Textile Industry:- The textile industry requires special types of drives for
(i) Weaving and (ii) Spinning
Weaving The motors used in weaving mills must have good cooling capacity to keep their temperatures within limits in the presence of larger power losses. The rating of the motors and the cooling facility must be properly selected, because these motors are used in conditions where high moisture content is present along with lot cage induction motors with high rotor resistance, totally enclosed fan cooled and having high temperature the rating of these motors may be 2-3 hps. These motors are normally run at 750-1000 rpm.
Spinning The spinning mills use one of the following three types of drives :
(a) A 4-pole or 6-pole squirrel cage induction motor 4 6
(b) A pole amplitude 6 or 8 poles induction motor
(c) Two separate motors to be runs at 1500/1000 or 1000/750 rpm. But whatever may be the types of motor used.
