Effects of Harmonics on Squirrel Cage Rotors

  • May 2023
  • Number of views: 1983
  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

If you mention harmonics, engineers get excited while the eyes of non-engineers glaze over. The truth is that harmonics can be easily understood when explained in layman’s terms.

Si mencionas la palabra armónicos, los ingenieros se emocionan mientras que los ojos de los que no lo son se nublan. La verdad es que los armónicos se pueden entender fácilmente cuando se explican en términos sencillos. 

Fundamentos de Reparación Mecánica de Motores Eléctricos

  • March 2022
  • Number of views: 15778
  • Article rating: 4.0
Book

En toda reparación mecánica, la capacidad para desmontar, reparar y volver a montar el motor de forma apropiada sin dañar innecesariamente ninguna de sus piezas es fundamental.

Esta obra contiene muchas sugerencias sobre el manejo apropiado de las diferentes partes de un motor para minimizar los daños durante el proceso de reparación. Sin embargo, es imposible desarrollar un listado que las incluya todas.

En cambio, el principio básico de tomarse el tiempo para usar la herramienta adecuada y por lo general el procedimiento apropiado guiará a los técnicos por el camino correcto.

Unbalanced Magnetic Pull in Three-phase Electric Motors

  • November 2021
  • Number of views: 8515
  • Article rating: 4.0
Article

Although unbalanced magnetic pull can affect other rotating electric machines such as DC motors and generators and single-phase motors and generators, our focus in this article will be on three-phase squirrel cage induction motors. The two main topics are unbalanced magnetic pull (UMP) and rotor pullover.

Evaluating Noise in Electric Motors

Determining the source of noise in a motor is often much more challenging than correcting it. However, a methodical approach to investigating the noise can narrow down the possible causes.

Considerations for Inrush vs. Locked Rotor Amps

  • June 2021
  • Number of views: 14014
  • Article rating: 1.0
Article

When an AC motor is initially energized at rated voltage (and frequency), the current drawn is many times rated current until the motor attains full operating speed. Consequences of starting current include short time overheating of stator windings and rotors, undesirable operation of overload protective devices and a sag in the supply voltage.

Consideraciones para los Amperios Inrush vs Rotor Bloqueado

  • June 2021
  • Number of views: 26088
  • Article rating: 3.6
Article

Cuando se energiza inicialmente un motor de CA a su voltaje nominal (y frecuencia), el motor toma varias veces la corriente nominal hasta que alcanza toda la velocidad de operación. Las consecuencias de la corriente de arranque incluyen: Breve sobrecalentamiento de los bobinados del estator y del rotor, disparos no deseados de los dispositivos de protección y caídas de voltaje en el suministro eléctrico.

Vertical Motor Operation and Repair

Convention presentation

Vertical motors differ from horizontal motors in numerous ways, yet some view them as “just a horizontal motor turned on end.” The obvious differences are the (usually) thrust bearings, with arrangements varying from single- to three-thrust bearings with different orientations suited for specific load, rpm and applications. Less obvious differences are in the ventilation arrangements, shaft stiffness, degrees of protection and runout tolerances. This recording will cover those topics.

Principles of Medium & Large AC Motors, 1st Edition - IEC
