Squirrel Cage Induction Motor

Hello friends, here we are going to upload the Squirrel Cage Induction Motor PDF to help the students. A 3 phase squirrel cage induction motor is a type of three-phase induction motor which functions based on the principle of electromagnetism. It is called a ‘squirrel cage’ motor because the rotor inside of it – known as a ‘squirrel cage rotor’ – looks like a squirrel cage.

Squirrel Cage Induction Motor PDF – Advantages

  • They are low cost
  • Require less maintenance (as there are no slip rings or brushes)
  • Good speed regulation (they are able to maintain a constant speed)
  • High efficiency in converting electrical energy to mechanical energy (while running, not during startup)
  • Have better heat regulation (i.e. don’t get as hot)
  • Small and lightweight
  • Explosion-proof (as there are no brushes that eliminate the risks of sparking)
