The AC Induction Engine (ACIM), sometimes called a squirrel cage motor, is one of the most popular Ac Induction Motora china motors found in consumer and commercial applications. Induction devices are by significantly the biggest group of all industrial electrical machines, converting approximately 70-80% of all electrical energy into mechanical form. The employ a robust rotor construction, which makes them ideal for high-speed applications. With correct design, they have great overloading and field weakening features.
The ACIM is comprised of a straightforward cage-like rotor and a stator containing three windings
The changing field produced by the AC line current in the stator induces a current in the rotor which interacts with the field and causes the rotor to rotate
The rotor doesn’t have any moving contacts, which eliminates sparking
