Event Details

Anything that gets moved or heated up tends to have a limited life, and rotating electrical machines are subject to both those influences.  The essentials for ensuring a long life of rotating electrical machines against those influences are covered in EEMUA Publication 227 and we have to start by getting the basics right.  But in addition, machines may be subject to electrical disturbances such as line surges and usage which may be within ratings but outside the originally envisaged envelope of use, such as frequent stops and starts rather than more continuous running.

We have to recognise that life extension is about more than just keeping machines running unchanged in an unchanged environment. How do we compensate for these effects in the maintenance regime, recognise when we have a problem and deal with it appropriately by changing the maintenance regime, repair or replace?  We attempt to answer some of those questions which are becoming ever more important against the currently prevailing trend of supply chain issues.

Free Attendance for EEMUA Members and Associates
