In this paper, the effect of practical operating conditions on induction motors and their performance is addressed. Mainly the effect of voltage unbalance on the efficiency will be investigated. The performance of an electromagnetic actuator depends on design or technological choices and on the volume and characteristics of the materials that are used. Therefore, this paper focuses on the influence of these design aspects on the performance of induction motors which are supplied by unbalanced voltage. Experiments reveal that differences in material choice in induction motors, e.g. Al vs. Cu rotor technology, result in interesting differences in behaviour in the presence of voltage unbalance. These results are thoroughly discussed and explained in the paper.

Abstract

In this paper, the effect of practical operating conditions on induction motors and their performance is addressed. Mainly the effect of voltage unbalance on the efficiency will be investigated. The performance of an electromagnetic actuator depends on design or technological choices and on the volume and characteristics of the materials that are used. Therefore, this paper focuses on the influence of these design aspects on the performance of induction motors which are supplied by unbalanced voltage. Experiments reveal that differences in material choice in induction motors, e.g. Al vs. Cu rotor technology, result in interesting differences in behaviour in the presence of voltage unbalance. These results are thoroughly discussed and explained in the paper.
