Types Of Motor Enclosures

The main purpose of motor enclosure is to provides protection from environment  impacts such as rain,corrosive,rusty and many more in which motor installed.

This protection can make motor more life span and can running in suitable condition.It also provide a types of cooling system for a motor depend on their types of enclosure.

Before we select a motor enclosures for our application,please review about location,types of environment impact and ambient temperature to avoid any mistaken. read more

Motor loads calculation

On my last post,i discussed about why we need to determine motor loads and efficiency.So for this post i want to share how to get the motor load value using simple calculation electrical formula.

Before we go further,i want to explain about Power.What is meaning of Power?Of course this term is significant with our discussion topic.Power is rated of energy in electrical circuit.

It is combination from Amperage and Voltage value.Basic formula for Power is P (watt) =I(ampere)  x V (volt).Power also measured in Horsepower (hp) unit.For common conversion from electrical Horsepower to Watt is 1hp = 746 watt. read more

Determining electric motor load and efficiency

As we known,the electric motor is the one of important equipment to drive the operation smoothly from beginning to end of product.

Electricity cost normally around 60% came from electric motor running.It become more worth if installed motors are oversized,low efficiency,under design,poor maintenance or mismatched.

So to know the actual motor performance, we need to determine electric motor load and their efficiency to eliminated all problems that can cause the high electricity cost and breakdown.

We need to collected several important data from our electric motor to made comparison and analysis about load and efficiency.

The causes of electrical motor insulation failures

Basically electrical motor have a phase to phase winding coil around armature to created a magnetic field.To avoid shortage between phase to phase winding,the insulation systems needed.

It consists of the groundwall insulation and turn to turn insulation. Typically for induction motor insulation is the slot of paper to protect between cooper and ground surface.For phase to phase insulation normally used sheet of insulation paper laid between phase. read more

Measuaring motor insulation using HI POT tester

When we need to evaluate the motor condition,HI-POT tester or High Potential tester is the common equipment are used.As we know,a multimeter or ohm meter reading only can determine if a motor winding is open or shorted but cannot checked winding insulation condition if shorted with ground or phase.

The main purpose of the Hi Pot tester is to verify the quality and integrity of the electric motor insulation materials used on the armature or stator and also safe to using it without any defect.

Sometime we not take a serious attention or not know about it to checked winding insulation.This step is important to ensure motor can running in good condition without any breakdown. read more

Direct Current (D.C) motor field windings

D.C motor is the one of common application for industrial.It have several advantage compare with A.C motor.Dc motors applied for the momentarily deliver rated around three or more times from their torque.

It also include with dynamic braking function  or regenerative braking to obtained with dc motors for quick stops application.This function can avoid for reducing the size of a mechanical brake.

This time i want share information about D.C. motors field winding.It normally are divided into three classes for our application and need to selected to match for our operation functional. read more

method for braking electric motor

On my last post, I’m already explained about braking system for electric motor.It about a introduction for braking system for electric motor.

This time i want share some information about two common method that used around the world for braking electric motor for any application,equipment or machinery system.

For this two method for braking electric motor system are d.c injection and plugging is suitable application to stop a drive efficiently depend on our system and design. read more
