To make more efficient use of time and materials, winders may want to increase the number of parallel circuits when winding an AC stator (or wound rotor). However, there are limits to the number of parallel circuits that can be used in an AC stator (or wound rotor) design. In this article, some of the potential problems associated with increasing the number of parallel circuits will be analyzed.
