Considerations for random to form winding conversions

  • December 2019
  • Number of views: 1002
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)

Article

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.

Magnetic Wedges

An increasing number of manufacturers are using magnetic wedges in their form-wound machines. When a winder fails to replace magnetic wedges in kind, the winding temperature rise can increase by 20°C, and the magnetizing current can increase by 20% or more.

Working with odd-turn (unequal-turn) windings

  • July 2018
  • Number of views: 1260
Article

Manufacturers almost always utilize machine-inserted concentric windings for random-wound, three-phase stators when their processes can facilitate it due to lower manufacturing costs. Many service centers can produce concentric windings too, but the most common practice is to utilize the two-layer lap winding. For form-wound stators, the two-layer lap winding is almost always used by manufacturers and service centers alike. The purpose of this article is to provide some tips for working with odd-turn (unequal-turn) windings, or two-layer windings where the total number of turns per slot is an odd number (e.g., 3,5,7,9…n). In such cases, the top and bottom coil sides must have a different number of turns.

Trabajando con bobinados con espiras diferentes (impares)

Article

Cuando sus procesos pueden facilitarlo y para rebajar costos de fabricación, los fabricantes casi siempre emplean en los estatores trifásicos de alambre redondo, bobinados concéntricos insertados con máquinas. Muchos centros de servicio también pueden rebobinar bobinados concéntricos, pero la práctica más común es la de utilizar bobinados excéntricos de doble capa. Para los estatores con bobinas pre-formadas, los fabricantes y los centros de servicio utilizan la mayoría de las veces, bobinados excéntricos de doble capa.

La finalidad de este artículo es proporcionar algunos consejos para trabajar con bobinados con espiras diferentes (impares) o con bobinados excéntricos de doble capa donde el número de espiras por ranura es un número impar (Ej. 3,5,7,9…n). En estos casos, los lados superior e inferior de la bobina deben tener un número de espiras diferente.

Common recommendations for stored motors

Article

When an electric motor is expected to be stored for an appreciable time before it is placed into service, certain steps should be taken to ensure that it will be suitable for operation when it is needed. The practical limitation we need to recognize is that much of what we do when putting a motor into long-term storage has to be undone when the same motor is moved into operation. This article addresses common recommendations for stored motors.

Rewind tips for 2300-volt, random-wound motors

  • October 2001
  • Number of views: 519
Article

When rewinding a motor, the service center is restricted by the original design. Sometimes, we encounter a motor design we wish had never been developed. Many winders would agree that the random-wound, 2300-volt motor design falls into that category. From the manufacturer's perspective, a random-wound, 2300-volt motor represents a substantial reduction in manufacturing cost. The great challenge to the service center is in successfully rewinding this design while maintaining profit.
