## How do you find the pole of a motor?

The actual running speed is the synchronous speed minus the slip speed. To determine the number of poles, you can read the data plate directly or calculate it from the RPM stated on the data plate or you can count the coils **and divide by 3 (poles per phase)** or by 6 (pairs of poles per phase).

## What is motor pole number?

The pole count **of a motor is the number of permanent magnetic poles, north and south, on the rotor**. There is always the same number of north and south poles on the rotor. For example, in a 12 pole motor, there are 6 north poles and 6 south poles. This motor would also be considered a 6 pole-pair motor.

## Which is better 2 pole or 4 pole motor?

A **2 pole motor** has high speed due to less number of poles. Conversely, a 4 pole motor has low speed due to more number of poles. A 2 pole motor is more efficient on the flip side, a 4 poles motor is less efficient. A 2 pole motor has more RPM value; on the other side, the 4 poles motor has fewer revolutions per minute.

## How many coils does a 6 pole motor have?

To create a six pole motor use **six coils per phase** that creates three north poles and three south poles and so on. The number of stator slots is always a multiple of six. When it comes to the pole number it’s always a multiple of two because the north and the South Pole always come in pairs.

## What is 120 in motor speed formula?

The equation for calculating synchronous speed is: **S = 120 f/P speed = constant (120) times frequency of power source (60 Hz) divided by number of poles used in the motor (P)**.

## What is RPM motor?

What Is the RPM of a Motor? RPM is a measurement used to describe a motor’s speed. It **stands for revolutions per minute** and describes the rate at which the rotor is revolving, which is the number of times the rotor shaft completes a full rotation each minute.

## What do you mean by shaded pole motor?

A Shaded Pole motor is **an AC single phase induction motor**. The auxiliary winding, which is composed of a copper ring, is called a shading coil. The current in this coil delay the phase of magnetic flux in that part of the pole in order to provide a rotating magnetic field.

## Is shaded pole motor self-starting?

Shaded pole motor is a **self-starting motor** because it is a small squirrel-cage motor in which the auxiliary winding is composed of a copper ring or bar surrounding a portion of each pole. This auxiliary single-turn winding is called a shading coil.
