  3. 3. Introduction By condition monitoring we mean continuous evaluation of the health of plant and equipment throughout its serviceable life. Condition monitoring and protection are closely related functions. The approach to the implementation of each is, however, quite different. Condition monitoring can, in many cases, be extended to provide primary protection, but its real function must always be to attempt to recognise the development of faults at an early stage. 11-05-2014 3SIBABRATA PRADHAN
  4. 4. WHAT AND WHEN TO MONITOR Larger electrical drives, which support generating, process or production plant if a high margin of spare capacity exists, will benefit from monitoring, although perhaps not continuous monitoring. We can include induced and forced-draught boiler fan drives, boiler water feed pump drives, and cooling water pump drives in power stations in this category. It must be kept in mind, however, that successful monitoring can allow a big reduction in the requirement for on-site spare capacity. 11-05-2014 4SIBABRATA PRADHAN
  5. 5. WHAT AND WHEN TO MONITOR The parameters to be monitored are essentially those that will provide the operator and maintainer with sufficient details to make informed decisions on operation and maintenance scheduling, but which ensure security of plant operation. Traditionally quantities, such as line currents and voltages, coolant temperatures, and bearing vibration levels, have been measured and will continue to be used. Other specialist methods, involving the accurate measurement of rotational speed, or the sensing of leakage fluxes, are being developed in order to monitor a variety of fault conditions. 11-05-2014 5SIBABRATA PRADHAN
  6. 6. WHEN TO MONITOR One should monitor when it is cost-effective to do so, or when there are over- riding safety considerations to be observed. The assessment of cost-effectiveness can be a relatively complex matter, but in general terms monitoring is worthwhile when the net annual savings are increased by its use. 11-05-2014 6SIBABRATA PRADHAN
  8. 8. ROOT CAUSES AND FAILURE MODES Root causes:  Defective design or manufacture  Defective material or component Defective installation Defective maintenance or operation Ambient conditions Overspeed Overload Component failure Excessive temperature Winding over temperature Bearing over temperature. 11-05-2014 8SIBABRATA PRADHAN
  9. 9. FAILURE MODES Failure modes: oElectrical: Core insulation failure Stator winding insulation failure Rotor winding insulation failure Brush gear failure Slip ring failure Commutator failure Electrical trip ◦ Mechanical: Bearing failure Rotor mechanical integrity failure Stator mechanical integrity failure. 11-05-2014 9SIBABRATA PRADHAN
  10. 10. Stator winding insulation Stator winding insulation is affected by all of the stresses: thermal, electrical, environmental and mechanical; however, the extent to which these stresses in normal operation will cause problems in the short- or long-term will depend on factors such as the operating mode and type of ambient cooling conditions. Deterioration may be like delamination and voids, slot discharge etc. The principal stresses of concern on rotor windings are thermal and mechanical. It may be induction motor rotor faults, turbine generator rotor winding faults, rotor winding faults in dc machine. 11-05-2014 10SIBABRATA PRADHAN

  14. 14. Vibration Measurement Used for monitoring of components of Gear boxes, Shaft couplings Bearing etc. Methods:  Displacement Transducer (< 100Hz)  Velocity Transducer (100-1000Hz)  Acceleration Transducer (> 1000 Hz) Displacement Transducer: 11-05-2014 14SHYAM KR. SINGH
  15. 15. Velocity Transducer E = Blv where, ov is the velocity of magnet in axial direction oE is induced emf which is the measure of vibration. 11-05-2014 15SHYAM KR. SINGH
  16. 16. Acceleration Transducer When subjected to vibration mass held against piezoelectric material exerts a force upon it which is proportional to the acceleration which produces electric voltage proportionally. 11-05-2014 16SHYAM KR. SINGH
  17. 17. Electrical & Magnetic measurement Electrical Quantities like (currents , voltages) are measured by CT s, PT s . Magnetic Quantities like (flux) are measured by Hall Sensors. When current flows through the hall sensor in direction perpendicular to applied magnetic field then direction of motion of electron is in direction mutually perpendicular to both axes. V=KIB/nq. where, K/nq is hall constant of material. 11-05-2014 17SHYAM KR. SINGH
  18. 18. Chemical Monitoring The insulating materials used in electrical machines are complex organic materials when degraded by heat or electrical action, produce a very large number of chemical products in the gas, liquid and solid states. Methods Of Chemical Monitoring: Particulate Detection (Using Core Monitor) 11-05-2014 18SHYAM KR. SINGH
  19. 19. Chemical Monitoring Infrared Ananlysis A beam of light is focused through a film of used oil and the wavelengths are then compared to light transmitted through new oil of the same type. The differences in readings provide information with respect to the degradation of the used oil Image Processing The image processing and computer vision system reveals more information in the form of quantitative data not revealed by the human eye. This technique is used to collect quantitative information from wear particle images 11-05-2014 19SHYAM KR. SINGH

