The life of a three-phase stator winding can be shortened dramatically when the motor is exposed to unfavorable operating conditions — electrical, mechanical or environmental. The winding failures illustrated here are typical of what can happen is such circumstances. Failures are shown here to help identify the causes of failure, so that, where possible, preventative measures may be taken.
