Rewinding of the Single Phase Induction Motor
The efficiency of an single phase induction motor can reduce due to the age of the motor. Therefore, the old induction motor have a less efficiency compare to the new ones. Some methods can be apply to increase the efficiency of the old induction motor. In this research, one of the methods is applied in the small single-phase induction motor. This efficiency can be improve with reducing the losses of the induction motor. The low-power single-phase induction motors are repaired by manually rewinding. The results showed that the efficiency of low power single phase induction motors that was repaired with manually rewinding is increasing with average + 16.93% and ranges between +2.42% to +20.11%.
