Abstract

Double squirrel cage rotor design is employed in induction motor applications that require high starting torque and high efficiency operation. The outer cage of double cage rotors is vulnerable to fatigue failure since it must withstand the large thermal/mechanical stresses experienced during a loaded startup due to the high starting current and long acceleration time. However, there are only a few publications that investigate broken bar detection for double cage induction motors. In this paper, the detectability of broken outer cage bars in double cage motors for the most commonly used rotor bar test methods is evaluated. A finite element and experimental study show that the sensitivity of on-line MCSA is significantly decreased, whereas that of off-line standstill tests is not influenced for broken outer cage bars. This suggests that one should be aware of the insensitivity of MCSA for double cage rotors, and there is a need for development of new on-line monitoring methods.