  21. 21. Vibration monitoring The principal sources of vibration in electrical machines are:  The response of the stator core to the attractive force developed magnetically between rotor and stator  The dynamic behavior of the rotor in the bearings as the machines rotates The response of the shaft bearings, supported by the machine structure and foundations, to vibration transmitted from the rotor The response of the stator end windings to the electromagnetic forces on the conductors. 11-05-2014 21ROHIT KAUSHIK
  22. 22. Frequency responses of the machine elements Stator response The forces acting on the stator core are the result of the interaction between the air gap flux wave and the currents flowing in the windings embedded in the stator slots. The forces acting on the end winding are due to the interaction between the end leakage flux and the winding currents. It is apparent, therefore, that the precise nature of the applied force waves will be a function of the form of the current distribution, and the geometry of the air gap and end regions. The simplest method of calculating the flux wave form is to multiply the magnetomotive force (MMF) distribution because of winding currents, by the permeance of the air gap. 11-05-2014 22ROHIT KAUSHIK
  23. 23. Frequency responses of the machine elements Transverse forces are due to asymmetries in the machine, while torsion is primarily due to the driving torque; however, both may be affected by electrical or mechanical faults in the machine itself or electrical or mechanical system disturbances outside the machine. There will also be a coupling between torsional and transverse effects due to the transfer function or stiffness between these axes of the machine, so torsional effects, like current faults in rotor and stator windings, can cause transverse effects like vibrations, and vice versa. Rotor response We now consider the motion of a rotor in response to: Transverse force excitation Torsional torque excitation 11-05-2014 ROHIT KAUSHIK 23
  24. 24. Frequency responses of the machine elements Bearing response Rotor vibration force is transmitted to the stator via the air gap magnetic field and the bearings in parallel. It is therefore important to consider the response of the bearings to that vibration force so that its effect is not confused with vibrations generated by faults within the bearings themselves. 11-05-2014 24ROHIT KAUSHIK
  25. 25. Monitoring techniques Overall level monitoring This simple form of monitoring is the most commonly used technique but its efficiency is limited. The measurement taken is simply the rms value of the vibration level on the stator side of the machine over a selected bandwidth. The usual bandwidth is 0.01–1 kHz or 0.01–10 kHz 11-05-2014 25ROHIT KAUSHIK
  26. 26. Monitoring techniques 11-05-2014 26ROHIT KAUSHIK
  27. 27. Monitoring techniques Shock pulse monitoring The shock pulse method is used exclusively for rolling element bearings ,which deteriorate at the moving surfaces, developing small pits or imperfections. The interaction between such surfaces generates mechanical stress wave or shock pulses, in the bearing material, propagating into the structure of the machine. These shock pulses are at ultrasonic frequencies and can be detected by piezoelectric transducers with a resonant frequency characteristic tuned to the expected frequency of the pulses, around 32 kHz. The condition of the bearing is assessed by defining a quantity known as the shock pulse value (SPV), defined as SPV=R/N²*F². 11-05-2014 27ROHIT KAUSHIK
  28. 28. Monitoring techniques Shock pulse interpretation Overall vibration level trend Shock pulse value trend Comments Low and rising Remains low No bearing damage Low and rising Low but rising at the same rate as the overall vibration level Bearing damage likely Low and rising High value but constant Damaged bearing but another problem is causing the rising vibration 11-05-2014 28ROHIT KAUSHIK
  29. 29. Current & Flux monitoring Faults on either rotor or stator disrupt the radial and circumferential patterns of flux in the machine causing changes to the power being fed to the machine, which can be detected via its terminal quantities voltage, current and power measured outside the machine to give an indication of its condition. A) Generator stator winding fault detection- The most significant technique in this area is on-line discharge detection, which is dealt in further slides. B) Generator rotor faults detection- Turn-to-turn faults in a generator rotor winding may lead to local overheating and eventually to rotor earth faults. In addition, the shorting of turns causes unequal heating of the rotor leading to bending and an unbalanced pull, which together cause increased vibration 11-05-2014 29ROHIT KAUSHIK
  30. 30. Current & Flux monitoring A way of detecting them on-line ,is using a stationary search coil fitted in the air gap of the machine. The search coil, of diameter less than the tooth-width of the rotor, is fixed to the stator usually in the air gap, and detects either the radial or circumferential component of magnetic flux. New techniques have been developed utilising a digital storage oscilloscope connected to the search coil to give an initial indication of the development of an inter-turn fault. The purpose is to identify any asymmetry in the MMF waveform caused by shorted turns. Photographs of typical search coil installation in large generators 11-05-2014 30ROHIT KAUSHIK
