Electrical Engineering MCQ shares multiple choice questions on Induction Motor MCQ Part 8.

## Frequency of Induced EMF in Rotor of Induction Motor

A 4 pole, 50 Hz 3-phase induction motor has slip value of 4%. The frequency of induced emf in rotor is:

- 1 Hz
- 2 Hz
- 12.5 Hz
- 100 Hz

Correct answer: 2 Hz

Solution: f’ = s*f

where f’ = rotor frequency

s = decimal slip

f = supply frequency

f’ = 0.04 * 50 = 2 Hz

## A four speed squirrel cage motor uses how many stator windings:

A four speed squirrel cage motor uses how many stator windings:

- One
- Two
- Three
- Four

Correct answer: 2. Two

Explanation: A four speed squirrel cage motor uses two stator windings. Each of these two provides two speeds.

## Induction Motor Speed Calculation Numerical

The full load slip of a 60 Hz, 3 phase, 6 pole induction motor is 4%. If rotor resistance is 0.02 per phase and standstill reactance is 0.2 per phase. What is the value of speed for which maximum torque will occur:

- 400 RPM
- 982 RPM
- 1080 RPM
- 1200 RPM

Correct answer: 3. 1080 RPM

Solution:

Step 1: Synchronous Speed = 120*f/P = 120 * 60/6 = 1200 RPM

Step 2: Slip at which maximum torque occurs = s = R2/X2 = 0.02/0.2 = 0.1

Step 3: Rotor speed at max torque = N = Ns * (1 – s) = 1200 * (1 – 0.1) = *1080 RPM*
