Three-phase induction motor startup (T.E.A.M. Problem 30A)Motors and generators with MagNet
This is an example of a three-phase induction motor. In MagNet, this IM is simulated and analyzed using the Transient 2D with Motion solver. The method and results presented here displays the characteristics of the machine during startup. In this analysis, no load or friction is specified.
The following is based on the Testing Electromagnetic Analysis Methods (T.E.A.M.) problem #30A: Induction Motor Analyses. The benchmark can be found on the International Compumag Society's website.
METHODS and RESULTS
DISPLAYING the TORQUE at STARTUP
The torque/time graph shows the initial transient that takes place and the way the torque changes as the rotor speeds up. The torque then reaches the maximum before dropping to zero at synchronous speed.
