Abstract

A thorough understanding of the dynamic starting behaviour of induction motors could help the users to ensure good compatibility between the motor drives and the loads being driven. This paper presents the work developed with the aid of a Pentium PC in studying the starting behaviour of induction motors. It is shown in the paper that the test data captured in the laboratory have good agreement with the simulation results. Very good correlations are also obtained when the simulations are compared with published data. The running time for each simulation is of the order of tens of seconds only, thus this simulation software should be very useful for both designers and users of induction motors alike.
