COGGING & MAGNETIC LOCK
SQUIRREL CAGE motor sometime s could not be start, the rotor of squirrel cage motor refuse to start at all, particularly when the voltage is low. This happen due to Magnetic Locking between stator and rotor teeth, when number of stator teeth is equal to number of rotor teeth.
For that Kind of reason sometimes this phenomenon is call TEETH LOCKING.
It is found that the reluctance of the magnetic path is minimum when the stator and rotor teeth face to face each other rather than when teeth of one element (rotor or stator) are opposite to the slots on the other. It is in such position of minimum reluctance, that the rotor tends to remain fixed and for that cause serious trouble during starting.
How to overcome from COGGING:
Cogging of squirrel cage motors can easily overcome by making the number of rotor slot prime to the number of stator slots.
WHAT IS AUTO TRANSFORMER?
It is an Transformer with one winding only, part of this being common to both primary and secondary.

Testing of Circuit Breaker is not so easy as other equipment such as Transformer, Motor, Generator etc. As short circuit current is very large for Circuit Breaker testing of these is difficult. Also there is no satisfactory methods to do it at reduce power. Continue reading “Circuit Breaker Testing”
Automatic Combustion control is now general use for large steam power plants. It regulates automatically changes in demand of steam and also affects quick and stable changes in other variables so as to maintain constant steam pressure and proper combustion conditions.

WHAT IS HUNTING?
When a Synchronous motor is connected to a varying load that mean load is not fixed, a condition known as HUNTING. it’s produced which may also occur if the supply frequency is pulsating. Continue reading “Hunting Synchronous Motor”
