# Lab 2: Three Phase Induction Motor

Introduction
An induction motor is coupled to a permanent magnet DC generator which acts as a
load to the induction motor. Torque is induced in the DC generator proportional to the
current flowing in the DC generator armature. This torque will load the induction
motor.

The output power from the induction motor Pout can be assumed to be linearly related
to the output power from the DC generator (VDC x IDC) by:

## Pout = n(VDC IDC)

Hence, ignoring the rotational losses, the torque induced by the induction motor is
(m is the motor speed):

ind =

Discussion and Conclusion
In theory, the torque-speed curve is nearly linear between no load and full load. The
rotor resistance is significantly higher than the rotor reactance, hence the rotor current,
the rotor magnetic field, and the induced torque increase linearly with increasing slip.

When under no load or the rotor turns at synchronous speed, the slip becomes zero,
whereas at full load or when the rotor is stationary, the slip value becomes one. If
rotor speeds beyond the synchronous speed, the torque becomes negative and the
machine will stop and starts to act as a generator.

The speed at maximum torque is highly affected by the rotor resistance although
maximum torque is independent of the rotor resistance. As the rotor resistance
increases, the pullout speeds of the motor decrease. The curves of power output
versus speed will be similar to those of torque versus speed.

We have taken 2 set of data from two trials with different motors. The results from
both experiments show similar results however slightly difference occurred. This may
be due to the continuous rotating that produce heat that affect the experiment and
different motor performs different specifications. Figure 3 and Figure 4 show the
characteristic of torque-speed and power-speed curves which are similar as predicted.
The maximum power occurs at a slightly higher rotor speed than the maximum torque.
The output is plotted relative to the motor speed since the torque and power output
obtained from the experiment is normalized.

In conclusion, this lab experiment was successful when the results calculated match
the theory. The results can be improved if more switches on the resistive load box are
used. This would further reduce the increments between the resistive values and result
to obtain a smoother graph.
