When the slip rings are shorted, the induced current in rotor oppose the relative motion between rotor conductor & stator field according to the Lenz's law. So, the rotor also starts rotating in the same direction as that of stator field. As the rotor rotates in clockwise direction, the direction of stator field is also in clockwise direction.
When the slip rings are opened, then rotor is rotate in the Anticlockwise direction.Explanation:
Rotor is made to rotate with speed
(in ACW direction) when slip ring are opened.
Relative motion between rotor & stator field
= Ns + Nr
Therefore frequency of induced EMF in rotor winding
f1=p120×(Ns+Nr) f1=NsP120+NrP120 f1 = f + fr
At the same time, the frequency of voltage across commutator brushes is same as stator frequency.
⇒ f2 = f

Slip Ring Induction Motor
This Article Encompasses the Working Principle of Slip Ring Induction Motor, Construction, Speed Control, Resistance Calculation and Its Applications
An induction motor is an electrical device that converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. It is most widely used for industrial applications due to its self-starting attribute. Slip ring induction motor is one of the types of 3-phase induction motor and is a wound rotor motor type. Because of various advantages like low initial current, high starting torque, and improved power factor, it is used in applications that require high torque, cranes, and elevators. The rotor windings consist of more number of windings, higher induced voltage, and less current compared to the squirrel-cage rotor. The windings are connected to external resistance through slip rings, which helps to control the torque/speed of a motor.
What is a Slip Ring Induction Motor?Definition: A slip ring induction motor is referred to as an asynchronous motor as the speed at which it operates is not equal to the synchronous speed of a rotor. The rotor of this type of motor is wound type. It comprises of a cylindrical laminated steel core and a semi-closed groove at the outer boundary to accommodate a 3-phase insulated winding circuit.
Slip Ring in Induction Motor
As seen in the figure above, the rotor is wound to match the number of poles on the stator. The three terminals of a rotor and three start terminals connecting through slip rings are connected to a shaft. The aim of the shaft is to transmit mechanical power.
Before we discuss the working principle of slip ring Induction motor, knowing the slip ring induction motor construction is important. So let’s begin with the construction which includes two parts: Stator and Rotor.
The stator of this motor comprises of various slots that are arranged to support the construction of a 3-phase winding circuit connecting to a 3-phase AC source.
The rotor of this motor consists of a cylindrical core with steel laminations. Besides this, the rotor has parallel slots to accommodate 3-phase windings. The windings in these slots are arranged at 120 degrees to each other. This arrangement can reduce noise and avoid irregular pausing of a motor.
Working of Slip Ring Induction Motor
This motor runs on the principle of Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. When a stator winding is excited with an AC supply, the stator winding produces magnetic flux. Based on faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction, the rotor winding gets induced and generates a current of magnetic flux. This induced EMF develops torque that enables the rotor to rotate.
However, the phase difference between the voltage and current do not meet the requirements to generate high starting torque as torque developed is not unidirectional. The external resistance of high value is connected with the circuit to improve the phase difference of a motor. As a result, inductive reactance and phase difference between I and V is reduced. Consequently, this reduction helps the motor to generate high stating torque. The slip ring induction motor diagram is shown below.
Slip Ring Induction Motor Connection Diagram
Why Slip Rings are used in an Induction Motor?
Slip is defined as the difference between the flux speed and the rotor speed. For an induction motor to produce torque, at least some difference should be there between stator field speed and rotor speed. This difference is called ‘slip’. The Slip Ring” is an electromechanical device that aids in transmitting power and electrical signals from stationary to a rotating component.
Slip rings are also known as rotary electrical interfaces, electric rotary joints, swivels, or collector rings. Sometimes, based on the application, the slip ring requires higher bandwidth to transmit data. Slip rings improve the efficiency and performance of a motor by improving system operation and eliminating wires that are dangling from motor joints.
Slip Ring Induction Motor Resistance Calculation
The peak torque occurs ifr = Smax. X —— (I)
Where, Smax = Slip at pull-out torque
X = Inductance of a rotor
r = resistance of rotor winding
Adding external resistance R to equation (I),r+R= (Smax)’. X —— (ii)
From equation (i) and (ii),R = r(S’ max/Smax – 1) —— (iii)
By definition of Smax, we get Smax = 1 – (Nmax/Ns) —— (iv)
Putting S’max =1 in equation (iii), we getR = r. (1/Smax-1) —— (v)
Let’s say, Ns = synchronous speed of 1000rpm and pull-out torque happens at 900 rpm, equation (iv) reduces to Smax = 0.1 (i.e., 10% slip)
Substitute in equation (v),R = r. (1/0.1 – 1)R = 9. r
‘r’ is measured using a multimeter. The resistance value of 9 times higher than of a slip ring rotor resistance is connected externally to experience maximum starting torque.
