AutoCAD
AutoCAD is a software application for computer-aided design (CAD) and drafting in both
2D and 3D. It is developed and marketed by Autodesk, Inc. The native file format of
AutoCAD is .dwg.
Some of the examples of industry-specific CAD applications built on the AutoCAD platform
are:
* AutoCAD Electrical: It is designed specifically to aid in the creation of electrical controls
* AutoCAD Civil 3D: It is designed to aid civil engineers in the creation of land,
transportation, and water systems
* AutoCAD Mechanical: It is designed for mechanical engineers to design parts ranging in
all kinds of fields but mainly automotive
* AutoCAD Map 3D: It is designed to aid in the planning and mapping of model
infrastructures
and there are many more applications specific to certain applications
Co-ordinate systems in AutoCAD
There are three co-ordinate systems in AutoCAD
- Absolute co-ordinate system
- Relative co-ordinate system
- Relative polar co-ordinate system
a. Absolute co-ordinate system:
Values are based on the origin (0,0) where X and Y axes intersect. This is used when the
precise values of X and Y are known
For ex: A point (5,3) means it is at horizontal distance (X) of 5 units and vertical distance
(Y) of 3 units from the origin (0,0)
b. Relative co-ordinate system:
Values are based on the last point entered. To specify a relative co-ordinate, the symbol
@ is used. This means that last point is treated as origin whenever @ is used.
For ex: @20,36 means that this point is at horizontal distance (X) of 20 units and vertical
distance (Y) of 36 units from the previous point
c. Relative polar co-ordinate system:
Values are in polar form, with the distance and the angle given. The angle is specified by
the symbol <
For ex: @30<45 means the point is at horizontal distance (X) of 20 units and at angle of
45o from the previous point

The AutoCAD screen contains various toolbars, menus. The designs are drawn in the
Drawing Space. The commands are entered in the Command line window. This
window needs to be watched each time an activity is to be done in the drawing space. It
prompts the user for the next action. The Status Bar contains various modes of drawing
like Grid, Osnap, Otrack etc.

Note that the workspace will always be black in colour, but the lines can be given colours
other than white also.
Layers can be used to group related items so that they can be modified together. For
example, all items in a layer can be given a specific colour. Each layer can be hidden or
viewed separately.
Basic procedures while starting a new file
1. Create a new file:
File > New or- Ctrl+N
2. Set the limits of the image
a. In the command window, type:
limits <enter>
Specify lower left corner: 0, 0 <enter>
Specify upper right corner: <depends on the size of the overall image> <enter>
zoom all <enter>
Suppose the maximum length and breadth of a drawing in 30 cms, set upper right corner
as a bit higher number like (40,40). Limits can be set using the above command, or menu
option Format>Drawing Limits

Winding Diagrams
Electrical drawing consists of drawing developed winding diagrams for DC machines and
AC machines
1. DC winding diagrams
DC windings can be classified as
- Lap or Wave
- Single layer or double layer
- Simplex or multiplex
- Progressive or retrogressive

Yb back pitch
Yf front pitch
Yc commutator pitch
A coil (C) can be single turn or multi-turn. The active length of the coil under the poles (P)
is called a Conductor (Z), that is coil sides
Number of coils = number of commutator segments
In a single layer winding, Z=2C
In a double layer winding, Z=C
In general,
Pole pitch = Z/P
Back pitch, Yb = Z/P+m+K
Front pitch, Yf = Z/P-m+K
K is a number added or subtracted to make the pitches odd number. m is called
multiplicity that tells if the winding is simplex, duplex or multiplex

2. AC winding diagrams
AC windings can be
- Lap or Wave
- Single or double layer
- Full pitch or short pitch
- Integral slot or fractional slot
2a. Single layer Lap winding
Draw a developed winding diagram for an AC machine with 4 poles, 24 slots. The winding
is single layer lap.
Objective:
To design and draw winding for an AC machine which is lap wound, single layer and full
pitched
Given data:
Number of slots, Z: 24
Number of poles, P: 4
Calculations:
Slot pitch, slots/pole = 24/4 = 6, that is, 6 slots under each pole
Slot angle, 180o/slot pitch = 180o/6 = 30o electrical degrees
Slots/pole/phase = 24/6/3 = 2, that is, under each pole, there are 2 Red, 2 Blue, 2
Yellow conductors
Slot distance, 120o/slot angle = 120o/30o = 4, that is, 4 slots difference between same
phase
Coil span, winding pitch/slot angle = (180o-(slots shorted x slot angle))/slot angle =
(180o-(0 x 30o))/30o = 6
Usually small single layer windings are Mush windings, which should have an odd coil
span. So coil span=6-1=5, to make it odd
Assume sequence as RYB
Starting conductor of:
- R is 1 (by default)
- Y is 1 + 120/slot angle = 1+120/30 = 5
- B is 1 + 240/slot angle = 1+240/30 = 9

