The energy sector plays a major role in driving Kenya’s economy. The need to conceive, develop and sustain energy generating sources cannot be underestimated. Being a growing economy, Kenya therefore needs to redirect her effort in production of self-sustaining energy generating sources. It is in this line that the government through the ministry of industrialization, energy and vision 2030 sought to establish the Numerical Machine Complex, which serves as a hub for fabrication, assembling and servicing small to medium scale moving machines.
Since its conception NMC has been used majorly for assembling small motors and generators from the imported machine parts. The economic burden of importing already fabricated parts in addition to the high assembling costs, is considerably high for a growing economy which not only strives to self- sustain itself but also seeks to create employment for a semi-skilled workforce.
It is in this line that the NMC management decided to look into a more economical option which involves fabrication of the single phase induction motor. Single phase induction motors have a wide range of application in small loads fromfridges, water pumps, fans, washing machines etc.
This project seeks to provide solutionsto the required design specifications for 2.2 KW, 240 V SINGLE PHASE INDUCTION MOTOR forNumerical Machine Complex
