

• Design C
– Higher locked-rotor torque but lower
breakdown torque than Design B
– Use to drive plunger pumps, vibrating
screens, and compressors
• Design D
– Very high locked-rotor torque and high slip
– Used for high-inertia loads such as elevators
and hoists
ECE 441 4
Induction Motor Applications continued

• Design E
– High-efficiency
– Drive loads similar to Design B, but with lower
locked-rotor, breakdown, and pull-up torque

ECE 441 5
NEMA Tables

## • Tables 5.1 – 5.7 give values of locked-

rotor torque, breakdown torque, and pull-
up torque for specific horsepower,
frequency, and synchronous speed
ratings.

ECE 441 6
Example 5.1

## • Determine the values of locked-rotor

torque, breakdown torque, and pull-up
torque that can be expected from a 3-
phase, 10-hp, 460-V, six-pole, NEMA
design C motor whose rated speed is 1150
r/m.

Locked-Rotor Torque

## • From Table 5.1, page 171 of the text, the

minimum locked-rotor torque of a 10-hp design
C motor with a synchronous speed of 1200 r/min
should be 225% of full-load torque.

Motor Performance as a function of Machine
Parameters, Slip, and Stator Voltage
• Use the “complete” equivalent circuit model,
including both the rotor and stator.

Slip at Which Maximum Torque Occurs

## • Applications which require a very high

starting torque are designed with enough
resistance so that the maximum torque
occurs at blocked rotor (s = 1).
