Figure 6 shows the influence of skewing on the resultant winding factor for a particular harmonic component.
As can be seen, rotor skewing introduces further harmonic components into the spectrum.
Moreover, there is some uncompensated side pull due to one-direction skewing and lower speed for a given loading torque.
Skewing is a complication that is unnecessary where dowels are used.
In this particular case, the resolution of the die skewing problem was a simple correction.
Skewing of slots may also complicate set of armature winding, reduce effective area of slot and increase the length of conductor.
Slots skewing angle and equal values: slot opening and interpolar width--have to be equal to the period ([DELTA][alpha]) of irregular moment changes between near positions of rotor stable balance
Effective skewing angle for this construction of generator is [[alpha].
