Unbalanced Magnetic Pull in Three-phase Electric Motors

  • November 2021
  • Number of views: 971
  • Article rating: 3.0
Article

Although unbalanced magnetic pull can affect other rotating electric machines such as DC motors and generators and single-phase motors and generators, our focus in this article will be on three-phase squirrel cage induction motors. The two main topics are unbalanced magnetic pull (UMP) and rotor pullover.

Evaluating Noise in Electric Motors

Determining the source of noise in a motor is often much more challenging than correcting it. However, a methodical approach to investigating the noise can narrow down the possible causes.

Considerations for Inrush vs. Locked Rotor Amps

  • June 2021
  • Number of views: 5829
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

When an AC motor is initially energized at rated voltage (and frequency), the current drawn is many times rated current until the motor attains full operating speed. Consequences of starting current include short time overheating of stator windings and rotors, undesirable operation of overload protective devices and a sag in the supply voltage.

Consideraciones para los Amperios Inrush vs Rotor Bloqueado

  • June 2021
  • Number of views: 4602
  • Article rating: 1.7
Article

Cuando se energiza inicialmente un motor de CA a su voltaje nominal (y frecuencia), el motor toma varias veces la corriente nominal hasta que alcanza toda la velocidad de operación. Las consecuencias de la corriente de arranque incluyen: Breve sobrecalentamiento de los bobinados del estator y del rotor, disparos no deseados de los dispositivos de protección y caídas de voltaje en el suministro eléctrico.

Vertical Motor Operation and Repair

  • June 2020
  • Number of views: 7006
  • Article rating: 5.0
FREE for Members of EASA
Convention presentation

Vertical motors differ from horizontal motors in numerous ways, yet some view them as “just a horizontal motor turned on end.” The obvious differences are the (usually) thrust bearings, with arrangements varying from single- to three-thrust bearings with different orientations suited for specific load, rpm and applications. Less obvious differences are in the ventilation arrangements, shaft stiffness, degrees of protection and runout tolerances. This recording will cover those topics.

Principles of Medium & Large AC Motors, 1st Edition - IEC

  • February 2020
  • Number of views: 23263
  • Article rating: 5.0
Book

This manual covers horizontal and vertical squirrel-cage induction motors in the 300 to 5,000 horsepower range, low- and medium-voltage. Most of the principles covered apply to other sizes as well. This manual focuses primarily on IEC motors and standards.

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

  • October 2019
  • Number of views: 10571
  • Article rating: 4.7
Webinar recording

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.

Root Cause Failure Analysis, 2nd Edition

  • September 2019
  • Number of views: 12671
  • Article rating: 5.0
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.

Rotor/Armature Core Test Form

  • September 2019
  • Number of views: 3516
  • Article rating: No rating
Form/Worksheet

EASA’s Rotor/Armature Core Test Form provides a step-by-step procedure for calculating the number of turns and cable size required for a loop test.

Induction Motor Speed Control Basics

  • March 2019
  • Number of views: 3622
  • Article rating: No rating
Webinar recording

Induction motors are most often applied to what are essentially constant speed drive applications. However, the use of induction motors in variable speed applications continues to grow, primarily due to technology advances in power electronics. This webinar will review speed control basics for induction machines.
