Keeping it cool: A look at causes of motor overheating

  • March 2015
  • Number of views: 2008
  • Article rating: 5.0

We know that excessive temperature and moisture are the largest contributors to bearing and winding failures. Understanding the source of the increased temperature will help us to correct the problem and improve the machine’s life expectancy.

Interpole strength: Determining correct number of circuits

  • February 2007
  • Number of views: 792
  • Article rating: No rating

A conversation with two EASA members led to a method for determining whether the interpoles are connected with the correct number of circuits. Not only is this method easy, it's a refinement of the interpole polarity test we routinely perform on every repaired DC machine.

Interpole shims: Proper placement prevents arcing

  • November 2006
  • Number of views: 962
  • Article rating: No rating

Have you ever wondered about the purpose of the shims found under the interpoles in most DC machines? Those shims are used by the manufacturer to adjust the interpole strength. If they are lost, left out or mixed up, the result will be a DC motor or generator that arcs - especially when loaded.
