3-phase Induction Motor Construction Presentation

Introduction to 3-Phase Induction Motor Construction
• The 3-phase induction motor is the most widely used type of electric motor.
• It consists of a stator and a rotor, which interact to produce rotating motion.
• The stator is the stationary part, while the rotor is the rotating part of the motor.

Stator Construction
• The stator is made up of a laminated iron core, which provides a low-reluctance path for the magnetic flux.
• It contains three sets of windings, spaced 120 degrees apart, to create a rotating magnetic field.
• The windings are usually made of copper and are insulated to prevent short circuits.

Rotor Construction
• The rotor can be either squirrel cage or wound rotor type.
• In squirrel cage rotor, it consists of laminated iron cores with conducting bars embedded in them.
• In wound rotor type, it has three sets of windings connected to slip rings, allowing external resistance to be added.

Stator Winding Arrangement
• The three-phase windings are usually connected in a star or delta configuration.
• In a star connection, the windings are connected to a common point, forming a neutral point.
• In a delta connection, the windings are connected in a closed loop without a neutral point.

Rotor Bars and End Rings
• The rotor bars in a squirrel cage rotor are short-circuited at both ends by conducting end rings.
• The rotor bars and end rings are usually made of aluminum or copper for good conductivity.
• The number of rotor bars determines the starting torque and efficiency of the motor.

Motor Enclosure and Cooling
• The motor is enclosed in a protective housing, which provides mechanical support and prevents the entry of dust and moisture.
• Cooling is important for efficient motor operation, and it can be achieved through various methods like air circulation or liquid cooling.
• The cooling system ensures that the motor operates at a safe temperature, preventing overheating and damage. Note: This is a brief overview of 3-phase induction motor construction, and more detailed information can be found in technical literature or textbooks on electric motors.
