Abstract

Quality assurance testing of mass-produced electrical appliances is critical for the reputation of the manufacturer since defective units will have a negative impact on safety, reliability, efficiency, and performance of the end product. It has been observed at a brushless DC compressor motor manufacturing facility that improper magnetization of the rotor permanent magnet is one of the leading causes of motor defects. A new technique for post-manufacturing assessment the magnetization quality of concentrated winding brushless DC compressor motors for quality assurance, is proposed in this paper. The new method evaluates the data acquired during the test runs performed after motor assembly to observe anomalies in the zero crossing pattern of the back-emf voltages for screening motor units with defective magnetization. An experimental study on healthy and defective 250W brushless DC compressor motor units shows that the proposed technique provides sensitive detection of magnetization defects that existing tests were not capable of finding. The proposed algorithm does not require additional hardware for implementation since it can be added to the existing test run inverter of the quality assurance system as a software algorithm.
