Which of the following are advantages of shaded pole Motor?
Right Answer is:
The Advantages of shaded pole Motors are
- Simplest construction, no need for capacitor or centrifugal switch.
- Long-life Less starting current and it does not cause a voltage drop across the nearest feeder.
- Easy to rewind and maintenance-free motors.
- It does not require any special starting methods.
The shaded pole induction motor has no commutator, brushes, collector rings, contactors, capacitors, or moving switch parts, so it is relatively cheaper, simpler, and extremely rugged in construction, and reliable. The absence of a centrifugal switch eliminates the possibility of motor failure due to faulty centrifugal switch mechanisms.
