Please see the respective product catalog for more specific details about bearings. load of the motor and motor size.5.3 Bearings Motors are normally fitted with single row deep groove ball bearings. as the number of operating hours achieved or exceeded by 90 per cent of identical bearings in a large test series under certain specific conditions. the method of mounting and direction and magnitude of the axial force must be specified. This version is available on request. When ordering a motor with angular-contact bearings. Bearing life The normal life L10 of a bearing is defined. taking into account the most common types of application. higher radial forces can be handled. angular-contact ball bearings should be used. Roller bearings are especially suitable for belt drive applications. ABB uses 63 series bearings which are of robust design for longer life and higher loadability. 62 series bearings have lower noise levels. If the bearing in the D-end of the motor is replaced with a roller bearing NU. higher maximum speeds. and lower losses. 50 per cent of the bearings achieve at least five times this figure. according to ISO.

the brushes and slip-rings also add noise. with maximum permitted levels. we make noise reduction a major design criterion in the development of our motors.1 Noise reduction Noise is subject to strict regulations today. Components that raise noise level 85 . At high speeds and high outputs.6 Noise 6. Accordingly.2 Noise components The principal noise components in a motor are the fan and the magnetic circuit. In slip-ring motors. 6. the noise of the fan dominates. the magnetic circuit dominates. At low speeds.

and by magnetic noise vibrating through the motor frame. airborne noise can be reduced by fitting a silencer.2.3. the noise level is of secondary importance.2 Magnetic noise ABB Motors’ new electrical design reduces magnetic noise. and costs even less. foundation. Airborne noise caused by the fan is propagated by air. the fan must be large enough to generate sufficient air flow to ensure adequate cooling of the motor. 6. Similarly. can be used. 86 . The noise level of larger motors can be reduced by fitting a silencer. A totally enclosed version with separate cooling air supply and exhaust usually has the same noise level as a water cooled version. an unidirectional fan which rotates in one direction only and so generates less noise.1 Airborne noise Depending on the application.1 Fan Fan noise can be reduced by an optimized fan design.3 Airborne and structure borne noise Noise can be propagated in two ways. And as larger motors are often installed in separate rooms. Structure borne noise is caused by the bearings. 6. However.2. 6. ABB can advise you on the best solution for your specific application. choosing an air-water cooled version has a far lower noise level at high outputs and is far cheaper than a totally enclosed air-air cooled version. For instance. walls and any pipework.6 Noise 6. increasing the overall efficiency of the motor enables the fan diameter to be reduced. a unidirectional fan or by installing a water cooled motor. On larger 2 pole motors.

5 (Pa) minimum detectable noise P = measured pressure (Pa) 87 .4 Sound pressure level and sound power level Sound is pressure waves sent out by an object through the medium (usually air) in which it is immersed.3 Low noise motors Most manufacturers offer low noise versions of large motors and motors for high speeds.6 Noise 6. 6. However to achieve low noise. In certain cases. and so increase the cost. and the human pain threshold is 1:10. The sound pressure is measured in dB during a noise test. The cost of a low noise motor should therefore be weighed against the cost of other noise reducing measures that can be applied to the plant. a logarithmic scale is employed where: sound pressure level Lp = 10 log (P/P0)2 dB P0 = 2* 10 . 6. however. worsen the noise problem. the motor design is modified in ways which may impair cooling. The difference between the sound pressure detectable by the human ear.000. a larger motor may be necessary to deliver the required output. As the difference in pressure is so great and we experience a 10 dB difference as a doubling of the sound level.3.2 Structure borne noise An effective method of eliminating structure borne noise is to mount accurately dimensioned vibration dampers. Choosing vibration dampers arbitrarily.000. could.3.

