Choosing the Right Insulation System for Medium Voltage Rewinds

  • April 2024
  • Number of views: 2309
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

The insulation system chosen for any rewind should be suitable for the application, the voltage class, and the winding process capability of the service center. In most cases, adherence to “equal to or better than” selection is a good practice.

Choosing an appropriate lead wire for a new stator winding is an important task. The manufacturer’s information is not always available, or the number of circuits or external connection may have been changed, requiring a redesign of the lead wire.  

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

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.

Considerations for surface masking and winding treatment processes

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?

Consideraciones para enmascarar superficies y procesos de tratamiento de bobinados

Una de las actividades a realizar menos populares relacionadas con el tratamiento de los bobinados, es la preparación y la limpieza de los ajustes, agujeros roscados y superficies mecanizadas. Muchos centros de servicio invierten tiempo adicional durante la etapa de preparación para minimizar la etapa de limpieza. El enfoque más común para proteger estas superficies durante el tratamiento del bobinado consiste en utilizar compuestos para enmascarar o aerosoles de liberación de película seca. Durante el último año, el departamento de soporte técnico de EASA ha recibido una serie de consultas por parte de los miembros buscando recomendaciones para reemplazar el producto “Special Masking Compound” de Famous Lubricants’ (ver Figura 1) que actualmente no se encuentra disponible. Se cree en estos momentos que el fabricante tiene la intención de continuar con la producción en el futuro, aunque el plazo se desconoce. Este problema específico conlleva a una pregunta más general: ¿Cuál es una buena práctica para escoger un producto para enmascarar estas superficies?
