All -

I am taking some classes on motors (want to increase what little knowledge I have of them) and we have been asked to define the following:
Induction Start - Induction Run
Capacitor Start - Induction Run
Capacitor Start - Capacitor Run

Where can I find information and schematics of such motors? I did look at the "Schematics for Single Phase Split Phase Motors" (series 1-4). I think (there I go again) that these are the schematics I want, as I think that a:

Resistance Start Induction motor is the same as a Induction Start - Induction Run motor.

Capacitor Start Induction Motor is the same as a Capacitor Start - Induction Run motor.

Capacitor Start/Run Induction Motor is the same as a Capacitor Start - Capacitor Run motor.

Thanks
Steve


Thanks

A Google search will find you lots of general info. A visit to a tech school or college library will help also. An excellent reference book if you a so inclined would be 'Electric Motor Repair' by Rosenburg. It is still available (an old book) and can be purchased on Amazon.com both new and used.

Hi there Steve,
Just as a note, Scott35 has a whole heap of schematics for motors of all kinds in the Technical Reference Area just below this one in the Main Forum list.
There have also been a few discussions on motors at various times in this particular Area as well. [Linked Image]

You're correct. Good job translating!!! [Linked Image]
