About this Book
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
