3-phase Induction Motor:Supply given to Rotor & Stator winding shorted

  1. Feb 23, 2013 #1
    In a 3 phase slip ring Induction motor, 3 phase balanced supply is given to rotor winding & stator winding is short circuited . Then rotor would - run against the direction of rotating field.

    Can anyone explain this phenomenon?

    Are you unable to understand why a motor housing would turn if you held the shaft and used slip rings to supply power to the motor housing?
