scope:

This is a standard test procedure for the thermal evaluation and qualification of electrical insulation systems (EISs) for random-wound ac electric machinery, where thermal degradation is the dominating aging factor. This procedure compares the relative thermal performance of a candidate EIS to that of a reference EIS. This standard covers insulation systems for such machinery with operating voltage of up to 600 V at 50/60 Hz. This standard provides a statistical method for establishing a relative life-temperature relationship for an insulation system. To have any significance, the reference insulation system must be supported with adequate field-service data. This procedure is intended to evaluate insulation systems for use in air-cooled, random-wound ac electric machinery with "usual service conditions." This procedure, on its own, does not cover insulation systems such as exposure to conducting contaminates, radiation, inverter applications, or operation in oils, refrigerants, or other media that potentially degrade insulating materials

Purpose

The purpose of this standard procedure is to classify insulation systems in accordance with their temperature limits by test, rather than by chemical composition. This test procedure has been prepared to outline useful methods for the evaluation of systems of insulation for random-wound stators of rotating electric machines. The motorette procedure described is used for the evaluation of EISs.
