This paper reports and discusses qualification and type test procedures for random wound motors as specified in IEC Technical Specification 60034-18-41. Since laboratory tests dealing with off-line partial discharges measurements followed by life tests showed that motors qualified as good can fail in very short times, an extensive investigation on the causes of such discrepancy and, in particular, on the differences existing between the stresses applied during off-line tests and in service is described. In addition, the results of partial discharge measurements performed on crossed pairs are presented, highlighting how the differences in the applied voltage waveform can influence the Repetitive Partial Discharge Inception Voltage. Suggestions to improve the off-line test procedure and related equipment are eventually discussed.

Abstract

This paper reports and discusses qualification and type test procedures for random wound motors as specified in IEC Technical Specification 60034-18-41. Since laboratory tests dealing with off-line partial discharges measurements followed by life tests showed that motors qualified as good can fail in very short times, an extensive investigation on the causes of such discrepancy and, in particular, on the differences existing between the stresses applied during off-line tests and in service is described. In addition, the results of partial discharge measurements performed on crossed pairs are presented, highlighting how the differences in the applied voltage waveform can influence the Repetitive Partial Discharge Inception Voltage. Suggestions to improve the off-line test procedure and related equipment are eventually discussed.
