Induction Motor:No of rotor poles not equal to no of stator poles

  1. Feb 24, 2013 #1
    Consider 2 cases

    case 1: no of rotor poles = 2
    no of stator poles =4

    case 2: no of rotor poles = 4
    no of stator poles =2

    What will happen in case 1 & 2 ? Will Induction motor run?

    It's OK so long as there are poles to match up.

    ... in this example there are fewer poles in the rotor than in the stator.
