This paper addresses the causes of synchronous torques in split-phase induction motors. First, an analytical model is outlined to describe the processes involved in producing synchronous torques. This involves the consideration of the motor MMFs interacting with the slot permeances. The results from the implementation of the model are given for several different motor designs to calculate the synchronous torques. These highlight the way that the synchronous torque is a function of the MMF and slotting relationships. Measurement of the synchronous torque is not straightforward; however, a method of assessment is developed in this paper by using a deceleration test and other tests. The test results are fully described in this paper, and they illustrate that even with correct bar/slot combinations and skew, synchronous torques still exist in the machine. © 2010 IEEE.
