## A 3-phase induction motor having synchronous speed of 1000 RPM develops 10 mechanical HP at an RPM of 950. If stator loss is 500 W then, What is stator input

A 3-phase induction motor having synchronous speed of 1000 RPM develops 10 mechanical HP at an RPM of 950. If stator loss is 500 W then, What is stator input:

1. 4.5 kW
2. 8.35 kW
3. 12.75 kW
4. 15.25 kW

Solution:

Stator loss in kW = 500 W = 0.5 kW

Slip (s) = (Ns – N)/Ns = (1000 – 950)/1000 = 0.05

Rotor input = (Mechanical HP * 0.746)/(1-s) = 7.85 kW

Stator input = Rotor input + Stator loss = 7.85 kW + 0.5 kW = 8.35 kW

Correct answer: 1. s * rotor input
