Feedback control systems. . current knowledge in feedback and control systems . .. by the generation and distribution of electrical power. In this lecture, we lead you through a study of the basics of control system. A control system is an interconnection of components forming a system.
If there is voltage at a-b on the coil, the coil is defective or the contactor has seized also note voltage level.
Test power supply, fuses, thermal overload trips, measure voltage at motor terminals. Cage motors have a very low starting torque, and must not therefore start under heavy load1 lf there is voltage at the motor terminals, check the motor.
Switch off the voltage, disconnect at the terminal board and check windings. Measure winding resistance with measuring bridge and compare: The insulation resistance between the windings, and between the windings and earth is measured with an insulation tester or insulation resistance bridge.
A cage motor does not start in the star position of the star-delta switch, only on the delta stage: Motor torque in star connection is so low that it cannot operate the driven machine; too high a load. Reduce starting lad, use a starting V-belt or use a motor of higher rating - slipring motor. Motor starts in the operating position of the star-delta switch, speed greatly reduced under load: Motor has difficulty in starting, loud humming noise when switched on, motor heats up quickly: Measure phase currents; if they differ seriously from specification, the motor must be rewound.
Disconnect cables from terminal board, and remove links from terminal board. Measure insulation between phases and to case; replace winding. Open circuit in stator 2. Open circuit in rotor 3. Brushes do not bed on slipring 4. Bearing seized. Test stator circuit: Test supply, fuses, switches, measure voltage at the stator terminals, check the windings as for the cage motor.
Test rotor circuit: Disconnect rotor terminals and measure rotor stalled voltage with the stator switched on. Compare measured voltage with the voltage specified on the rating plate. If no voltage is measurable - open circuit in the rotor. If rotor voltage corresponds to value specified - switch off stator and test sliprings, carbon brushes and resistances for open circuit. After checking rated data on rating plate: Test plain bearings, ball bearings, shaft clearance; if necessary replace bearing bushes or ball bearings.
Disconnect supply cables from the starter, insulate brushes from slip rings with piece of paper or wood, and test starter cable insulation; remove faults.
Detach supply cables from terminal board, and remove links on terminal board; test insulation between phases and to earth; replace winding. Lift brushes from the sliprings; remove belt from pulley, motor will then idle; repair as required.
Establish, by touching, whether the winding is heating irregularly, considerable heating at location of fault indicates rewinding. Test voltage supply, inspect starter and windings open or short-circuit or earth fault. Check type of motor, because different types have different characteristics. First establish whether armature and field voltage are present. Many motor control systems are provided with field monitoring devices to prevent the armature from taking too high a current or becoming damaged in the event of field failure.
This point must also be given attention when faultfinding. Voltmeter at L2 and terminal t of field control element, then at terminal s, noting the position of the field control element. If voltage is present at F1 - F2, test armature circuit and winding FT - F2 for open circuit, turn-to-turn fault or earth fault. If voltage is present at F1 - F2 and A1 - A2, and if motor is still not running, check load and armature.
Phase angle between high and low voltages is either 0 or If the phase angle is not the same, only the low voltage connections need be replaced. If measurement is carried out with a voltmeter, there must be no voltage between two winding terminals which are to be connected to a conductor on the output side. In the case of parallel connection of three-phase transformers, the following must be remembered: They must belong to the same switching group, with the possibility of equalising different characteristics by making suitable terminal connection.
A voltmeter is installed between terminals phases of the same name. If this voltmeter does not indicate a voltage, the circuit is in order. The supply cable for the equipment to be protected is monitored by a total current converter for residual current. The equipment casings are earthed. If fault to frame occurs in equipment thus protected, a fault current flows via earth; the sum of the currents in the supply cables is no longer 0, and the residual current device operates.
The switch also protects against contact of live-conductors to earth earth fault. Fault - Connection between neutral N and protective conductor PE after the residual current device.
If the residual current device falls to trip despite exceeding the rated fault current, this leads to the conclusion that there is a fault between the neutral N and the protective conductor PE , after the residual current device. Most of the fault current flows back via the neutral conductor. In the event of fault to frame after rectifier circuits, the unidirectional fault current flow may lead to magnetisation of the core of the residual current device, so preventing tripping.
