The industry is relying on electric prime movers for driving process equipment participating in production line ups. It is therefore invariably that the installation of numerous electric motor types is required. This continuous process of technical development provides the availability of highly diversified types of electric motors.
As such, an utmost care is required in selecting the most appropriate motor type considering specific technical factors for each application, so that the motor would provide desired and optimum performance. The motor characteristics vary widely with the nature of their industrial application and duty-cycle they are expected to perform continuously:
Occurrence of these specific motor conditions for short/long duration or even transiently usually results in overheating of the motor along with one or several of the other effects. All industrial motors encounter few or several of these abnormalities during the course of their service lives. Consideration of listed abnormal conditions together with the AE-GROUP at the design stage greatly helps to reduce the effects of abnormal conditions to maintain a consistent performance.
