Sol. For 1-phase Induction motor: s_f=s & s_b=(2-s).
Sol. 1-𝟇 induction motor is not self-started.
The capacitor is used to introduce a phase difference of 90⁰ between auxiliary and main winding to start the motor.
Sol. In a single-phase induction motor at start, the two revolving fields produces equal and opposite torque in the rotor conductors.
Sol. The effect of shading coil is to produce a shift in the flux from the unshaded portion to the shaded portion of the pole. This shift in flux produces a weak rotating magnetic field and is sufficient to develop a small starting torque.
Sol. The capacitor-start, capacitor-run motor is similar to the capacitor-start type except that the starting winding remains in the circuit after the motor is started. Consequently, such a motor operates at a higher power factor
Sol. The direction of rotation of shaded-pole motor depends upon which half of the pole is shaded. The rotor runs from unshaded portion to the shaded portion of the pole.
Sol. In case of split-phase motor, the phase shift between currents in the two winding is around 30⁰.
