AA SPEC 538011 MEDIUM VOLTAGE INDUCTION MOTORS VERSION 1 14 JANUARY 2013 COPYRIGHT
This specification details the requirements for fixed speed, three-phase, alternating-current, air or water cooled squirrel cage and wound rotor (slip ring) induction motors for voltages from 3 300 to 13 800 V between lines and at a frequency of 50 Hz or 60 Hz. This specification does not cover synchronous motors or special motors for variable speed drives.
TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS TO BE SPECIFIED BY THE ENGINEER
The following information shall be specified in all tenders, contracts or orders: a) Title, reference number and issue number of this specification. b) The completed data sheet. (Contractors supplying motors to this specification are to ensure that they receive completed data sheets indicating the Engineers requirements)
DEFINITIONS & ABBREVIATIONS
For the purposes of this specification the following definitions shall apply: ETD : Embedded Temperature Detector ECP : End Corona Protection: The final layer applied to the stator coil in the vicinity of the slot exits which is designed to make electrical contact with the OCP and has a voltage dependent resistivity so that electrical stress concentration on the surface of the coil is relieved to prevent potentially dangerous partial discharge in service. The length of the ECP is dependent on the voltage, altitude and/or the contractor's design standards. Sometimes referred to as stress grading IEC : International Electrotechnical Commission NEMA : National Electrical Manufacturers Association OCP : Slot Corona Protection / Corona Shield: The conductive final layer which constitutes the surface of the stator coil in the slot portion and extending approximately to the end of the press fingers, which is designed to make electrical contact with the core at regular positions along the slot and which has a resistivity that is: a. Independent of voltage stress, b. Low enough that the surface of the coil is maintained at a voltage sufficiently close to earth potential so as to prevent potentially dangerous partial discharge at the same location will occur between the coil surface and core, b) High enough that it will not result in increased core losses due to short circuiting of the core lamination plates.
