THE shaded-pole motor is quite simple to construct; but for all but the smallest sizes, losses are large; and if distributed windings are used, its construction becomes more complicated. A single-phase induction motor may be given starting torque by varying the rotor constants over the pole face, either by asymmetrical iron structure or winding. Starting… CONTINUE READING
