The characteristics of an induction motor are best determined by a series of tests, generally under load. However, for large motors, this is not always practical. The motor characteristics can be approximated by calculations using an equivalent circuit for the motor and using a series of formulas.
This course will present a review of the development of the equivalent motor circuit and the various formulas that the engineer can use to determine the induction motor characteristics to best suit the application.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
