Book Description

Review 'This is a very practical reference book on motor/generator insulation design and repair, and it is sure to become a well-used classic by those who design, maintain, and repair large rotating machines.' (IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, May/June 2004, Vol. 20, No. 3) 'Clearly written and easily understood...this book is a valuable companion to the 1977 Rejda-Neville Industrial Motor Users' Handbook of Insulation for Rewids...' (Electrical Apparatus, March 2004) Read more From the Back Cover A single comprehensive resource for the design, application, testing, and maintenance of rotating machines Filling a long-standing gap in the field, Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines covers, in one useful volume, all aspects of the design, deterioration, testing, and repair of the electrical insulation used in motors and generators. Lucidly written by leading experts, this authoritative reference provides both historical background important to understanding machine insulation design and the most up-to-date information on new machines and how to select insulation systems for them. Coverage includes such key topics as: Types of rotating machines, windings, and rotor and stator winding construction Evaluating insulation materials and systems Stator winding and rotor winding insulation systems in current use Failure mechanisms and repair Testing and monitoring Maintenance strategies Detailing over 30 different rotor and stator winding failure processes and reviewing almost 25 different tests and monitors used to assess winding insulation condition, Electrical Insulation for Rotating Machines will help machine users avoid unnecessary machine failures, reduce maintenance costs, and inspire greater confidence in the design of future machines.
