Advanced Rotorbar Analysis – False Negatives: Dual Cage Rotors

whitelegg pic 2Ernesto J. Wiedenbrug, Ph.D., SM IEEE
Some squirrel-cage motors designed for high start-up torque may get weaker over time, needing longer startup times and may perhaps even trip during line-start – but never show big problems in vibration or MCSA. This paper  explains what gives high startup torque motors their  special capabilities, describes a common failure mode  making it nearly impossible to find the issue using MCSA or  vibration, and diagnostic alternatives for these problems.
