Abstract

This paper presents fault detection techniques, especially the motor current signature analysis (MCSA) which consists of the phase current measurement of the electrical motor’s stator and/or rotor. The motor current signature analysis consists in determining the frequency spectrum (FFT) of the stator current signal and evaluating the relative amplitude of the current harmonics. Sideband frequencies appear in the frequency spectrum of the current, corresponding to each fault. The broken bar is a frequent fault in induction motors with squirrel-cage rotor. It is presented the equivalent circuit for induction motors and the equivalence between the squirrel-cage rotor and the rotor windings. It is also presented an equivalent circuit model for induction motors with squirrel cage rotor, and based on this a Simulink model was developed. It is shown how a broken rotor bar influences the magnetic field around the rotor and through this the stator current. This modification is highlighted through the developed model.
