 The Development of Induced Torque in an
Induction Motor
τ ind = kB R ×B S

If the induction motor’s rotor were the rotor bars would be stationary relative
turning at synchronous speed to the magnetic field

## Rotor will slow down due to friction

 Slip of induction motor
The speed of induction motor must always be less than the
synchronous speed and as the load increased the spree of the
motor will decrease. The difference between the speed of the
stator and the actual speed of the rotor is known as the slip
speed of induction motor.
nslip =nsync − nm

## Where nslip = slip speed of the machine

nsync = speed of the magnetic field.
nm = mechanical shaft speed of the motor
The slip can be expressed in rpm and radians per second, but
usually it is expressed as a fraction or percentage of synchronous
speed n n − nm
Slip, s = slip × 100% = sync × 100%
nsync nsync

## Slip may also be described

ωsyncin − ωm of angular velocity, ω .
terms
s= x100 %
ωsync
 The Electrical Frequency on the Rotor
When the rotor is stationary, rotor conductor are being cut by the
rotating flux at the synchronous speed , the frequency of rotor current
(or emf) is the same as that of supply frequency.
And rotor frequency may be expressed as:

f r =sf e
since slip is given by

nsync n
S = m

nsync
And since nsync =120fe / P,

fr =
P
( nsync − nm )
120

## This shows that the relative difference between synchronous speed

and the rotor speed will determine the rotor frequency.
 The Equivalent Circuit of an Induction Motor

## The transformer model or an induction motor, with rotor and stator

connected by an ideal transformer of turns ratio aeff .

– The Rotor Circuit Model

– The reactance of an induction motor rotor depends on the inductance of the rotor and the frequency
of the voltage and current in the rotor. With a rotor inductance of LR, the rotor reactance is:

– The Final Equivalent Circuit
To produce the final per-phase equivalent circuit for an induction motor,
it is necessary to refer the rotor part of the model over to the stator side.
If the effective turns ratio of an induction motor is aeff , then the
transformed rotor voltage becomes

Calculation via thevenin equivalent method
1. Derive the thevenin voltage (potential divider rule):

jX m
VTH = Vφ
R1 + jX 1 + jXm
Hence the magnitude of thevenin voltage:

Xm
VTH = Vφ

R12 + ( X 1 + mX)

## Since Xm >> X1 , Xm >> R1, therefore the magnitude may be approximated

to:

Xm
VTH ≈ Vφ
2. Find the thevenin impedance X1 + X m

Take out the source and replace it with a short circuit, and derive the
equivalent impedances.

## Since Xm >> X1, Xm >> R1, jX m ( R1 + jX)1

ZTH =
R1 + jX 1 + jXm

 X m

Representing the stator circuit by the thevenin equivalent, and
adding back the rotor circuit, we can derive I2,

If a graph of Torque and speed were
plotted based upon changes in slip
Comments on the Induction Motor Torque Speed
Curve

• Induced Torque is zero at synchronous speed.
• The graph is nearly linear between no load and full load (at
near synchronous speeds).
• Max torque is known as pull out torque or breakdown
torque
• Starting torque is very large.
• Torque for a given slip value would change to the square of
the applied voltage.
• If the rotor were driven faster than synchronous speed, the
motor would then become a generator.
• If we reverse the direction of the stator magnetic field, it
would act as a braking action to the rotor – plugging.

Maximum (Pullout) Torque in an Induction
Motor
Based upon the maximum power transfer theorem,
maximum power transfer will be achieved when the
magnitude of source impedance matches the load
impedance. Since
Z the=Rsource

 
• From above equation we conclude that:
1. Torque is related to the square of the applied voltage
2. Torque is also inversely proportional to the machine
impedances
3. Slip during maximum torque is dependent upon rotor
resistance
4. Torque is also independent to rotor resistance as shown in
the maximum torque equation

## • By adding more resistance to the machine impedances, we

can vary:
1. Starting torque
2. Max pull out speed
