Root Cause Failure Analysis, 2nd Edition

  • September 2019
  • Number of views: 3187
Book

This book was developed to help electric motor technicians and engineers prevent repeated failures because the root cause of failure was never determined. By using a proven methodology combined with extensive lists of known causes of failures, one can identify the actual cause of failure without being an “industry expert.” In fact, when properly used, this material will polish one’s diagnostic skills that would qualify one as an industry expert.

Field testing & inspection of 3-phase squirrel cage motors

  • September 2019
  • Number of views: 1322
Article

This article addresses electrical testing and inspection of installed 3-phase squirrel cage motors. The main purposes of testing installed electric motors are condition assessment for continued service or to diagnose suspected faults. The emphasis here will be on diagnostic electrical testing and interpretation, as well as physical inspection key points. Note: Most of the tests and inspections described in this article can also be performed on 3-phase wound rotor motors, and induction and synchronous generators.

  • Number of views: 950
Software

This version of the EASA Motor Rewind Database software takes a large leap forward with the data that it provides members. Most notably, it now has the ability to connect to a live, ever-expanding online database of more than 250,000 windings. This live database will be continuously monitored, updated and corrected as needed by EASA’s Technical Support Staff.

End turn and connection spacing in large motors and generators

  • September 2015
  • Number of views: 674
Article

This article looks at an issue encountered with new air-cooled machines rated at 13.8 kV that generated large quantities of ozone and had very high partial discharge levels. The basic problem with the windings in these machines was incorrect spacing of the end turns and the main leads. There was also a lack of space between the series and group connections in the windings.