6.5 Weighting filters Amplifiers and various filters are used when measuring the composite sound. Information on sound pressure level is meaningful only if the distance from the sound source is stated. (B). a tolerance of 3 dB (A) is applicable for the average sound pressure level. The dB figures measured in this way have (A). As the noise level varies in different directions due to the influence of the sources. 80 dB(A) at a distance of one meter from a point sound source corresponds to 70 dB(A) at three meters. The filters pass the entire frequency range. to determine the sound power level (Lw). acc to DIN). Measurement is also done with a 88 . 6.4 Sound pressure level and sound power level The sound pressure is measured in a test room to eliminate reflected noise and external sources. A microphone is variously placed 1 meter from the motor to measure sound from different directions. 70.6 Octave bands The mean sound pressure level is measured with a broad band filter covering the entire frequency band.and 100-phon curves for pure tones. This corresponds most closely with the perception of the ear. Normally only the dB (A) figure is given. or (C) added after them. The formula for this is: Lw = Lp + Ls (Ls is calculated from the measuring surface. The measured sound level (Lp) can be converted into power radiated from the sound source.6 Noise 6. The filter characteristics correspond to stylized 40-. For example. depending on which filter is used. but attenuate or amplify certain parts of it.

NR curve numbers signify the degree of noise. The measured dB figures for all octave bands. The table below illustrates the use of noise rating. known as NR curves. The frequency range is usually referred to by the mid-frequency of the band. A system of noise rating curves. it has proven practical to divide up the frequency range into octave bands with a ratio of 1:2 between the band limit frequencies. the number is equal to the sound pressure level in dB. are generally shown in the form of an octave band diagram. Octave band analysis To get an idea of the character of the composite sound. has been developed under ISO to express the subjective degree of disturbance of different noises. These curves are intended to be used when assessing the risk of damage to hearing.6 Noise 6. For the octave band with a mid-frequency of 1. as the perception of the human ear is dependent on the octave band. The NR curve that touches the noise curve of the motor in question determines the motor’s noise rating. the octave band levels.000 Hz. It shows how long a person can remain in a noisy environment without suffering permanent hearing damage. NR 85 90 95 105 120 Time per day > 5 hours = 5 hours = 2 hours < 20 minutes < 5 minutes 89 .6 Octave bands narrow band filter to define the noise level per octave band (frequency band). Similar systems are also available.

the motor noise produced in certain octave bands can change considerably. depending on the switching frequency of the converter.7 Converter duty At converter duty. as ABB Direct Torque Control converters do not have a fixed switching frequency. 90 . The converter does not produce a sinusoidal voltage. the noise level is much lower than would be the case if a fixed switching frequency converter were used with the same motor.6 Noise 6. However.

and so on. The table (position) illustrates the sound pressure level when several sources of sound are present. 91 . For example. adding together four increases it by 6 dB. Adding together two such sources increases the total level by 3 dB. Diagram B shows how the sound level pressure changes when the sound sources have different pressure levels. the lower level contributes so little to the total sound pressure level it may be disregarded.8 Additional sound sources 6. An easier way of adding or subtracting sound sources is to use the diagrams below. However.6 Noise 6. When the difference between the two sound pressure levels is greater than 10 dB.1 Perception of difference in sound level A difference of 1 dB in sound level is barely detectable.8. whereas a 10 dB difference is perceived as a doubling or halving of the sound level. diagram A shows that the sound pressure level will be 3 dB higher if the sound level of two identical sources are added together. they must be converted into absolute numbers. Adding two different levels. Adding several equal sound sources. before logarithmic values can be added or subtracted.

However.solves both these problems. 121 . A variable speed drive motor can be started softly with low starting current. and the speed can be controlled and adjusted to suit the application demand without steps over a wide range. Manufacturers are increasingly recognizing the tremendous advantages VSD delivers. Today VSDs account for about 10 per cent of motor drives and this is expected to rise to 25 per cent in the year 2005. Variable speed drives 10. s Lower maintenance s Higher production quality and greater productivity. reliability and efficiency. starting performance and smooth speed control over a wide range.

