FAULT DIAGNOSTIC AND MONITORING METHODS OF INDUCTION MOTOR: A REVIEW
P. Bhowmik, S. Pradhan, and M. Prakash. The International Journal of Applied Control, Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IJACEEE)1 (1):
Induction motors are widely used in transportation, mining, petrochemical, manufacturing and in almost every other field dealing with electrical power. These motors are simple, efficient, highly robust and rugged thus offering a very high degree of reliability. But like any other machine, they are vulnerable to faults, which if left unmonitored, might lead to catastrophic failure of the machine in the long run. On-line condition monitoring of the induction motors has been widely used in the detection of faults. This paper delves into the various faults and study of conventional and innovative techniques for induction motor faults with an identification of future research areas.
