UNIT – I Polyphase Induction Motors: Constructional details of cage and wound rotor machines production of a rotating magnetic field – principle of operation – rotor EMF and rotor
frequency – rotor reactance, rotor current and Power factor at standstill and during operation.

UNIT – II Characteristics of Induction Motors: Rotor power input, rotor copper loss and mechanical power developed and their inter relation-torque equation-deduction from torque equation –
expressions for maximum torque and starting torque – torque slip characteristic – equivalent circuit – phasor diagram – crawling and cogging -.No-load Test and Blocked rotor test – Predetermination of performance-Methods of starting and starting current and Torque calculations. Speed Control Methods: Change of voltage, change of frequency, voltage/frequency, injection of an EMF into rotor circuit (qualitative treatment only)-induction generator principle of operation.

UNIT – II Construction, Principle of operation, Characteristics & Regulation of Synchronous Generator: Constructional Features of round rotor and salient pole machines – Armature windings – Integral slot and fractional slot windings; Distributed and concentrated windings –
distribution, pitch and winding factors – E.M.F Equation. Harmonics in generated e.m.f. – suppression of harmonics – armature reaction – leakage reactance – synchronous reactance and impedance – experimental determination – phasor diagram – load characteristics. Regulation by synchronous impedance method, M.M.F. method, Z.P.F. method and A.S.A. methods – salient pole alternators – two reaction analysis – experimental determination of Xd and Xq (Slip test) Phasor diagrams – Regulation of salient pole alternators.
