Single Phase Induction Motor MCQs Part 1

## The rotor used in single phase induction motor is

The rotor used in single phase induction motor is:

1. Squirrel cage
2. Wound rotor
3. Any of above
4. None of these

## The resistance split-phase induction motors are most popular type of single-phase inductions motors because of their

The resistance split-phase induction motors are most popular type of single-phase inductions motors because of their:

1. Low cost
2. Long starting period
3. High starting torque
4. None of these

1. 5 to 10%
2. 30 to 35%
3. 50 to 80%
4. 80 to 90%

Correct answer: 2. 30 to 35%

## At starting, the winding of 220 V, 50 HZ, split phase induction motor have following parameters

At starting, the winding of 220 V, 50 HZ, split phase induction motor have following parameters:

Main winding: R = 5 Ω; XL = 8 Ω

Starting winding: R = 8 Ω; XL = 5 Ω

The line current is:

1. 26
2. 44.82
3. 54.82
4. 89.64

Solution:

Phase angle between V and Im (Φm) = tan^-1 8/5 = 57.99°

——————-

Phase angle between V and Is (Φs) = tan^-1 5/8 = 26°

——————-

Phase angle between Is and Im (α) = Φm – Φs = 57.99° – 32.01° = 26°

——————-

Line current (I) = √(Im² + Is² + 2Im*Is*cos α) = 44.82 A
