Yaskawa America, Inc. welcomes you to the Motor Basics eLearning Module. This eLearning Module provides a basic understanding of three phase induction motors:
Component Identification (2:21)
Sync Vs Rated Speed (10:17)
Motor Poles (13:10)
This is the first video in a series of building a homemade wood lathe
out of recycled materials. This video covers the building process of
the headstock and the base. The motor is reused from an ancient metal

This is an induction motor, single phase, 127 V. Its nominal speed is 1625RPM.
First I run it with its permanent capacitor, closing the circuit on the two different sides of the capacitor, to sho...
I explain how single phase motors work, the unique function of the shaded pole motor work, what the starter winding does, and capacitors for these motors.
This is a continuation of the "How motors Work for beginners" series.
