White paper: simulation and fault detection in PMSM under dynamic conditions download

CedratThu, 20 Nov 2014

As Cedrat explains in this paper, the permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is becoming popular in high-performance applications as compared with other types of AC motors. A short circuit between turns is the most critical fault in a machine; it is quite difficult to detect and almost impossible to remove. There are a number of techniques used to detect turn-to-turn faults.

Technical article: Mike Might Know — sensor cables download

Sherborne SensorsTue, 18 Nov 2014

In order to maximise the performance of sensors, attention should be paid to the selection of the humble cable that connects the sensor with its instrumentation. As this article in the ‘Mike Might Know’ series from Sherborne Sensors explains, sensors — particularly those based upon strain gauges — have very low levels of output often in the micro-volt region. Noise pick-up must be minimised to ensure accurate results.
