Introduction Induction motor is an AC machine in which an alternating current is supplied to the stator armature windings directly and to the rotor windings by induction. Because it operates at balanced conditions, only a single phase is necessary. So, the per-phase equivalent circuit of the induction motor in which the rotor parameters are referred to the stator side is shown in Figure 1. It can be seen from Figure 1 that the core loss represented by RC is neglected since its effect is lumped with the rotational losses. The following equations can be derived: V1 = E1 + (R1 + jX 1 )I 1 ................................................... (1) ⎛R ⎞ E1 = ⎜ 2 + jX 2 ⎟ I 2 ...................................................... (2) ⎝ s ⎠ To determine the parameters of the equivalent circuit of the three-phase induction motor, it is subjected to three tests. 32 j X1 R1 I1 j X2 I2 + + j Xm V1 R2 / s E1 _ _ Figure 1: Per-phase equivalent circuit of a three-phase induction motor referred to the stator Proceedure A. DC Test Connect the circuit as shown in Figure 2 (while the motor is at standstill), apply the dc voltage Vdc until the current Idc flowing in the induction motor is the rated value. The stator resistance per phase can be calculated as R1 = Vdc / (2 Idc).. I dc A V Vdc A R1 R1 B R1 C Figure 2: DC test for the determination of the stator resistance B. No Load Test Rated balanced voltage at rated frequency is applied to the stator, and the motor is allowed to run on no-load. When the machine runs on no-load, the slip is close to zero, and the circuit to the right of the shunt branch in Figure l is taken to be an open circuit. Thus the equivalent circuit to the no-load test conditions is given in Figure 3. Because of the relatively low value of rotor frequency, the rotor core loss is practically negligible at no-load. From Figure 3, it follows that Protational = Pnl − 3I nl2 R1 ................................................... (3) P Rnl = nl2 = R1 + lumped losses ....................................

Blocked-Rotor Test In this test, the rotor of the induction motor is blocked so that the slip is equal to unity, and a reduced voltage value is applied to the machine stator terminals so that the rated current flows through the stator windings. The iron losses are assumed to be negligible in this test. Also, the shunt branch is neglected for this test since the excitation current is small. The equivalent circuit corresponding to the blocked rotor test condition is given in Figure 5. From Figure 5, it then follows that Rbl = Pbl = R1 + R2 .................................................... (8) 3 I bl2 34 Z bl = Vbl 3 I bl = Rbl2 + X bl2 ............................................ (9) X bl = Z bl2 − Rbl2 = X 1 + X 2 ..........................................
