slipring motor

A look at the slipring motor and its various industrial applications.

A slipring motor is also commonly referred to as a wound rotor motor. It is a type of alternating current induction machine that comprises a group of coils that terminate in sliprings where external impedance can be connected. In electrical terms, a slipring is a method that is used for making electrical connections to a rotating assembly. Sliprings, are commonly found in electrical generators for a variety of systems including alternators, packaging machinery, wind turbines, alternators and cable reels. Although they are more expensive to buy and maintain than squirrel cage motors, they are far more flexible and configurable.
