"Standard Motor"? List down some ill-suited applications for `Energy Efficient Motors'.
14. Why `Induction Motors' are so popular over all types of motors? How do you define
percentage unbalance in voltage?
15. Why is it beneficial to operate motors in star mode for under loaded motors? What is the
thumb rule for installing capacitors to motor terminal?
16. A 4-pole 415 V 3-phase, 50 Hz induction motor runs at 1440 RPM at .88 pf lagging and
10.817 kW. The stator loss is 1060 W, and friction & windage losses are 375 W. Calculate
A. Slip, B. Rotor Copper loss, C. Line current and D. Efficiency
17. What are the effects of harmonics on motor operation and performance? Calculate the
annual energy-savings and simple payback from replacing an existing standard motor with
a premium efficiency Motor versus repairing a standard efficiency motor with a sample
18. Discuss direct measurement method and loss segregation method to determine the
efficiency of energy efficient methods.
