Abstract

The paper develops a method to choose the number of rotor bars in order to eliminate rotor slot harmonics in stator current spectrum and pulsation torques that are their consequence. Mains-fed, three-phase cage induction motors with the most common number of pole pairs and number of stator slots, that result in integer slot winding, are analyzed. The analysis is based on the recently derived general rule for optimal selection of rotor bars, valid for symmetrical multiphase machine with prime number of phases and integer slot stator winding. As a tool for validation of analytically predicted results, parameterized winding function (PWF) model is used. Electromagnetic torque ripple factor is used as a measure of goodness of the number of rotor bar selection. The practical motivation of the study is an attempt to supersede the many existing rules for rotor bar number selection that, depending on the source, may be different, and provide a unified general approach to the problem. One of the main findings derived in the paper is ascertainment that increasing the number of pole pairs increases the degree of freedom in choosing the proper number of rotor bars. The same applies when the number of motor phases increases.
