2. Equivalent Circuit

3. Purpose of the “Phase-Splitter” • Make the current in the Auxiliary Winding out of phase with the current in the Main Winding. • This results in the quadrature field and the main field being out of phase. • The locked-rotor torque will be given by

4. Example 6-1 • The main and auxiliary windings of a hypothetical 120 V, 60 Hz, split-phase motor have the following locked-rotor parameters: • Rmw=2.00 Ω Xmw=3.50 Ω • Raw=9.15 Ω Xaw=8.40 Ω • The motor is connected to a 120 V system. Determine

5. Example 6-1 continued • The locked-rotor current in each winding

6. Example 6-1 continued

7. Example 6-1 continued • The phase displacement angle between the main and auxiliary currents
