This is the first article (video) in a series of articles on The Basics of AC Induction Motors. This video explores the basic principles of AC Induction motors. This segment discusses magnetism basics, the law of electromagnetic induction, AC current, and the explanation of the rotating magnetic field of an induction electric motor – getting to the basic parameters of how an AC induction electric motor works. This was originally presented at the Reliability, Process, and Maintenance (RPM) Symposium on Sep 13-14, 2016.
