Abstract

There are many limitations to applying on-line spectrum analysis techniques for diagnosis of closed loop inverter-fed induction motors due to variable load or frequency operation, and the masking effect of the current regulator. In this paper, a new automated approach for testing inverter-fed induction machines for airgap eccentricity is proposed. The main concept is to use the inverter to excite the machine with a pulsating field at multiple angular positions to observe the variation of equivalent impedance due to eccentricity, whenever the motor is stopped. It is shown that the increase in the value of the equivalent (leakage) inductance under standstill excitation can be used as an indicator of increasing airgap eccentricity. Standstill testing can provide reliable assessment of eccentricity that is independent of variations in operating conditions, load interferences, or motor type. An experimental study on a 7.5hp induction motor verifies that eccentricity can be detected with high sensitivity and reliability without additional hardware.
