Induction Motor MCQs Part 11

## A change of 4% of supply voltage to an induction motor will accordingly produce a change of approximately

A change of 4% of supply voltage to an induction motor will accordingly produce a change of approximately:

1. 4% in the rotor torque
2. 8% in the rotor torque
3. 16% in the rotor torque
4. 2% in the rotor torque

Correct answer: 2. 8% in the rotor torque

Explanation: Torque that can be delivered by the induction motor is proportional to the square of the operating voltage. When the supply voltage increases by 4%, it becomes 1.04 times the original value and therefore torque becomes 1.042 = 1.08 times which in other terms is 8%.
