So serious is this heat that it can distort a major APUS engine component, the rotor shaft, and cause significant damage.
The difference between the rate of rotation of the rotor and that of the magnetic field is called the "slip."
These dummy pistons are shown at the near end of the rotor in Fig. 35.
The field system is called the stator, and the armature the rotor.
There are rings of blades round the rotor, tightly fixed to its surface.
"Because the rotor takes care of that, after the engine is dead," explained Linda.
Tesla further explained that the 110-horsepower turbine represented a single stage engine, or one composed simply of one rotor.
The rotor of a variometer or variocoupler is a rotating coil.
The shaft of a little one twelfth horsepower motor adjoining was connected with the rotor through the centre of the casing.
This is a plan view showing the rotor resting in position in the lower half of its casing.
