The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency

Publication date: 
December 2003

The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency: EASA/AEMT Rewind Study and Good Practice Guide illustrates that when performed properly, electric motor repair/rewind does not degrade efficiency! Nor is motor efficiency reduced through multiple repairs/rewinds.

Based on a joint study by EASA and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT) of the United Kingdom, this publication concludes that using best repair/rewind practices maintains motor efficiency. Besides an Executive Summary, the report provides complete test data, extensive background information about test procedures and methodology, information about best practice repair/rewind procedures, resources for further reading, and an entire chapter on repair/replace considerations.
