PROVIDING A MINIMUM DEFECTIVENESS OF INTER-TURN INSULATION AT THE MANUFACTURING STAGE AND DURING THE EXPLOITATION
The reliability of a low-voltage asynchronous electric motor is primarily determined by the reliability of the stator winding insulation. Common reasons for the failure of the insulation system are the unsatisfactory quality of the enameled wires and electrical insulating materials used for imperfection and violation of the technological process of winding and insulating work, and the discrepancy between operating modes. In the vast majority of cases, failures occur due to damage to the inter-turn insulation as the weakest element. This causes the need to study the insulation system resistance to the formation of defects. The results of assessing the stability of the insulation of winding wires to defect formation are obtained, taking into account the features of the operational loads characteristic of frequency-controlled drives with pulse-width modulation of the output voltage and the influence of the inter-turn insulation defectiveness level on its reliability indicators is also studied. The authors have developed the measures to reduce the defectiveness of inter-turn insulation at the manufacturing stage and during operation. This will ensure a minimum level of insulation defects and increase the resource of asynchronous electric motors by reducing the number of failures.
