Speed Control of Induction Motor – AC Motor Speed Control Methods

Speed Control of Induction Motor – AC Motor Speed Control Methods

An induction motor is basically a constant speed motor, that means, for the entire loading range, change in speed of the motor is quite small. Speed of a DC shunt motor can be varied very easily with good efficiency, but in case of Induction motors, speed reduction is accompanied by a corresponding loss of efficiency …

Motor and Pump – Difference between Pump and Motor – Motor vs Pump

Motor and Pump – Difference between Pump and Motor – Motor vs Pump

The main difference between motor and pump is that a motor is a device that converts electricity to mechanical energy which results in motion, whereas a pump is a device that is used to transfer a fluid from one place to another. Both of these devices are very important in fields such as electrical engineering, …

Compressor – Types of Compressor – Compressor Types

A compressor is a mechanical device that increases the pressure of a gas or air by reducing itsvolume.Compressors are similar to pumps: both increase the pressure on a fluid and both can transportthe fluid through a pipe.As air or gases are compressible, the compressor also reduces the volume of an air or gas.In this video …
