Abstract:
In this paper, a time stepping two-dimensional FEM is performed for modeling and analysis of a IM with insulation failure inter-turn fault. FEM analysis is used for magnetic field calculation and the magnetic flux density and vector potential of machine is obtained for healthy and faulty cases. Comparing the magnetic flux distribution of healthy and faulty machines helps to detect the influence of turn fault. The machine parameters (self and mutual inductances) are obtained for IM with inter-turn fault. Finally, the FEM machine model is used for studying the machine under different fault condition. Study results including phases and fault currents express the behavior of machine with inter-turn faults. The symmetrical current components of IM with different fault severity are obtained by FE study and studied. The machine torque in healthy and faulty condition is also obtained and compared. The torque vibration increase upon to degree of fault.
