Stator Inter-Turn Stress with Electrical Signature Analysis in Variable Frequency Drive Applications
Incorrect settings in a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) application have an impact on the windings of an electric motor. When a drive is not set correctly, or not tuned when not using straight volts/hertz settings, stresses occur between the turns in a winding. In some cases, this will appear as small Partial Discharges (PD), and in others it can be increased leakage between turns. When these conditions occur, they introduce small current discharges that effect the air gap magnetic field of the motor.

Technology Based Crane Monitoring and Diagnostics
Overhead cranes are often a single source cause of downtime in any manufacturing facility, especially when discussing those performing services in a steel mill’s melt shop. Often, these assets do not have redundancy that would allow for one to be taken....

What is 3 Minutes of Motor Testing Worth to You?
A motor distributor in the Netherlands provided a 17 Kilowatt, 400-Volt motor to a local hospital in 2015. The hospital rented a portable crane to install the motor onto the roof of the building. The motor is used to operate a fan that is mounted on the hospital’s roof...
