2). In addition, if too many shorted turns occur, then much more excitation current will be needed to create the magnetic field for the required output. Although shorted rotor turns in themselves may not be hazardous to the machine, if the number of shorts are increasing over time, then it may be an indicator that there is a greater risk that a rotor ground fault may occur. Wound induction motor rotors experience much the same thermal and mechanical environment as synchronous machine rotors. However, instead of a constant DC current, this type of motor rotor winding sees an initial 50/60 Hz inrush current during motor starting, followed by a gradual reduction in current and current frequency as the motor comes up to speed.

The weight of the copper conductors will tend to compress and/or distort any insulation. Thus, the rotor winding insulation must have very high compression strength and be supported to prevent distortion. An additional mechanical (or more properly thermomechanical) stress occurs whenever the machine is turned on and off. When the rotor winding is excited, the current through the conductors causes the copper temperature to rise, and the copper will experience axial growth due to the thermal coefficient of expansion.

8) where ln is the natural logarithm. This shows that the radius is critical to the maximum electric field. ” In the early days of high-voltage rotating machines, the electric field just outside of the slot was made more uniform by embedding concentric floating metal foils of specific lengths within the volume of the groundwall, in the area where the semiconductive coating ends. 14]. However, when a unique material called silicon carbide became available, it superceded the bushing approach. Silicon carbide is a special material that has an interesting property: as the electric stress increases in this material, its resistance decreases.
