Detection of stator winding fault in induction motor using instantaneous power signature analysis


Abstract: Stator interturn faults are one of the most common faults occurring in induction motors. Early detection of interturn short circuit is important to reduce repair costs. Axial leakage monitoring, zero-sequence components, negative sequence current, and motor current signature analysis have been used for fault detection in early states. In the paper, the instantaneous power signature analysis technique is used to detect these faults, and experimental results for healthy and faulty motors are shown and discussed.
