Electric Motors Voltage and Balance

When we plan to install an electric motor for our application,the one of  important parameter that we MUST verify is about VOLTAGE.Ensure the voltage is balance between phase to phase.

Motor voltages should be kept as close to the nameplate value as possible, with a maximum deviation of 5 %. Normally motors are designed to operate within 10% of nameplate voltage.

What happen if your voltage variations is large than nameplate voltage?The answer is if  voltage variations larger than motor nameplate voltage,it’s can have several damage effects to the motor on torque, slip, current, efficiency,power factor, temperature, and service life. read more
