In this paper, a Y-Δ hybrid connection for a high-voltage induction motor is described. Low winding harmonic content is achieved by careful consideration of the interaction between the Y- and Δ-connected three-phase winding sets so that the magnetomotive force (MMF) in the air gap is close to sinusoid. Essentially, the two winding sets operate in a six-phase mode. This paper goes on to verify that the fundamental distribution coefficient for the stator MMF is enhanced compared to a standard three-phase winding set. The design method for converting a conventional double-layer lap winding in a high-voltage induction motor into a Y-Δ hybrid lap winding is described using standard winding theory as often applied to small- and medium-sized motors. The main parameters addressed when designing the winding are the conductor wire gauge, coil turns, and parallel winding branches in the Y and Δ connections. A winding design scheme for a 1250-kW 6-kV induction motor is put forward and experimentally validated; the results show that the efficiency can be raised effectively without increasing the cost.
