  1. 1. 1.4 Single-Phase MotorsSingle phase motors are the most familiar of all electric motors because they are usedin home appliances and portable machine tools. In general, they are employed when a3 phase power is not available.1.4.1 Single Phase Induction MotorThere are probably more single-phase AC induction motors in use today than the totalof all the other types put together. It is logical that the least expensive, lowestmaintenance type motor should be used most often. The single-phase AC inductionmotor best fits this description.As the name suggests, this type of motor has only one stator winding (main winding)and operates with a single-phase power supply. In all single-phase induction motors,the rotor is the squirrel cage type.1.4.2 Analysis of Single-Phase Induction MotorThe single-phase induction motor is not self-starting. When the motor is connected toa single-phase power supply, the main winding carries an alternating current. Thiscurrent produces a pulsating magnetic field. Due to induction, the rotor is energized.As the main magnetic field is pulsating, the torque necessary for the motor rotation isnot generated. This will cause the rotor to vibrate, but not to rotate. Hence, the singlephase induction motor is required to have a starting mechanism that can provide thestarting kick for the motor to rotate.The starting mechanism of the single-phase induction motor is mainly an additionalstator winding (start/auxiliary winding) as shown in Figure 1. The start winding can 1
  2. 2. AC Machineshave a series capacitor and/or a centrifugal switch. When the supply voltage isapplied, current in the main winding lags the supply voltage due to the main windingimpedance. At the same time, current in the start winding leads/lags the supplyvoltage depending on the starting mechanism impedance. Interaction betweenmagnetic fields generated by the main winding and the starting mechanism generatesa resultant magnetic field rotating in one direction. The motor starts rotating in thedirection of the resultant magnetic field.Once the motor reaches about 75% of its rated speed, a centrifugal switch disconnectsthe start winding. From this point on, the single-phase motor can maintain sufficienttorque to operate on its own. Except for special capacitor start/capacitor run types, allsingle-phase motors are generally used for applications up to 3/4 hp only. (a) (b) Figure 1 Single phase AC induction motor (a) Without start mechanism (b) With start mechanism1.4.3 Types of Single-Phase Induction MotorsDepending on the various start techniques, single phase AC induction motors arefurther classified as described in the following sections. The torque speed curve ofdifferent types of single phase induction motors is as illustrate by Figure 2 below. 2
  3. 3. Figure 2 Torque-speed curve of single phase induction motors1.4.3.1 Split-Phase AC Induction MotorThe split-phase motor is also known as an induction start/induction run motor. It hastwo windings: a start and a main winding. The start winding is made with smallergauge wire and fewer turns, relative to the main winding to create more resistance,thus putting the start winding’s field at a different angle than that of the main windingwhich causes the motor to start rotating. The main winding, which is of a heavierwire, keeps the motor running the rest of the time.The starting torque is low, typically 100% to 175% of the rated torque. The motordraws high starting current, approximately 700% to 1,000% of the rated current. Themaximum generated torque ranges from 250% to 350% of the rated torque (see Figure2 for torque-speed curve).Good applications for split-phase motors include small grinders, small fans andblowers and other low starting torque applications with power needs from 1/20 to 1/3hp. Avoid using this type of motor in any applications requiring high on/off cyclerates or high torque. 3
