Hz with a slip of 0.05 and the proper voltage for this machine.( the input frequency is decreased to 50 Hz, then the applied

through this specific torque-speed point. The two curves are plotted below. As you can see, only the 0.172 Ω solution is
realistic, since the 0.0059 Ω solution passes through this torque-speed point at an unstable location on the back side of
the torque-speed curve.

across-the-line starting. )

7-21. In this chapter, we learned that a step-down autotransformer could be used to reduce the starting current drawn by an
induction motor. While this technique works, an autotransformer is relatively expensive. A much less expensive way to
reduce the starting current is to use a device called Y- Δ starter. If an induction motor is normally Δ -connected, it is
possible to reduce its phase voltage Vφ (and hence its starting current) by simply re-connecting the stator windings in Y
during starting, and then restoring the connections to Δ when the motor comes up to speed. Answer the following
(a) How would the phase voltage at starting compare with the phase voltage under normal running conditions?
(b) How would the starting current of the Y-connected motor compare to the starting current if the motor remained in a
Δ -connection during starting?
((a) The phase voltage at starting would be 57.7% of the phase voltage under normal running conditions. (b) the
line current is reduced by a factor of 3 in a Y- Δ starter. I L , Δ = 3I L ,Y )

7-22. A 460-V 100-hp four-pole Δ -connected 60-Hz three-phase induction motor has a full-load slip of 5 percent, an efficiency
of 92 percent, and a power factor of 0.87 lagging. At start-up, the motor develops 1.9 times the full-load torque but draws
7.5 times the rated current at the rated voltage. This motor is to be started with an autotransformer reduced voltage starter.
(a) What should the output voltage of the starter circuit be to reduce the starting torque until it equals the rated torque of
the motor?
(b) What will the motor starting current and the current drawn from the supply be at this voltage?
((a) VT 2 = 334 V , (b) I line = 463 A )

7-23. A wound-rotor induction motor is operating at rated voltage and frequency with its slip rings shorted and with a load of
about 25 percent of the rated value for the machine. If the rotor resistance of this machine is doubled by inserting external
resistors into the rotor circuit, explain what happens to the following:

The rotor current will increase. (e) The induced torque will adjust to supply the load’s torque requirements at the new
speed. This will depend on the shape of the load’s torque-speed characteristic. For most loads, the induced torque will
decrease. (f) The output power will generally decrease: POUT = τ ind ↓ ωm ↑ , (g) The rotor copper losses (including the
external resistor) will increase. , (h) The overall efficiency η will decrease.)

7-25. When it is necessary to stop an induction motor very rapidly, many induction motor controllers reverse the direction of
rotation of the magnetic fields by switching any two stator leads. When the direction of rotation of the magnetic fields is
reversed, the motor develops an induced torque opposite to the current direction of rotation, so it quickly stops and tries to
start turning in the opposite direction. If power is removed from the stator circuit at the moment when the rotor speed goes
through zero, then the motor has been stopped very rapidly. This technique for rapidly stopping an induction motor is
called plugging. The motor of Problem 7-19 is running at rated conditions and is to be stopped by plugging.
