What is synchronous RPM?
The synchronous speed of an AC motor is determined by the frequency of the source and the number of poles. The RPM is calculated by multiplying the frequency times 60 and dividing by the number of pairs of poles. Some motors are designed to operate at synchronous speed. …
What is an 8 pole motor?
First of all think of a DC Motor. If it is an 8-pole motor is will have 8 field coils evenly spaced all the way around it. Now, in an AC Motor with 3-phases you will have the 8-poles 3 times. That means you would have 24-groups of coils.
How does a 2 speed motor work?
The two winding motor is made in such a manner that it is really two motors wound into one stator. One winding, when energized, gives one of the speeds. When the second winding is energized, the motor takes on the speed that is determined by the second winding.
