Torque Equation of Three Phase Induction Motor
The flux φ produced by the stator is proportional to stator emf E1. i.e φ ∝ E1 We know that transformation ratio K is defined as the ratio of secondary voltage (rotor voltage) to that of primary voltage (stator voltage). Rotor current I2 is defined as the ratio of rotor induced emf under running condition , sE2 to total impedance, Z2 of rotor side, and total impedance Z2 on rotor side is given by , Putting this value in above equation we get, s= slip of Induction motor We know that power factor is defined as ratio of resistance to that of impedance. The power factor of the rotor circuit is Putting the value of flux φ, rotor current I2, power factor cosθ2 in the equation of torque we get, Combining similar term we get, Removing proportionality constant we get, Where ns is synchronous speed in r. p. s, ns = Ns / 60. So, finally the equation of torque becomes, Derivation of K in torque equation.
In case of three phase induction motor, there occur copper losses in rotor. These rotor copper losses are expressed as Pc = 3I22R2 We know that rotor current, Substitute this value of I2 in the equation of rotor copper losses, Pc. So, we get The ratio of P2 : Pc : Pm = 1 : s : (1 - s) Where, P2 is the rotor input, Pc is the rotor copper losses, Pm is the mechanical power developed. Substitute the value of Pc in above equation we get, On simplifying we get, The mechanical power developed Pm = Tω, Substituting the value of Pm We know that the rotor speed N = Ns(1 - s) Substituting this value of rotor speed in above equation we get, Ns is speed in revolution per minute (rpm) and ns is speed in revolution per sec (rps) and the relation between the two is Substitute this value of Ns in above equation and simplifying it we get Comparing both the equations, we get, constant K = 3 / 2πns
Equation of Starting Torque of Three Phase Induction MotorStarting torque is the torque produced by induction motor when it is started. We know that at start the rotor speed, N is zero. So, the equation of starting torque is easily obtained by simply putting the value of s = 1 in the equation of torque of the three phase induction motor, The starting torque is also known as standstill torque.
Maximum Torque Condition for Three Phase Induction MotorIn the equation of torque, The rotor resistance, rotor inductive reactance and synchronous speed of induction motor remains constant . The supply voltage to the three phase induction motor is usually rated and remains constant so the stator emf also remains the constant. The transformation ratio is defined as the ratio of rotor emf to that of stator emf. So if stator emf remains constant then rotor emf also remains constant.
If we want to find the maximum value of some quantity then we have to differentiate that quantity with respect to some variable parameter and then put it equal to zero. In this case we have to find the condition for maximum torque so we have to differentiate torque with respect to some variable quantity which is slip, s in this case as all other parameters in the equation of torque remains constant. So, for torque to be maximum Now differentiate the above equation by using division rule of differentiation. On differentiating and after putting the terms equal to zero we get, Neglecting the negative value of slip we get So, when slip s = R2 / X2, the torque will be maximum and this slip is called maximum slip Sm and it is defined as the ratio of rotor resistance to that of rotor reactance. NOTE: At starting S = 1, so the maximum starting torque occur when rotor resistance is equal to rotor reactance.
Equation of Maximum TorqueThe equation of torque is The torque will be maximum when slip s = R2 / X2 Substituting the value of this slip in above equation we get the maximum value of torque as, In order to increase the starting torque, extra resistance should be added to the rotor circuit at start and cut out gradually as motor speeds up.
Conclusion From the above equation it is concluded that
- The maximum torque is directly proportional to square of rotor induced emf at the standstill.
- The maximum torque is inversely proportional to rotor reactance.
- The maximum torque is independent of rotor resistance.
- The slip at which maximum torque occur depends upon rotor resistance, R2. So, by varying the rotor resistance, maximum torque can be obtained at any required slip.
