The formal designation and full title for this standard that was published in April 2020 is, “CSA C392:20 Testing of Three-Phase Squirrel Cage Motors During Refurbishment.” This is the second edition of the standard and supersedes the previous edition published in 2011. The standard focuses on the identification of those tests that help to determine whether the efficiency of a motor is maintained after it is “refurbished,” without requiring a motor efficiency test.