  31. 31. Motor rotor faults detection Stator current monitoring for rotor faults Any rotor fault in an induction motor will cause a characteristic swing in the supply ammeter reading, Careful measurement of the stator current will therefore enable such a fault to be monitored. Detecting side bands in the supply current of an induction motor 11-05-2014 31ROHIT KAUSHIK
  32. 32. Generator and motor comprehensive methods Shaft flux- Shaft flux, or axial leakage flux, occurs in all electrical machines. It is produced because no machine can be constructed with perfect symmetry. Faults, such as winding short circuits, voltage imbalance and broken rotor bars, represent severe disruptions to the internal symmetry of the machine. It is logical to conclude, therefore, that the effect on the production of axial flux will be readily observable. 11-05-2014 32ROHIT KAUSHIK

  35. 35. Temperature Monitoring The limits to rating of electrical machines are generally set by the maximum permissible temperature that the insulation can withstand. There are three basic approaches to temperature monitoring. • To measure local temperatures at points in the machine using embedded temperature detectors. • To use a thermal image, fed with suitable variables, to monitor the temperature of what is perceived to be the hottest spot in the machine. • To measure the bulk temperatures of coolant fluids. 11-05-2014 35SAMRAT ROY
  36. 36. Local temperature measurement This can be done using thermocouples, resistance temperature detectors or embedded temperature detectors. To monitor the active part of the machine they are usually embedded in: • The stator winding and in the stator core. • temperature detectors embedded in the stator winding need to be located close to its hottest part, which may be in the slot portion or end-winding portion. • The bearings to detect hot running. 11-05-2014 36SAMRAT ROY
  37. 37. Local temperature measurement Location of temperature detectors in electrical machines 11-05-2014 37SAMRAT ROY
  38. 38. Local temperature measurement On a winding the devices have to be embedded in the insulation at some distance from the copper itself. 11-05-2014 38SAMRAT ROY
  39. 39. Local temperature measurement 11-05-2014 39 As a result, the measured temperature will not necessarily be that of the winding itself but an image of it. SAMRAT ROY
  40. 40. Local temperature measurement 11-05-2014 40 The heat flow per unit area, Q, through the insulation system can be described by simple conduction equations as follows 𝑄 = ℎ 𝑇𝑠 − 𝑇𝑔 = 𝑘 𝑡2 𝑇𝑠 − 𝑇𝑡 = 𝑘 𝑡1 𝑇𝑐 − 𝑇𝑡 𝐸𝑙𝑖𝑚𝑖𝑛𝑎𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔 𝑇𝑠 𝑇𝑡 = 𝑇𝑔 + 𝑄 𝑡2 𝑘 + 1 ℎ SAMRAT ROY
  41. 41. Local temperature measurement 11-05-2014 41 𝑇𝑡 = 𝑇𝑔 + 𝑇𝑒 − 𝑇𝑡 𝑡2 + (𝑘/ℎ) 𝑡1 𝑇1 = 𝑇𝑔 + 𝑇𝑐 𝑡2 + (𝑘/ℎ) 𝑡1 1 + 𝑡2 + (𝑘/ℎ) 𝑡1 𝑠𝑜, 𝑇1~𝑇𝑐 𝑖𝑓 𝑇𝑔 ≪ 𝑇𝑐 & 𝑡2 + 𝑘 ℎ 𝑡1 ≫ 1 SAMRAT ROY
  42. 42. Local temperature measurement 11-05-2014 42 So the measured temperature Tt will approach the temperature of the hottest active component Tc if the thickness of insulation, t2 , applied over the ETD is sufficient compared to the main insulation. This problem does not occur for devices embedded in the slot portion between two conductors, where there is a low heat flux between the active copper parts. 𝑇1~𝑇𝑐 𝑖𝑓 𝑇𝑔 ≪ 𝑇𝑐 & 𝑡2 + 𝑘 ℎ 𝑡1 ≫ 1 SAMRAT ROY
  43. 43. Hot-spot measurement and thermal images 11-05-2014 43 The thermal image technique has not received wide application on rotating elec- trical machines. The thermal image consists of a dial-type thermometer with its bulb immersed in the region where the transformer oil is hottest. A small heating coil, connected to the secondary of a current transformer, serves to circulate around the bulb a current proportional to the load current and is such that it increases the bulb temperature by an amount equal to the greatest winding- to-coil temperature gradient.

  44. 44. Hot-spot measurement and thermal images Comparison between measurements and the predictions of a thermal image of an electrical machine. (a) Comparison for 5.5 kw induction motor. (b) Duty cycle for (a) 11-05-2014 44SAMRAT ROY
  45. 45. Hot-spot measurement and thermal images Comparison between measurements and the predictions of a thermal image of an electrical machine. (a) Comparison for 7.5 kw induction motor. (b) Duty cycle for (a) 11-05-2014 SAMRAT ROY 45
  46. 46. Bulk measurement 11-05-2014 46 This can be found from the measurement of the internal and external coolant temperature rises, obtained from thermocouples located. This is done in most large machines An increase in temperature rise would clearly show:  when a machine is being overloaded.  the coolant circuits are not performing as they should. SAMRAT ROY
  47. 47. Conclusion 11-05-2014 47 Temperature measurement can yield very valuable bulk indications of the condition of an electrical machine using  simple sensors  narrow bandwidth (<1 Hz)  low-data-rate signals Temperature rises are important rather than absolute temperature. There are advances in the application of modern sensors, which will allow temp- erature measurements to be made closer to the active parts of a machine.
