    Any one can help me in making 1/8 HP motor in single phase. I need three speed from one winding. for example ( 1440 RPM, 930 RPM and 720 RPM ) should come from one winding and rated power should be 1/8 HP and rated current should be 0.650/0.85 AMP.

    3 speeds from " one winding " is common, though that one winding is comprised of three tapped windings, that utilize one or two thirds, or all of the winding to produce different speeds...
    What you want, can be accomplished by resistors in an external circuit, tho' it is a waste of power
