Understanding the Essentials of a Three Phase Motor

A Three Phase Motor, also known as an induction motor or a 3 stage induction motor, is a type of AC electric motor. The electric energy needed in the rotor to produce torque is obtained through electromagnetic induction from the magnetic field of the stator winding. This motor is often connected with a three-phase supply, hence its name, and is commonly used in appliances like fans, blowers, cranes, and tractions.

Advantages of a Three Phase Motor

Three Phase Motors are preferred over DC motors for several reasons. The primary drawback of DC motors is the need for a commutator and brushes which require regular maintenance. These motors also cannot be used in explosive or dirty environments. However, Three Phase Motors are more cost-effective, durable, lighter, smaller, and require less maintenance. They are also safe to use in dirty and explosive conditions.

Types of Induction Motors

There are two main types of Induction Motors:

  • Squirrel cage Induction Motor
  • Slip ring Induction Motor

Starting and Braking Conditions

These motors have different starting and braking conditions. The important starting methods are:

  • Star-delta starter
  • Auto transformer starter
  • AC voltage controller starter
  • Rotor resistance starter

The important braking methods include:

  • Regenerative braking
  • Plugging or reverse voltage braking
  • Dynamic braking

Acceleration Control Techniques

Acceleration control technique of an induction motor is crucial. Some of the techniques include:

  • Pole changing
  • Stator voltage control
  • V/f control
  • Slip power recovery
  • Rotor resistance control
