Single-Phase AC Induction

Single phase induction motors have been the most common motors used in large appliances. The rotor is typically an aluminum squirrel cage and the stator has two coils and a phase-shift capacitor. Typically the starting coil and phase shift capacitor are switched off by a centrifugal switch when the motor reaches the desired speed. The control is often a simple on/off control using Triacs or ACS devices.
