  • Number of views: 1379
  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

In today’s global economy, it is quite possible to get electric motors from all over the world. Most electric motors that are 500 hp (373 kW) or less will conform to one of two basic manufacturing standards; NEMA or IEC. The intent of this article is to focus on IEC standards for managing voltage stress in VFD applications as it pertains to the motor’s windings.

Before putting an AC machine into service, make sure its duty rating matches the application requirements. Otherwise, there’s a good chance excessive heat will degrade the machine’s windings.

Concentric, Lap or Full Slot Lap: When Is a Shortcut Not a Shortcut?

  • March 2022

Article

While manufacturers use concentric windings due to their ability to wind the coils directly into a core, many repairers convert them to lap windings to take advantage of the superior MMF (magneto-motive force) curve. Although the former Tech Note 12 (see page 2-187 of the EASA Technical Manual), and the AC Motor Verification and Redesign Program, Version 4 allow us to convert a concentric winding to a comparable lap winding, there are still some winders using “shortcuts” they have learned over the years.

Concentrico, Excéntrico o Excéntrico a Ranura Llena: ¿Cuándo Un Atajo No Lo Es?

Mientras los fabricantes usan devanados concéntricos por su capacidad para bobinarlos directamente dentro del núcleo, muchos reparadores los convierten en bobinados excéntricos para aprovechar su curva FMM (fuerza magnetomotriz) superior.

Working with Segmented Stator Cores

Article

Induction motor stator cores can be manufactured using single-piece laminations, however, for larger stators, or when minimizing scrap material, the stator laminations are segmented. While most service center repairs of machines with segmented stator laminations require no special attention, this article reviews a few scenarios that are important to be mindful of.

Los núcleos de los motores de inducción se pueden fabricar con laminaciones de una sola pieza, sin embargo, para estatores muy grandes o cuando se minimiza el material de desecho, las laminaciones del estator son segmentadas.  Aunque la mayoría de las reparaciones en el centro de servicio de  las máquinas con estatores con laminaciones segmentadas no requieren atención especial, este artículo analiza algunos escenarios que es importante tener en cuenta.
