Assertion [a]: Under V/f control of induction motor, the maximum value of the developed torque remains constant over a wide range of speed in the subsynchronous region.

Reason [r]: The magnetic flux is maintained almost constant at the rated value by keeping the ratio V/f constant over the considered speed range.

A
Both [a] and [r] are true and [r] is the correct reason for [a]
B
Both [a] and [r] are true but [r] is not the correct reason for [a]
C
Both [a] and [r] are false
D
[a] is true but [r] is false
