SPEED CONTROL OF INDUCTION MOTORS
10106031011113SPEED CONTROL OF INDUCTION MOTORSUntil the advent of solid-state drives, induction motors were not used in many applications requiring speed control. The normal operating range of an induction motor is within less than 5 percent slip. At larger slip, the efficiency of the motor will drop significantly because the rotor copper losses are directly proportional to the slip of the motor (P RCL = sP AG). The speed of an induction motor can be controlled by va…
