Single-Phase sprockets induction Motors
The single-phase electric motor operates under the same principle as the polyphase engine, except that the rotating magnetic field effect produced by the stator will not exist until running rpm is reached. Since no starting torque is offered, a design system is included to start the motor. They are the various designations:

Torque-Speed Curves of Different Single-Phase Induction Motors

Shaded-pole: Have only 1 main winding and no begin winding. This configuration causes a shift of the used magnetic field in romantic relationship to the rotor, creating stating torque. Applications include supporters and small appliances.

Split-Phase (induction start motor)
Has two sets of stator windings. The “start” windings are positioned 90 degrees to the “run” windings and shift the magnetic field of the stator, inducing beginning torque. Applications include small grinders, small enthusiasts, and blowers.

Capacitor-Start
The most typical single-phase motor used in industrial applications. It really is a modified split-phase electric motor with a capacitor in series with the start winding to supply a start boost. Application include small conveyors, large blowers, pumps, and direct-drives.

Permanent-Split-Capacitor (PSC)
Uses identical primary and auxiliary windings with a capacitor to supply starting torque. They are the most reliable single-phase engine because no centrifugal beginning switch is necessary. Applications include enthusiasts and pumps in HVAC and refrigeration industries.