Residual current devices FI safety switches bearing the symbol must cut out reliably even in the event of fault to frame after rectifier circuits pulsating direct fault currents. An insulation fault between the outer and protective conductor occurs before the residual current device. An earth leakage current flows via the earth electrode and an earth electrode voltage is generated.
The residual current device does not trip. To avoid such faults in the area of the residual current device, the protective conductor before the residual current device should not installed together with the supply cable in one conduit.
Safety switch trips: One reason for this might be a connection between neutral conductors in different residual current circuits behind the safety switch. In this case possible fault currents are distributed in any neutral conductors, and this may lead to undesirable tripping of a safety switch. Safety switch trips too early: This means that it trips before the permissible tripping range is reached.
Either the protective conductor is defective, or the system already has a certain basic fault, producing a current below the release current. This occurs in measuring circuits where the basic leakage current is added to the test current supplied by the measuring instrument therefore the safety switch trips earlier. If the residual current device has tripped, all poles of the supply are disconnected. This means that the circuit in which the fault has occurred cannot be identified immediately.
All the circuit breakers are now switched off or all the fuses are unscrewed, and the residual current device is reset. One of the circuit breakers is now switched in, or a fuse is screwed in until the residual current device trips again. The defective circuit is now identified. The main circuit breaker is now switched off or the fuse unscrewed, and the residual current device as well as the remaining circuits which have no faults are connected. In the defective circuit switch off all current using equipment, if plug-in pieces of equipment are being used, unplug them and reconnect the circuit.
If the residual current device now holds, one of the pieces of equipment is defective. If the residual current device fails again, the circuit must be examined with insulation testers and the circuits sub-divided at the terminals to isolate the fault. The insulation of the N conductor must also be tested. Damp and wet areas are particular sources of faults. Sometimes faults occur where the residual current device trips irregularly. In this case install a device with a lower tripping current, these trips more easily and faultfinding is therefore simpler to carry out.
If the residual current device repeatedly cuts out and all the circuit breakers are switched off; this indicates a fault between neutral and earth! WARNING The fault current release value of the residual current device may only be changed if permitted by the earthing condition of the system, i. In protective earthing, the casings of the equipment to be protected are connected via a protective conductor to a suitable earth electrode.
Fault current flows back through the ground It must be remembered that the specific earth resistance varies due to seasonal climatic fluctuations dry weather, wet weather. Fault current flows back via a metal water pipe network to the electricity generator or transmitter e.
If fault to frame takes place in protectively earthed equipment, a high current flows via the fault location and the protective earth electrode to the supply earth of the network, and the series-connected fuse cuts out.
If several Current using units are protected by a single fuse, the fault must be located by measuring the insulation resistance to deter- mine which of the current using units is defective.
The cases of the equipment to be protected are connected to the PEN conductor. Short circuits to frame on equipment employing PEN conductors causes the series-connected fuse to trip, for a large current flows through the fault and the PEN conductor. In cables having a cross section of less than 10mm2, the PEN conductor must be divided into an N and a PE conductor on the right in the diagram.
The risk of conductor breakage is avoided by division in the case of small conductor cross-sections. The PE and N conductors must not be reconnected after the division. Example of PEN conductors in a three-phase four-wire network. The neutral and protective conductors are laid separately.
No current normally in the PEN conductor. During installation the fuse in the defective circuit blows. It must then be checked whether the current using unit is short-circuiting or has an earth fault. If several current using units are protected by a single fuse, the fault must also be isolated between the units, i.
A high degree of operational safety is achieved with the protective cable system e. If fault to frame occurs, a fault current flows due to the insulation and capacitance condition of the network. No contact voltage occurs due to the connections of the protective conductor to the numerous earth electrodes.
For immediate location of the fault to frame the mains - earth insulation condition is monitored signal is received in the control room.
The fault must then be removed as quickly as possible. The rise in voltage in fault-free conductors increases the possibility of a second fault to frame. This causes the equipment with the least protection to be disconnected.
