Summary and Info
A single comprehensive resource for the design, application, testing, and maintenance of rotating machines Filling a long-standing gap in the field, Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines covers, in one useful volume, all aspects of the design, deterioration, testing, and repair of the electrical insulation used in motors and generators. Lucidly written by leading experts, this authoritative reference provides both historical background important to understanding machine insulation design and the most up-to-date information on new machines and how to select insulation systems for them. Coverage includes such key topics as: Types of rotating machines, windings, and rotor and stator winding construction Evaluating insulation materials and systems Stator winding and rotor winding insulation systems in current use Failure mechanisms and repair Testing and monitoring Maintenance strategies Detailing over 30 different rotor and stator winding failure processes and reviewing almost 25 different tests and monitors used to assess winding insulation condition, Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines will help machine users avoid unnecessary machine failures, reduce maintenance costs, and inspire greater confidence in the design of future machines.Content: Chapter 1 Rotating Machine Insulation Systems (pages 1–41): Chapter 2 Evaluating Insulation Materials and Systems (pages 43–71): Chapter 3 Historical Development of Insulation Materials and Systems (pages 73–94): Chapter 4 Stator Winding Insulation Systems in Current Use (pages 95–111): Chapter 5 Rotor Winding Insulation Systems (pages 113–118): Chapter 6 Core Laminations and Their Insulation (pages 119–127): Chapter 7 General Principles of Winding Failure, Repair, and Rewinding (pages 129–136): Chapter 8 Stator Failure Mechanisms and Repair (pages 137–180): Chapter 9 Rotor Winding Failure Mechanisms and Repair (pages 181–209): Chapter 10 Core Lamination Insulation Failure and Repair (pages 211–225): Chapter 11 General Principles of Testing and Monitoring (pages 227–233): Chapter 12 Off?Line Rotor and Stator Winding Tests (pages 235–283): Chapter 13 In?Service Monitoring of Stator and Rotor Windings (pages 285–320): Chapter 14 Core Testing (pages 321–332): Chapter 15 Acceptance and Site Testing of New Windings (pages 333–350): Chapter 16 Maintenance Strategies (pages 351–364):
