What are the basic parts of an Induction Motor?

An induction motor has basically two parts: Stator and Rotor.


The stator is made up of various stampings with slots to carry three phase windings. It is wound for a distinct number of poles. The windings are geometrically divided 120 degrees separated. Two sorts of rotors are used in Induction motors: Squirrel cage rotor and Wound rotor. No DC field current is required to run the machine. Rotor voltage is induced in the rotor windings rather than being physically connected by wires.


The rotor is the rotating part of the electromagnetic circuit. The most common type of rotor is the squirrel cage rotor. The rotor comprises of a cylindrical laminated core with axially placed parallel slots for carrying the conductors. Each slot carries a copper, aluminum, or alloy bar. The rotor of three-phase induction motors frequently is likewise implied as an anchor. The purpose behind this name is the anchor shape of the rotors used within quite early electrical devices. In electrical equipment the anchor’s winding would be induced by the magnetic field, although the rotor takes this part in three-phase induction motors.

Induction motor has the same physical stator as a synchronous machine with an alternate rotor development. Induction motor might be worked as either motors or generator. On the other hand, they are fundamentally used as induction motors.