The double fault to frame earth short-circuiting then becomes a single fault again. The first fault is indicated by the monitoring system, but there is no indication of where the fault is located.
The faultfinding is carried out by measuring the total current of the individual circuits from the supply transformer. Since an earth fault gives rise to a fault current albeit small , the sum of the currents in the outer conductors and the neutral conductor is no longer zero 1st law of Kirchhoff.
The individual circuits are measured until the damaged circuit is found. A second possibility would be to switch off the individual circuits and observe the monitoring device until it no longer indicates a fault, but this procedure is not often possible because of operational breakdown. Testing of voltages U1, U2, U- with voltmeter and oscilloscope for open circuits. Compare the measured voltages U1, U2 with the data on the type plate. If the transformer voltages conform to the specifications, the fault lies in the diodes.
Each diode must then be checked individually oscilloscope. If a pulsating d. Diodes and capacitors can only be replaced. In most cases the r. In most cases a defective power semiconductor can be checked with an ohmmeter 1. Disconnect to measure values. Apply a threshold voltage of approx. If the measurement is carried out so that the positive pole of the ohmmeter is located at the anode of the diode to be tested, the resistance value must be lower than that in the reverse direction.
If the positive pole is located at the cathode, the instrument indicates a very high resistance value. If the diode is destroyed, a low resistance value is indicated in both directions. If the diode has a high resistance in both directions, there is an open circuit and the diode must be replaced. These can have a high resistance in both directions. If the thyristors are intact, the Instrument does not show any deflection in either direction, but if the thyristors are destroyed, 0 ohm can be indicated.
In addition to the arithmetical mean value and r. This circuit is most frequently used for powers of up to 2 kW. Inductance opposes all variations in the current, and so smoothes it. The load current ia is continuous. What is the rescue procedure in the event of electrical accidents particularly for release from the circuit?

Inform doctor, rescue service and police. Open circuit, fault to frame, short-circuiting, earth fault, short circuit between turns, phases. Conductors to earth, conductor to conductor and system to earth should be measured.
The following are tested: Connections to mains, load, remote Connection to mains, load, remote control system or control system Check whether the fault occurs when the current using units are disconnected. Mechanical faults bearings, chuck in drilling machines, gears Electrical faults conductor interrupted, etc Break in supply cable test fuses and motor safety switch Break in stator circuit After switching off, loosen connections on terminal board, and examine windings, replace stator winding if necessary.
Break in rotor circuit inspect brushes and rotor resistances, test rotor winding, replace if necessary. Measurement in forward direction positive pole of measuring instrument connected to the anode - relatively low resistance. Measurement in reverse direction positive pole of the measuring Instrument connected to the cathode , a high resistance is indicated.
If a low resistance is measured in both directions, the diode is destroyed. The fault to frame is caused by a conducting connection between a conducting part of the operating circuit and a conducting part which does not belong to the operating circuit.
In short-circuiting there is a conducting connection between live operating parts. Conductor break - one strand is- broken Earth fault - Contact between winding and laminations or casing Turn-to-turn fault - Contact between two turns of a coil Phase-to-phase fault - Contact between two winding lines. Ohmmeter - Cable open circuit, examine power semiconductor Resistance measuring bridge Wheatstone bridge - measure winding resistance.
This fault occurs in the supply cable motor safety switch has tripped , break in the stator and rotor circuit, or due to seized bearing. Either the star-delta contactor has a contact break, or the torque in the star connection is so low that the working machine cannot be started.
Starter too small replace Starter has poor contact locate open circuit with test lamp; either bridge the contact or replace starter. Starter incorrectly connected - compare with wiring diagram. Break in the supply cable - test terminals and cables Brushes do not bed an commutator Replace brushes if necessary.
Field winding interrupted - test Terminal voltage too low - measure Fault in starter - test contacts and connections Bearing seized. Brush sparking occurs where the commutator is out of round or if it is clogged with oil. Also when the motor is overloaded, displaced brushes, turn-to-turn fault in the field or inter-pole winding, and when the bearings are damaged. Transformer oil overheating - due to overloading or too high connection voltage high primary current - turn or earth fault low voltage - partial turn-to-turn fault.
