In a shaded pole motor, the shading coil usually consist of a single turn of heavy copper wire which is short-circuited and carries only induced current.
Answer : In case of a shaded pole motor the direction of rotation of the motor is from main pole to shaded pole.
Answer : A shaded pole motor can be used for toys, hair dryers, circulators etc.
Answer : In a shaded pole single-phase motor, the revolving field is produced by the use of shading coils.
Description : With a neat sketch give the working of shaded pole induction motor.
Answer : Explanation: It has squirrel cage rotor and salient pole stator. The stator poles are shaded partially by short circuited conductor band to create the phase difference between the fluxes emerging from shaded ... rotating magnetic field in the air-gap and torque is exerted on the squirrel cage rotor.
