Inverter Duty Three-Phase Motor Windings

Article

With the advent of solid-state electronic variable frequency drives (VFDs) in the late 1980s, it was found that the windings of motors used on VFDs failed more frequently than when powered by a utility (sine wave) supply. By the turn of the century, motor manufacturers had gained a better understanding of how VFDs affected motor windings. This article describes the materials and methods associated with inverter duty windings.

Con la llegada de los variadores de frecuencia electrónicos (VFD) de estado sólido a fines de la década de 1980, se descubrió que los bobinados de los motores que funcionaban con VFDs fallaban con más frecuencia que al estar alimentados con la energía convencional (onda sinusoidal). A principios de siglo, los fabricantes de motores habían comprendido mejor cómo los VFD afectaban los devanados del motor, y al igual que los proveedores de materiales electro, aislantes habían desarrollado materiales y métodos para mejorar la confiabilidad de los devanados de los motores alimentados con VFDs. En este artículo, describiremos los materiales y métodos asociados con los devanados inverter duty.

Why “White Coils” are a “Red Flag”

The importance of preventing the ingress of air during global vacuum pressure impregnation of form-coil windings

The goal of vacuum pressure impregnation is complete saturation of a winding with insulating resin. As resin penetrates the insulating materials, it causes them to darken. If some insulation is a lighter shade, the coil or jumper is not fully saturated. The winding is not properly protected, and if the problem is not addressed, it is likely to cause premature failure of the unit. This could result in costly warranty work, or at a minimum, will be a failure to provide your customers with the quality they expect and deserve.

Porqué las "Bobinas Bancas" son una "Señal de Alarma"

La importancia de prevenir el ingreso de aire durante la impregnación global por vacío y presión de los bobinados preformados

Article

El objetivo de la impregnación por vacío y presión (VPI) es saturar completamente un devanado con resina aislante. A medida que la resina penetra en los materiales aislantes, los oscurece y al drenar la resina VPI del devanado, todo el aislamiento de las cabezas queda oscuro en un tono uniforme. El aislamiento de la conexión también debe quedar oscuro de forma pareja. Si algún aislamiento muestra un tono más claro, la bobina o el puente no han quedado completamente saturados y el devanado no está debidamente protegido. Si no se soluciona el problema, es probable que esto provoque un fallo prematuro en el equipo. Esto podría generar una garantía costosa o, como mínimo, la reparación no brindará a sus clientes la calidad que esperan y merecen.

Relevant standards including IEC 60085 and IEEE 1 have similar definitions for electrical insulating materials (EIM) and electrical insulation systems (EIS). As with any system, there is an interaction between the materials used, and the insulation system developers take great care to ensure that this interaction does not lead to undesirable outcomes.

Considerations for surface masking and winding treatment processes

  • March 2018
  • Number of views: 10392
  • Article rating: 2.0
Article

One of the least popular tasks to perform related to winding treatment processes is preparation and cleanup of fits, threaded holes and machined surfaces. Many service centers invest additional time in the preparation stage so as to minimize the cleanup stage. The most common approach to protecting these surfaces during winding treatment is to utilize masking compounds or dry release sprays.

In the last year, EASA’s technical support staff has received a number of inquiries from members seeking replacement recommendations for Famous Lubricants' “Special Masking Compound” which is currently unavailable. It is believed at this time that the manufacturer intends on continuing production at some point in the future though the time frame is not known. This specific problem leads to a more general question: What is a good practice for choosing a product to mask these surfaces?
