What is an Induction Motor?
An induction motor (also known as an asynchronous motor) is a commonly used AC electric motor. In an induction motor, the electric current in the rotor needed to produce torque is obtained via electromagnetic induction from the rotating magnetic field of the stator winding. The rotor of an induction motor can be a squirrel cage rotor or wound type rotor.
Types of Induction Motors
The types of induction motors can be classified depending on whether they are a single phase or three phase induction motor.
Single Phase Induction Motor
The types of single phase induction motors include:
Split Phase Induction Motor
Capacitor Start Induction Motor
Capacitor Start and Capacitor Run Induction Motor
Shaded Pole Induction Motor
Three Phase Induction Motor
The types of three phase induction motors include:
Squirrel Cage Induction Motor
Slip Ring Induction Motor