2b. Single layer, short pitched, Lap winding


Draw a winding diagram for an AC machine with 2 poles, 24 slots. The winding is single
layer lap, short pitched by one slot.
Objective:
To design and draw winding for an AC machine which is lap, single layer and short pitched
Given data:
Number of slots, Z: 24
Number of poles, P: 2
Slots shorted: 1
Calculations:
Slot pitch, slots/pole = 24/2 = 12, that is, 12 slots under each pole
Slot angle, 180o/slot pitch = 180o/12 = 15o electrical degrees
Slots/pole/phase = 24/2/3 = 4, that is, under each pole, there are 4 Red, 4 Blue, 4
Yellow conductors
Slot distance, 120o/slot angle = 120o/15o = 8, that is, 8 slots difference between same
phase
Coil span, winding pitch/slot angle = (180o-(slots shorted x slot angle))/slot angle =
(180o-(1 x 15o))/15o = 11
Coil span is 11. This can also be calculated as slot pitch-slots shorted = 12-1=11
A single layer winding is a Mush winding, which must have an odd coil span. Here, due to
the short pitch, coil span is 11 which is odd.
Assume sequence as RYB. Starting conductor of:
- R is 1 (by default)
- Y is 1 + 120/slot angle = 1+120/15 = 9
- B is 1 + 240/slot angle = 1+240/15 = 17
Slot position table:
Since the winding is short pitched by 1 slot, the whole winding is shifted left by one
position. That is, the first red conductor moves to the last, i.e., 24 th position.

Draw the winding diagram of a 30 slot, 4 pole, 3 phase lap wound rotor of an induction
motor
Objective:
To design and draw winding for an AC machine which is fractional slot lap wound and
double layer
Given Data
Slots, S = 30
Poles, P = 3
Phases, m=3
Calculations:
Slot pitch = slots/pole = 30/4
Slot angle = 180o/slot pitch = 180o/30/4
Slots/pole/phase = 30/4/3 = 5/2 = 2
This is a fractional slot winding. In a fractional slot winding, S/P/m = M/d = I n/d

Basic unit of this winding consists of d=2 poles. Since there are 4 poles, this winding has
4/2 = 2 units
Each phase in a unit has d-n=2-1=1 group of I=2 coils and
n=1 group of I+1=3 coils each
Note: 1 x 2 + 1 x 3 = 5 (M)
Difference between two slots which correspond to two consecutive phasors of slots is D,
given by D = (1+mMp)/d, where p is the smallest integer that can make D an integer.
D = (1+15p)/2
If p=1, D=8
Distribution of slots is:
Red phase: 1, 1+D, 1+2D-mM, 1+3D-mM, 1+4D-mM, 1+5D-mM
Blue phase: 1+6D-2mM, 1+7D-2mM, 1+8D-2mM, 1+9D-2mM, 1+10D-2mM
Yellow phase: 1+11D-3mM, 1+12D-3mM, 1+13D-3mM, 1+14D-3mM, 1+15D-3mM

Machine Drawing
In Machine drawing, the activities involve drawing front view and side view of
DC machines Poles, complete DC machine
AC machines Rotating machines, Transformers
3. DC machines:
3a. Draw sectional end elevation of a pole of a DC motor with the following data:
Width: 14 cms
Height with shoe: 19 cms
Pole arc: 20 cms
Pole radius: 28 cms
Pole shoe height: 3 cms
Yoke thickness: 9.5 cms
Air gap length: 1 cms
Bolt thickness: 1.5 cms
Assume any missing data accordingly.
Objective:
To design and draw the end elevation of a DC machine pole
Theory:
This is an end view of a DC machine pole. It consists of a pole, pole shoe, attached to the
yoke using a bolt. While the main data is given, certain other data needs to be calculated
on the basis of the given data, and certain other information need to be assumed
proportional to the entire image.
Calculations:
i. There are four arcs to be drawn, one for pole, two for yoke, one for armature
Pole arc is given as 20 cms. Since this cannot be measured directly, the angle which it
subtends from the arc centre must be calculated, as per the formula
=180 x l/( x r)
where l is the pole arc length
r is the pole arc radius
180 x 28/( x 20) gives 80.21o. The pole arc subtends and angle of 80.21o from the
centre. Drawing two lines from the centre of the arcs at this angle gives the ends of the
pole arc.
ii. The overall height of the image is about 29 cms. Set the limits of the workspace to a
higher value like 40 cms
Procedure:
1. Create a new file
2. In the command window, typelimits
Specify lower left corner: 0, 0 <enter>
Specify upper right corner: 40,40 <enter>
zoom all <enter>

