Asynchronous Motors - Electrical Data

Electrical motor data - nominal current, fuse, start ampere, contactor and circuit breaker of asynchronous motors

The table below can used to determine electrical data for asynchronous 380 Voltage motors.

380 Voltage 50 Hz motors have been commonly used in Europe. Note that the nominal voltage of existing 220/380 V and 240/415 V systems shall evolve toward the IEC recommended value of 230/400 V.

Full-voltage, single-speed motor starters

Full-voltage starters (manual and magnetic) apply full voltage directly to motor terminals.

Reduced-voltage, single-speed motor starters

Some machines or loads may require a gentle start and smooth acceleration up to full speed.

Many starters apply reduced voltage to motor windings; primary resistor, primary reactor, autotransformer, and solid state. Part winding and wye-delta starters can also provide reduced-voltage starting, although technically they are not reduced-voltage starters.

Motor Protection

Motors should have protection for themselves, the branch circuit, and the feeder line. Protection, provided by fuses and circuit breakers, guards against fault conditions caused by short circuits or grounds and over currents exceeding locked-rotor values.