  4. 4. AC Machines Figure 3 Typical Split-Phase AC Induction Motor1.4.3.2 Capacitor Start AC Induction MotorThis is a modified split-phase motor with a capacitor in series with the start windingto provide a start “boost.” Like the split-phase motor, the capacitor start motor alsohas a centrifugal switch which disconnects the start winding and the capacitor whenthe motor reaches about 75% of the rated speed. Since the capacitor is in series withthe start circuit, it creates more starting torque, typically 200% to 400% of the ratedtorque. In addition, the starting current, usually 450% to 575% of the rated current, ismuch lower than the split-phase due to the larger wire in the start circuit. Refer toFigure 2 for torque-speed curve of capacitor start AC induction motor.A modified version of the capacitor start motor is the resistance start motor. In thismotor type, the starting capacitor is replaced by a resistor. The resistance start motoris used in applications where the starting torque requirement is less than that providedby the capacitor start motor. Apart from the cost, this motor does not offer any majoradvantage over the capacitor start motor.They are used in a wide range of belt-drive applications like small conveyors, largeblowers and pumps, as well as many direct-drive or geared applications. 4
  5. 5. Figure 4 Typical Capacitor Start AC Induction Motor1.4.3.3 Permanent Split Capacitor (Capacitor Run) AC Induction MotorA permanent split capacitor (PSC) motor has a run type capacitor permanentlyconnected in series with the start winding. This makes the start winding an auxiliarywinding once the motor reaches the running speed. Since the run capacitor must bedesigned for continuous use, it cannot provide the starting boost of a startingcapacitor. The typical starting torque of the permanent split capacitor motor is low,from 30% to 150% of the rated torque. Permanent split capacitor motors have lowstarting current, usually less than 200% of the rated current, making them excellentfor applications with high on/off cycle rates. Refer to Figure 2 for torque-speed curveof permanent split capacitor.The permanent split capacitor motors have several advantages. The motor design caneasily be altered for use with speed controllers. They can also be designed foroptimum efficiency and high power factor at the rated load. They’re considered to bethe most reliable of the single-phase motors, mainly because no centrifugal startingswitch is required.Permanent split capacitor motors have a wide variety of applications depending on thedesign. These include fans, blowers with low starting torque needs and intermittentcycling uses, such as adjusting mechanisms, gate operators and garage door openers. 5
  6. 6. AC Machines Figure 5 Typical Permanent Split Capacitor AC Induction Motor1.4.3.4 Capacitor Start/Capacitor Run AC Induction MotorThis motor has a start type capacitor in series with the auxiliary winding like thecapacitor start motor for high starting torque. Like a permanent split capacitor motor,it also has a run type capacitor that is in series with the auxiliary winding after thestart capacitor is switched out of the circuit. This allows high overload torque.This type of motor can be designed for lower full-load currents and higher efficiency(see Figure 2 for torque-speed curve). This motor is costly due to start and runcapacitors and centrifugal switch.It is able to handle applications too demanding for any other kind of single-phasemotor. These include woodworking machinery, air compressors, high-pressure waterpumps, vacuum pumps and other high torque applications requiring 1 to 10 hp. Figure 6 Typical Capacitor Start/Capacitor Run AC Induction Motor 6
  7. 7. 1.4.3.5 Shaded-Pole AC Induction MotorShaded-pole motors have only one main winding and no start winding. Starting is bymeans of a design that rings a continuous copper loop around a small portion of eachof the motor poles. This “shades” that portion of the pole, causing the magnetic fieldin the shaded area to lag behind the field in the unshaded area. The reaction of the twofields gets the shaft rotating.Because the shaded-pole motor lacks a start winding, starting switch or capacitor, it iselectrically simple and inexpensive. In addition, the speed can be controlled merely byvarying voltage, or through a multi-tap winding. Mechanically, the shaded-pole motorconstruction allows high-volume production. In fact, these are usually considered as“disposable” motors, meaning they are much cheaper to replace than to repair.The shaded-pole motor has many positive features but it also has severaldisadvantages. Its low starting torque is typically 25% to 75% of the rated torque. It isa high slip motor with a running speed 7% to 10% below the synchronous speed.Generally, efficiency of this motor type is very low (below 20%).The low initial cost suits the shaded-pole motors to low horsepower or light dutyapplications. Perhaps their largest use is in multi-speed fans for household use. Butthe low torque, low efficiency and less sturdy mechanical features make shaded-polemotors impractical for most industrial or commercial use, where higher cycle rates orcontinuous duty are the norm.
