Induction Motor

An AC motor in which the primary winding on one member, usually the stator, is connected to the power source and a secondary winding or a squirrel-cage secondary winding on the other member, usually the rotor, carries the induced current. There is no physical electrical connection to the secondary winding; its current is induced. These motors have a slippage of 2% to 5% compared to synchronous motors.
