1. Explain why distributed windings are preferred over concentrated windings in AC
machines.

2. Explain how a rotating magnetic field is produced in an AC machine.

3. Explain briefly, from first principles, how torque is developed in an induction motor,
when the stator is supplied with balanced three-phase currents.

4. If the rotor of an induction motor is rotated at synchronous speed, how much torque
will the motor develop? Please explain.

5. Relative to an observer on the stator of an induction machine, the rotating magnetic
field due to the stator currents rotates at synchronous speed ns, whilst the machine
rotor rotates at angular speed n. At what angular speeds are the following rotating at:

(a) The rotating magnetic field due to stator currents, relative to an observer on the
rotor.
Slip speed s x n
s
(b) The rotating magnetic field due to stator currents, relative to an observer rotating
at synchronous speed.

(c) The rotating magnetic field due to currents induced in the rotor winding, relative
to the observer on the stator.
Synchronous speed n

(d) The rotating magnetic field due to currents induced in the rotor winding, relative
to an observer rotating at synchronous speed.

(e) The rotating magnetic field due to currents induced in the rotor winding, relative
to an observer on the rotor.
