Reliable stator core testing on rotating machines
Fabian Öttl, our product manager for rotating machines testing, demonstrates in a new video how easily essential stator core measurements are performed with our Stator Core Measurement Upgrade Option.
This innovative measurement solution is used together with our CPC 100 multi-functional electrical testing device to perform time-saving and highly reliable electromagnetic imperfection testing (also known as a stray flux measurement) on the stator core of rotating electrical machines, including hydro generators, turbo generators and industrial motors.
This off-line test is performed during maintenance outages to detect stator core interlamination faults that can cause overheating and damage in rotating machines during operation. Regular measurements are recommended to evaluate the insulation integrity between stator core layers over time to prevent failure.
