Solved Example

The below step by step solved example problem may helpful for users to understand how the input values are being used in such calculations.
Example Problem
Find the synchronous speed (Ns) of an induction motor whose line frequency f = 140 Hz & number of poles p = 12?
Solution
The given data
f = 140 Hz
p = 12

Step by step calculation
Formula to find Ns = 120f/p
substitute the values in the formula
= (120 x 140)/12