<enter>

3. To draw pole arc, in the command window, type


arc <enter> (Draw > Arc > Start, End, Radius can also be used)
Specify start point of arc or [Center]: C <enter>
Specify center point of arc: <click on bottom of workspace and move mouse rightwards>
Specify start point of arc: 28 <enter> ( for the 28 cms of pole arc)
Specify end point of arc or [Angle/chord Length]: <move mouse leftwards and click>
An arc of 28 cms radius is created. Any extra length can be deleted later when the entire
image is drawn.
4. Repeat the above for the yoke arc.
Its radius is calculated as- pole height with shoe + pole radius, i.e., 19 + 28 = 47 cms
5. To draw the armature arc which is at a distance of 1 cm airgap lengthoffset <enter>
(-or- Modify > Offset -or- click on Offset icon)
Specify offset distance or [Through]: 1
Select object to offset or <exit>: <select the pole arc>
Specify point on side to offset: <click below the pole arc>
Select object to offset or <exit>: <esc to reset the offset command>
An arc of radius 27 cms (28-1) is created for the armature.
6. To draw the yoke, which is 9.5 cms thick, repeat the above offset command with
distance as 9.5
An arc of radius 56.5 cms (47+9.5) is created for the armature
7. Pole bodyDraw a vertical line passing through the centre of the arcs. The pole width is given as 14
cms. The edges of the pole body are 7 cms away from this centre line. Using offset
command and distance of 7, create two lines on either side of the centre line, by selecting
the centre line
8. Pole arcPole arc is given as 20 cms. Since this cannot be measured directly, the angle which it
subtends from the arc centre must be calculated, as per the formula
=180 x l/( x r)
where l is the pole arc length
r is the pole arc radius
o
o
180 x 28/( x 20) gives 80.21 . The pole arc subtends and angle of 80.21 from the
centre. Drawing two lines from the centre of the arcs at this angle gives the ends of the
pole arc. Draw two lines, each at 40.1o from the central line
9. Pole shoePole shoe height is 3 cms. Draw a horizontal line from the top of the pole arc at a distance

Pole arc/pole pitch = 69%
Air gap length at main pole: 0.5 cms
Interpole width: 4 cms
Air gap length at interpole: 0.6 cms
Number of slots: 60, open type
Size of each slot: 1 cm x 5 cms
Shaft diameter: 12 cms
Winding thickness: 2 cms
Objective:
To design and draw the end elevation of a DC machine from the given dimensions
Theory:
This is an end view of a DC motor with armature and poles. It consists of 6 main poles
and 6 interpoles.
While the main data is given, certain other data needs to be calculated on the basis of the
given data, and certain other information need to be assumed proportional to the entire
image.
Calculations:
i. Number of poles is 12, that is, 6 main and 6 interpoles. Angle between a main pole and
interpole is 30o (360o/12)
ii. To find yoke thickness:
Yoke outside diameter is 115 cms. With the other dimension provided, yoke thickness is
to be calculated.
Armature radius + main pole air gap + main pole height + yoke thickness = yoke outside
radius
55/2 + 0.5 + 21 + yoke thickness = 115/2
yoke thickness = 8.5 cms
iii. To find interpole height:
Armature radius + interpole air gap + interpole height + yoke thickness = yoke outside
radius
55/2 + 0.6 + interpole height + 8.5 = 115/2
interpole height = 20.9 cms
iv. Pole arc length:
Pole arc/pole pitch = 69%

44
Dept. of Electrical & Electronics Engineering
School of Engineering & Technology, Jain University

Pole pitch = D/P


D is diameter of armature, 55 cms
P is number of main poles, 6
Pole arc length = 0.69 x x 55/6 = 19.8 cms. Round it off to 20 cms
Since a curved line like pole arc cannot be measured directly, the angle it subtends has to
be calculated to get the ends of the arc. Using the formula=180 x l/( x r)
where l is the pole arc length
r is the pole arc radius
pole arc radius = armature radius + main pole air gap length, 55/2 + 0.5
o
o
180 x 20/( x (55/2 + 0.5)) gives 40.92 . The pole arc subtends and angle of 40.92 from
the centre. Drawing two lines from the centre of the arcs at this angle gives the ends of
the pole arc. Draw two lines, each at 20.4o from the central line, which gives the two ends
of the pole arc.
v. The largest dimension in the diagram is 115 cms. Set the workspace limits to a higher

axis at distance of 7 cms from this line.
b. Using offset command at distance of 0.5 cms, create another circle outside armature
circle for the pole arc. Once the poles are drawn, excess lines can be deleted.
c. Pole shoe height is not mentioned, can be assumed, taking 2 cms.
d. The pole arc subtends and angle of 40.92o from the centre. Drawing two lines from the
centre of the arcs at this angle gives the ends of the pole arc. Draw two lines, each at
20.4o from the central line such that they touch the pole arc circle. Complete the pole
shoe by drawing appropriate lines, and delete unnecessary lines using trim command.
5. InterpoleIt is just a rectangle of height 20.9 cms, width 4 cms with no shoe, at an angle of 30 o
from main pole

centre. Drawing two lines from the centre of the arcs at this angle gives the ends of the
pole arc. Draw two lines, each at 20.4o from the central line, which gives the two ends of
the pole arc.
