Increasing the speed of an ac motor

  1. Jun 3, 2005 #1
    Hey. I was doing a question and it asked what would be the graph of an AC motor if the speed was doubled. (the previous period was 10 ms).

    I think that the frequency would be doubled but would anything happen to the amplitude?

    What do you mean by the "graph of an AC motor"? Do you mean the electrical power plotted as a function of speed? voltage vs speed? frequency vs. speed? speed vs frequency? etc...
