Accuracy and precision of measuring & test equipment (M&TE) have been topics of previous Currents articles (November and December 2014). A related topic that was not covered in the previous articles is resolution. The Joint Committee for Guides in Metrology document JCGM 200:2012 defines resolution as “the smallest change in a quantity being measured that causes a perceptible change in the corresponding indication.” Simplified, it’s the smallest difference that can be measured by the subject equipment. The accuracy of the M&TE must be greater than (less accurate) or equal to the resolution. That is, the M&TE must be able to indicate the value that is compared to the standard during calibration.
Let's briefly revisit the importance of accuracy and precision.
La precisión y exactitud de los equipos de prueba & medida (M&TE) han sido tratadas en artículos previos de Currents (noviembre y diciembre de 2014). Un tema relacionado que no fue cubierto en dichos artículos es la resolución. Este artículo cubrirá ese tema.
When considering building a large growler for testing armatures and rotors, the initial decision typically is to select a kVA rating. A primary reason for this is that the growler will need to be connected to a power supply of sufficient ampacity at the supply voltage. To help simplify a complex design process, four kVA ratings have been selected for this article.
Cuando se considera la construcción de un gran growler para probar rotores y armaduras, la decisión inicial típica es seleccionar la potencia en kVA. La razón principal para esto es que el growler necesitará ser conectado a una fuente de alimentación que tenga suficiente amperaje. Para ayudar a simplificar el complejo proceso de diseño, en este artículo hemos seleccionado cinco potencias expresadas en kVA.
Inspection and testing are two of the most important activities performed by service centers. The service center should be focused on minimizing measurement error such that the measurement values are as close to actual values as needed to properly evaluate the measured item.
When a service center's test panel is designed with a limited number of incrementally stepped voltages, there are times when you need a voltage that is not available. In such cases, when you need a non-standard 3-phase voltage, one workaround is to use a 3-phase motor as an autotransformer. This works to step down, or to step up, the available voltage.
This 40-page booklet provides great advice for obtaining the longest, most efficient and cost-effective operation from general and definite purpose electric motors.
