How to ensure effective motor repair and rewind

Speak the same language as your service center when it comes to setting performance expectations

The Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA) has published two documents to help users and service providers ensure that motor repairs performed reflect good practices that maintain or improve a machine's energy efficiency and reliability: ANSI/EASA Standard AR100-2015: Recommended Practice for the Repair of Rotating Electrical Apparatus and the "Good Practice Guide" of the 2003 study The Effect of Repair/Rewinding on Motor Efficiency, by EASA and the Association of Electrical and Mechanical Trades (AEMT). These documents serve as tools by which service centers and end users can speak the same language when it comes to level-setting service and performance expectations on motor repair and rewind.

Also, a little more than a year ago, EASA launched its electric motor repair accreditation program, based on AR100 and the "Good Practice Guide." The program benefits both end-users and service providers by ensuring that electric motor repairs conform to the good practices identified in the aforementioned documents."

Electric motor efficiency can be maintained during repair and rewind by following defined good practices. This article builds on my previous discussion of PM and PdM for three-phase squirrel-cage motors ("PM and PdM for electric motors") by outlining some of the expectations and good practices for repairs of these types of motors.
