A 3 phase, 4 pole, 400 V, 10 kW slip ring induction motor has rotor resistance = 0.16 ╬® per phase and stator resistor of 0.27 ╬® per phase. The voltage across the slip rings at standstill is 141 V per phase. The motor develops a torque of 62.4 Nm at a slip of 0.08 and the rotor current is 6 A. What is the rotor current if a voltage is injected to the rotor so that the motor runs of slip s = 0.02 and develops same torque?
1. 6 A
2. 5 A
3. 4 A
4. 3 A

Correct Answer - Option 4 : 3 A

Given that, I2 = 6 A

S2 = 0.08

$S{'_2} = 0.02$

In an induction motor, the torque is related as

$T \propto \frac{{3I_2^2{R_2}}}{s}$

So, $\frac{{I_2^2}}{{{s_2}}} = \frac{{{{\left( {I_2^1} \right)}^2}}}{{s_2^2}}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{{{6^2}}}{{0.08}} = \frac{{{{\left( {I_2^1} \right)}^2}}}{{0.02}}$

$\Rightarrow I_2^1 = 3A$
