Case Study 5500HP, 13,200v, Synchronous Motor: (Part 6) Stator Redesign and Rewind
July 25, 2019
Below is a 2 minute clip of an hour long presentation given by Todd Hatfield during the 2018 RPM Symposium. Part 6 of this 8 part series focuses on the redesign and rewind of the stator for the 5500HP, 13,200v, synchronous motor.
This video will describe:
- The new engineered stator winding design and CAD drawing
- Using a DC welder to heat the coils, allowing them to be more flexible in order to keep them from cracking
- Connecting the leads to match the original 5500HP, 13,200v, synchronous motor
Make sure to read the rest of the series starting with…
- What is an AC Synchronous Motor?
- Part 1 – Problem Identification and Potential Solution
- Part 2 – Evaluating Surplus Motor Option and Initial On-Site Application
- Part 3 – Electrical and Mechanical Redesign Engineering
- Part 4 – Mechanical Design of Shaft and Rotor
- Part 5 – Electrical Design of Rotor
