Technical article: eccentricities faults in a rotating machine analysed under Flux downloadweblink

CedratFri, 12 Sep 2014

In the present energy efficiency context of electrical machines, diagnosis of rotating machines is increasingly studied. Designers seek to include the on-line, non-invasive diagnosis and typical signatures of the rotating machine’s faults in the stator winding currents, torque, leakage magnetic field, and so on. Among the rotating machine’s faults, seven to 10 per cent are located in the rotor and some of these faults are eccentricities. These faults generate electromagnetic torque ...
