If the rotor of an induction motor is not concentric with the stator then an electromagnetic force is generated in a direction that will increase the eccentricity. This is called unbalanced magnetic pull (UMP). The first part of the work presented in this dissertation develops theoretical models which allow the calculation of the UMP in cage induction motors due to static rotor eccentricity. These account for any winding configuration including parallel stator winding connection. The second part of the work verifies the models experimentally using two different cage induction motors. The agreement between predicted and measured values of UMP and line current is found to be good. The investigation leads to several new aspects of the damping effects of parallel stator windings and the cage rotor being highlighted.
