Transformers – Saturation

Transformer saturation distorts the secondary current waveform and the extent of distortion depends on the value of the remaining flux in the CT core and the presence of a DC offset in the primary current. It is common, in transmission lines, to occur situations that generate overcurrent in the circuit. These situations usually lead to […]

Single Phase Induction Motors

The single-phase induction electric motor has a squirrel cage winding rotor and a distributed winding stator and the winding current located in the rotor is current induced, according to Faraday’s induction law. Because it has no starting torque when the stator winding is supplied, the rotor will not rotate. However, if an initial rotation is […]
