This is known as crawling of induction motor. This action is due to,the fact that the AC winding of the stator produces a flux wave which is not. It can also be reduced by using the skewed rotor. Cogging and Crawling are less eminent in wound rotor motors because of the higher starting. Induction motors will not accelerate to full speed if they cog or crawl. Cogging motors do not accelerate at all, and crawling induction motors stop accelerating.

Group Drives Photo Credit – http: Crawling of Induction Motor It has been observed that squirrel cage type induction motor has a tendency to run at very low speed compared to its synchronous speed, this phenomenon is known as crawling. Hence total motor torque has there components.

If the mechanical load on the shaft involves constant load torque, the torque developed by the motor may fall below this load torque. These characteristics are the crxwling of improper functioning of the motor that means either motor is running at very slow speed or it is not taking the load.

Crawling and Cogging of Induction Motor

Newer Post Older Post Home. Hence, harmonic torques are also developed in addition with fundamental torque.

I really have no idea what you are asking and the link you are referring to doesn’t really help. Connects Facebook Youtube Videos. This phenomenon is called cogging or magnetic locking of induction motor.

This is known as crawling of induction motor. What is meant is to arrange the stack of rotor laminations so that the rotor slots are “skewed” or angled with respect to the axis of rotation. Instead, it is a complex wave consisting a fundamental wave and odd harmonics like 3rd, 5th, 7th etc.


When the slots of the rotor are equal in number with slots in the stator, they align themselves in such way that both face to each other and at this stage the reluctance of the magnetic path is minimum and motor refuse to start. Manoj are you sure you are not trying to increase traffic to your blog!

The total motor torque now consist three components as: Cogging of Induction Motor This characteristic of induction motor comes into picture when motor refuses to start at all. This action is due to the fact that, flux wave produced by a stator winding is or purely sine wave. This torque produced by fifth harmonic which works as a braking action is small in quantity, so it can be neglected. How to minimize this effects?

Skewing of the rotor slots, that means the stack of the rotor is arranged in such a way that it angled with the axis of the rotation. If the motor is well designed, it should not experience crawling with any reasonably acceptable commercial power waveform or PWM VFD waveform. Now the question arises why this happens? Welcome to Electrical Cawling Guides! Sometimes the induction motor starts to run at one seventh speed of ad speedit is called as crawling in the induction motor.

P Please frame your question properly, include as much information as possible! Would you please elaborate it in more adn. Thank you Charles Cowie.

I have mentioned one or two in my blog post. Home Electrical machines Power system Contact electricaleasy. This phenomenon is called as crawling in induction motors. At this stage motor does not reach up to its normal speed and continue to rotate at a speed which is much lower than its normal speed.


What is Cogging in Induction Motor? – Magnetic Locking – Circuit Globe

Crawling Sometime the squirrel cage induction motor refuses to start particular at low voltage, it is known as crawling effect. Construction and Working of Induction Motor. However the stator flux is not pure sinusoidal, invuction consists of fundamental and harmonics.

Under this minimum reluctance path condition, magnetic locking takes place between the stator and the rotor teeth. Hence, the net forward torque is equal to the sum of the torque produced by 7 th harmonic and fundamental torque.

This condition is known as Cogging or Magnetic locking. In your link, that statement is under the heading “Cogging. Here we consider only 5 th and 7 th harmonics and rest are neglected. This characteristic of the induction motor is called cogging.

But generally, three constants R, L and C are considered and the A transmission line has four constants R, L, C and shunt conductance. Constructing the rotor with skewed slots and providing more or fewer rotor slots than stator slots is the remedy for both cogging and crawling.

If we neglect all higher order harmonic, total cofging is sum of fundamental torque and seven harmonic torque. Note that the acoustical noise related to this phenomena can also be problematic.

Hence 3rdd harmonics do not produce rotating field and torque. Circuit Globe All about Electrical and Electronics. Cogging and Crawling are less eminent in wound rotor motors because of the anv starting torques.

In addition, it is helpful to select a skew angle for the rotor slots.
