Analysis of effects of magnetic slot wedges on characteristics of large induction motor
Magnetic slot wedges are often used to improve starting performance of large induction motors. In this paper we have investigated – through simulation – the effects of the wedges on the performance characteristics of the motor and core losses under no load condition. Both analytical and hybrid two-dimensional field-circuit models have been used. In order to reliably establish the parameters of the end connections of the rotor cage, whose values significantly influence the results of simulation, a three-dimensional model was developed, also useful for verification purposes at standstill. The simulation has demonstrated the effects of the wedges on the starting performance but revealed little influence on the core losses.

Abstract

Magnetic slot wedges are often used to improve starting performance of large induction motors. In this paper we have investigated – through simulation – the effects of the wedges on the performance characteristics of the motor and core losses under no load condition. Both analytical and hybrid two-dimensional field-circuit models have been used. In order to reliably establish the parameters of the end connections of the rotor cage, whose values significantly influence the results of simulation, a three-dimensional model was developed, also useful for verification purposes at standstill. The simulation has demonstrated the effects of the wedges on the starting performance but revealed little influence on the core losses.
