# Advice 1: How to increase motor power

The power of the motor depends on the parameters of the current flowing through its windings. For DC motors you just need to increase its value. Engines operating on alternating current, can be included in the network with greater frequency. There are special cases when the three-phase electric motor included in an ordinary household network, then you need to make constructive changes.
You will need
• tester;
• - a set of wires;
• - current source with adjustable power;
• - frequency Converter.
Instruction
1
Connect the motor to a current source of variable EMF. Increase its value. Along with it will increase the voltage on the motor winding. Keep in mind that if we neglect losses in the supply conductors, which are very small, then the EMF source equal to the voltage on the windings. Calculate the magnification power of the motor. To do this, find how many times the increased tension, and lift this value into a square.
2
Example. The voltage on the windings of the motor was increased from 110 to 220 V. how many times has increased its power? The voltage increased to 220/110=2 times. Therefore, the engine power was more in 22=4 times.
3
Rewind the motor windings. The vast majority of cases, to the winding of the motor is used copper wire. Use wire of the same length, but with a greater section. The resistance of the winding will decrease and current and power of the engine at the same time increase. The voltage on the windings must remain constant.
4
Example. A motor with a winding cross-section 0.5 mm2 wound wire with a cross section of 0.75 mm2. How many times has increased its capacity if the voltage value constant? The cross section of the winding is increased 0,75/0,5=1,5 times. At the same time increased engine power.
5
When switching on three-phase asynchronous motor in single-phase domestic network, increase its useful capacity. To do this, disable one of its windings. Disappear the braking torque generated in all the windings, and the output power of the engine will increase.
6
Increase the capacity of asynchronous AC motor, increasing the frequency of the AC current flowing through the windings. To do this to the engine, attach the frequency Converter. Increasing the frequency of the applied current, increase the power of the motor. The value of the power capture by the tester operating in the mode of the power meter.

# Advice 2 : How to determine motor power

AC motors are divided into two major classes: synchronous and asynchronous.
The principal difference from the first second is that in induction motors, you can change the speed of the output shaft end, which allows increase the life of equipment and reduce energy costs. One of the most important characteristics of any motor, be it synchronous or asynchronous, is its power. The power of the motor, normally indicated in its technical passport.

Another way to determine capacity is similar to a school science lab. Includes motor, measure it voltage and current of each phase with a voltmeter and ammeter, respectively (devices must be connected in series). Then calculate full capacity for a very simple formula. Found the voltage multiplied by the sum of currents in phases.

You can also take the measurements of the motor (length, shaft diameters) and define the directory to which series is your engine. Knowing the series, you will learn and the powerthat is given in this Handbook.

# Advice 3 : How to find out the motor power

In that case, if after a careful examination of the body of the motor was not able to find the value of its capacity, calculate it yourself. To calculate the power consumption measure the current on the windings of the rotor and using the formula find the consumed electric power. You can determine the motor power, knowing its structure and dimensions. To calculate the net power of the motor, find the frequency of rotation of its shaft and the torque on it.

Find out the frequency of the alternating current network to which the connected motor and the synchronous speed of the shaft. To determine the constant of the pole dividing the product of the core diameter on the frequency of the synchronous shaft, multiply by 3.14 and divide successively on the network frequency and the number 120 (3,14•D•n/(120•f)). It will be a pole dividing machine. Find the number of poles and multiply by 60 the frequency of the current in the network and dividing the result by the frequency of rotation of the shaft. Multiply the result by 2. According to these data in the table to determine the dependence of the constant of a motor With the number of poles, find the value of the constant. This constant and multiply by the square of the core diameter, the length, and the synchronous rotational speed, and multiply the result by 10^(-6) (P = C•D2•l•n•10^(-6)). The power value will get kilowatts.

# Advice 5 : How to increase the frequency of the current

Due to increased migration along the chain of charges increases the frequency of the current. In turn, the increase in the number migrated per unit of time charges amounted to an increase of current in the circuit and reduce its resistance, and this can be achieved by using a circuit with a capacitor.
You will need
• - capacitor;
• generator;
• key;
• - wires.
Instruction
1
Assemble the circuit with the capacitor, in which a sinusoidal voltage creates a generator of alternating current.
2
At zero voltage in the time circuit key in the first quarter of the period the voltage at the generator terminals will increase, and the capacitor will start charging. In the assembled chain will appear current, but, despite the fact that the voltage on the plates of the generator is still quite small, the value of the current in the circuit will be greatest (the value of its charge).
3
Note that decreasing the discharge of the capacitor increased current in the circuit is reduced, and the total discharge current is zero. The value of the voltage on the plates of the capacitor will continue to grow, and at the time of full discharge of the capacitor reaches the maximum value (i.e. the value will be completely opposite to the voltage on the plates of the generator). Thus, we can conclude: in the initial moment of time the current with the greatest power will flock to the uncharged capacitor, and the charging will start to decrease.
Note
Remember that an increase in the frequency of the current decreases and the resistance of the capacitor alternating current (capacitive resistance of the capacitor). Thus, the resistance capacity is inversely proportional to the capacitance circuit and the frequency of the feeding current.
