Abstract

The electromagnetic theory of induction motors has been developed taking into account both the space and time harmonic spectrums. Three different approaches of analyses have been presented: a rigorous approach that deals directly with the system of partial differential equations of the field problem, a simplified approach that uses the transmission-line concept for solving the field problem, and a third approach that lies between the simplicity of the transmission-line approach and the comprehensive use of the boundary conditions of the rigorous approach. All of the analyses have been presented in their most general forms. This permits the solution of any general field problem of any machine configuration;It is concluded that some design parameters have a significant effect on the machine performance, and can be used to get an optimal machine design.