10. the dc link acts as a dc-voltage network and the output is a voltage pulse. the rectifier converts the input line power which has a nominally fixed voltage and frequency to fixed voltage dc power. This fixed voltage dc power is then filtered to reduce the ripple voltage resulting from the rectification of the ac line. In a voltage-source converter (VSC). or voltage source converters. Cyclo-converters are used in high power applications (MW range) and at low frequencies. or voltage pulse sequence.3 Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) ABB variable speed drives use Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) with variable swiching frequency voltage source converters as these best meet the majority of requirements. depending on the solution employed.2 Converters Converters are power electronic devices which convert input AC power at fixed voltage and frequency into output electric power with variable voltage and frequency.10. Variable speed drives 10. In a PWM drive.2. Direct or indirect converters are used.2.1 Direct converters Direct converters such as cyclo-converters and matrix converters change the input directly to output with no intermediate links.2 Indirect converters Indirect converters are either current source. 10. In a current-source converter (CSC). the intermediate link acts as a dccurrent source and the output consists of controlled current pulses at continuously variable frequency which are fed to different phases of the three-phase system. The inverter then changes the fixed voltage dc power to ac output power with adjustable voltage and frequency. 122 . 10. This enables stepless speed control of the motor.

For general applications. Standard aluminum and cast iron motors These guidelines present the maximum continuous load torque of a motor as a function of frequency (speed) to give the same temperature rise as with rated sinusoidal voltage supply at nominal frequency and full rated load. The tables below offer guidelines for motor selection. EEx d.5 Loadability (torque) Both theoretical calculations and laboratory tests show that the continuous maximum load (torque) of a converter driven motor is mainly dependent on the modulation pattern and switching frequency of the converter.

frequency converter application may require a special rotor design in frame sizes 355 and 400. Torque is reduced due to extra heating from harmonics and a decrease in cooling according to frequency range. Filters also reduce electromagnetic noise. Liquid cooling (water cooled motors) is another very effective cooling method. 126 . The full power of the drive and the speed range must be taken into account when dimensioning filters (additional reactances). However they do limit the maximum torque of the motor. In very demanding cases.5 Loadability (torque) Slip ring motors are not recommended for converter applications. s Filtering Filtering the converter output voltage reduces the harmonic content of the motor voltage and current and so causes less additional losses in the motor. Please note that in critical conditions. Variable speed drives 10. s Special rotor design A motor with a rotor cage and rotor bars specifically designed for converter drive performs better in a converter drive but less well in normal network application. Loadability can therefore be improved by more effective cooling. filtering the converter output voltage and by special rotor design s More effective cooling More effective cooling is achieved by mounting a separate constant speed cooling fan. will give an improved cooling effect over the entire speed range. Selecting a fan motor speed and fan design to deliver a higher cooling effect than that of the standard motor at nominal speed. the bearing end shields must also be cooled. This minimizes the need for derating. EMC and voltage peak problems. which is especially beneficial at low speeds.10.

If the motor speed further increases. the lubrication should also be upgraded. determines the permissible operating speed for the particular bearing. However. Fan noise is typically ‘white noise’. the noise level will also be higher. the limit is set by the operating temperature with respect to the lubricant and bearing component. Very accurate lubrication with small quantities also reduces the bearing friction and heat generation. The maximum speed can be increased by using high speed greases or oil lubrication. in turn. Variable speed drives 10. which. Changing the bearings enables higher speeds. i. The noise level increase can be calculated approximately using the following formula: ∆ Lsp = 60 x log n2 n1 dB (A) where ∆ Lsp = increase of the sound pressure level when the speed is changed from n1 to n2.3 Lubrication The sheer strength of the lubricant is determined by its base oil viscosity and thickener.and 4-pole motors.

A separate constant speed fan can be used to increase cooling capacity and motor loadability at low speeds.1 Lubrication At very low speeds.12.10 Critical speeds The first critical speed of a standard motor must never be exceeded. All other parts mounted on the motor shaft. non-rubbing labyrinth seals should be used. 10. shorter relubrication intervals or special grease (Extreme Pressure (EP) grease or high temperature lubricant) should be used.11 Shaft seals All rubbing shaft seals (V-rings. If this is below the proposed high speed operation. and a safety margin of 25 per cent allowed. The relubrication interval should be halved for each 15° C increase in the bearing temperature above + 70° C. the motor’s ventilation fan loses its cooling capacity. a small reduction in loadability is still necessary at very low speeds. 10.2 Cooling capacity The air flow and cooling capacity depends on the fan speed.12 Low speed operation 10. 10.12.
