High-Potential Testing of AC Windings

  • December 2019
  • Number of views: 22
  • Article rating: No rating
Webinar recording

High-potential testing is routinely used to assess the ground insulation of AC stator windings in-process, after completion of a rewind and post-delivery. This webinar will cover the following topics:

  • Differences between AC and DC high-potential tests
  • Sizing AC test sets when testing large windings
  • What relevant standards address (and what they don’t)
  • Communicating test requirements to all stakeholders
  • When to test and at what levels
  • How to evaluate results

This webinar benefits service center managers, supervisors and technicians responsible for high-potential testing.

Considerations for random to form winding conversions

  • December 2019
  • Number of views: 83
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

With a steady increase in random wound AC motor sizes and the obvious superiority of the form coil winding, one area where we can help improve customers' motor reliability is by redesigning those large random wound motors to accept form coils. Most repairers would agree that machines rated larger than 600 hp (450 kW) should be designed as form coil machines. Likewise, those rated over 2 kV will be much more reliable as form coil machines.

No one wants to rewind a motor using 60 #14 AWG (62- 1.6 mm) wires in hand. With an abundance of niche suppliers of stator laminations, the cost and practicality of converting a random wound motor to form coil are available to nearly all service centers. Replacement laminations can be punched, laser-cut or water-cut, and supplied with very reasonable delivery times.

Consideraciones para convertir bobinados de alambre redondo a pletina (solera)

Con el aumento continuo de los tamaños de los motores CA y la obvia superioridad de los devanados con bobinas preformadas (pletina o solera), un área en la que podemos ayudar a mejorar la confiabilidad de los motores de nuestros clientes es rediseñando estos motores grandes de alambre redondo para que acepten bobinas preformadas. La mayoría de los reparadores estarían de acuerdo en que las máquinas de alambre redondo por arriba de 600 hp (450 kW) deberían rediseñarse con bobinas preformadas. Así mismo, aquellas con tensiones nominales superiores a 2 kV serían más confiables con bobinas de pletina.

Nadie quiere rebobinar un motor con 60 #14 AWG (62- 1.6 mm). Con la abundancia de proveedores especializados en laminaciones de estatores, el costo y la practicidad para convertir motores de alambre redondo a pletina está al alcance de casi todos los centros de servicio. Las laminaciones para reemplazar el núcleo pueden ser troqueladas o cortadas con láser o agua y entregadas en tiempos muy razonables.

The Marketing & Industry Awareness Committee met October 3-4 in St. Louis.   As part of our fall meeting routine each year, the committee discussed EASA’s ongoing Industry Awareness Campaign’s results in getting EASA-authored articles published in the trade press. It’s my pleasure once again to share these very positive results. 

Conexiones Externas en los Motores Eléctricos Trifásicos

Webinar recording

La conexión incorrecta de los motores eléctricos es una causa frecuente de fallo y es más común de lo que parece. La falta de información y la mala interpretación de los datos de placa son algunas de sus causas. En este webinario se explican los diferentes tipos de conexiones para los motores eléctricos trifásicos de una o varias velocidades con al menos 6 cables de salida y se comparan las equivalencias NEMA e IEC para el marcado de cables. La información proporcionada también será de gran utilidad para evitar el conexionado incorrecto en los diferentes voltajes. También incluye las conexiones por devanado partido (Part Winding) y como interpretar la información de la conexión de la placa de datos.

What watts, what pounds? Working with stator core test results

  • November 2019
  • Number of views: 583
  • Article rating: 4.0
Article

The two primary reasons for performing stator core testing in the service center are (1) to verify that the stator core is acceptable for continued use and in the event of a rewind, and (2) to verify that the repair process has not adversely changed the stator core condition. The purpose of this article is to discuss how we determine, assess and compare stator core test results. It is extremely important to understand that variance in test procedures may invalidate comparison.

Management Pulse: Healthcare and other benefits survey compares results with 2014 responses

EASA’s most recent Management Pulse survey compared answers to similar questions asked in a healthcare and other benefits survey conducted in September 2014. With the challenges of finding and retaining employees, the survey comparison of what has changed in the last five years could provide some clues to the future direction and employee expectations in those areas.

¿Cuántos vatios, cuántas libras? Trabajando con los resultados de la prueba de núcleo del estator

  • Number of views: 208
  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

Las dos razones principales para realizar la prueba de núcleo del estator en el centro de servicios son (1) verificar que el núcleo del estator es apto para uso continuo y en caso de rebobinado y (2) verificar que el proceso de rebobinado no ha alterado de forma adversa la condición del núcleo del estator. El propósito de este artículo es discutir como determinar, evaluar y comparar los resultados de la prueba de núcleo. Es muy importante comprender que la variación de los procedimientos de prueba puede invalidar la comparación.

Air Gap: What Is It, What Does It Do, and Why Is It Important?

The physical air gap between the rotor or armature and the stator or field frame is complex and plays a critical role in the performance of AC and DC machines. Most repairers do not realize how little they understand about this subject.
