HW(4) Three Phase Induction Motors
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1. If the number of poles in the stator of the induction motors are doubled, will its
synchronous speed also doubled?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2. Why does the rotor of the induction motor rotates slower than the revolving field.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. Mention two advantages of wound rotor over squirrel cage induction motor.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. Explain why both frequency and induced voltage in the rotor of the induction motor
decrease with speed increasing.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. How can we change the direction of rotation of the induction motor?

7. Two 480-V, l00-hp induction motors are manufactured. One is designed for 50-Hz
operation, and one is designed for 60-Hz operation, but they are otherwise similar. Which
of these machines is larger?
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. A 3-phase 6 poles induction motor is connected to 50 Hz supply, the voltage induced in the
rotator bars is 4 V when the rotor is locked. If the motor turns in the same direction as the
