How do you wire a two speed motor?
In this regard, how does a two speed motor work?
Two Speed, Two Winding The two winding motor is made in such a manner that it is really two motors wound into one stator. One winding, when energized, gives one of the speeds. When the second winding is energized, the motor takes on the speed that is determined by the second winding.
Beside above, how do you wire a motor? Connect motor lead 1 to L1 (typically black), motor lead 2 to L2 (typically red), and motor lead 3 to L3 (typically blue). Connect the other motor leads (4, 5, and 6) together. To get the delta start for a six lead motor, don't connect 4, 5, and 6 together.
Also Know, can you put a VFD on a 2 speed motor?
All of GoHz VFDs will operate to 100 / 120 Hz without issues, so the higher motor speed will be achievable with ease via VFD with the Dahlander winding in the lower speed connection. Also be aware that the 2 speed Dahlander motor normally has two different power ratings for the two speeds.
What is double star connection?
The star-connected double-winding construction sometimes used in large steam-turbine generators. Each phase has two separate windings that are connected externally to form two star connections. The high-voltage terminals of each phase are connected in parallel to form a single three-phase output.
