Short of a length (sometimes referred to as "back of a length" or "short of a good length") is a term used in the sport of cricket. It describes a delivery from the bowler that pitches short of the optimum length. Length in cricket defines where the ball pitches on the wicket.
Also asked, why short pitch winding is used?
The advantages of short pitch winding are: Fractional slot winding or fractional coils can /be used which in turn reduces losses due to the tooth ripple. Mechanical strength of the coil is increased.
What is the fractional pitch winding?
When the angular distance between the sides of a coil is less than the angular distance between the centers of adjacent field poles, the coil is termed to be a fractional pitch coil. An armature winding made up of fractional pitch coils is termed a Fractional Pitch winding.
What is coil pitch and pole pitch?
The distance between the two sides of an individual coil of an AC armature winding is termed the coil pitch. When the angular distance between the sides of a coil is exactly equal to the angular distance between the centers of adjacent field poles, the coil is termed to be a full pitch coil.
