    More than 1 million photographs dating back to the Edison era (1872-1892) plus the entire instruction book and technical reprint files of the former General Electric Company's (GE) Advertising and Sales Promotion (A&SP) operation form the core of the Schenectady Museum, Hall of Electrical History (HOEH). In addition, the Schenectady Museum HOEH collection includes the papers of many prominent electrical pioneers, files of present as well as previous electrical periodicals, books, artifacts, movies, videos, and calendar art (Figure 1). On the basis of this material, the HOEH has published several books on the history of electrical technology and GE. But the story of how the HOEH came to be is a fascinating tale of fortuitous coincidence combined with the hard work of many dedicated volunteers. View full abstract»

    IEEE Standard 1566: standard for performance of adjustable speed drives rated 375 kW and larger, was written to assist users, consultants, and manufacturers of large adjustable speed drives (ASDs). Users and consultants use it to specify a high-quality drive system and more easily compare proposals, while manufacturers easier to produce and compare. IEEE 1566 provides industry-wide alignment of terms that are commonly used in drive discussions as well as descriptions of various common drive functions and requirements. View full abstract»

  • Increased Efficiency Versus Increased Reliability

    The vast majority of totally enclosed fan cooled (TEFC) squirrel cage induction motors in the 1-to 20-hp range installed in the petroleum and chemical industries are National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) "T" frames built prior to 1992, NEMA "T" frames built in accordance with the Energy Policy Act of 1992 (commonly referred to as EPAct motors), and the NEMA Premium motors, introduced after the year 2000, that exceed the EPAct efficiency standards. All three types are available in accordance with the IEEE 841 recommended practice and standards. The most obvious difference in these three generations of motors is their efficiency levels. There has been some concern expressed by the users of these motors that to achieve the premium levels of efficiency it was necessary to compromise other performance characteristics and the motor reliability. This article addresses these claims and shows that they are without basis. View full abstract»

    There has been a push toward higher efficiencies in the petrochemical industry. This can be seen in the revisions of IEEE 841, which is expected to promote NEMA Premium as the standard, sometime in the near future. Leading motor manufacturers have been motivated by these industry-driven efficiency improvements to investigate the optimization of manufacturing processes and designs to further improve the efficiency of three-phase induction motors. It is very important to make the industrial users fully understand how losses are generated and identify the factors that reduce these significantly, at an acceptable cost for the investment of the motor. Life-cycle costs should also be investigated. This article focuses on the new technologies, designs, and processes being introduced to improve the efficiency of three-phase induction motors.

    This article deals with the impact of different lubrication oils on electric motor energy consumption. Lubrication, and the analysis thereof is becoming a major field in the reliability world. All the samples of oil taken from the bearings machines, finds signs of existing or soon-to-come bearing damage and plan accordingly to reduce harmful downtime. Testing was conducted with the test motor on a motor test standard with seven ISO grade 68 lubrication oils over a two-day period. View full abstract»

  • Recruiting Young Engineers

    According to our survey, 40% of respondents did not know anything about the pulp and paper industry. Of those who knew, 23% had commented that there are potentially interesting jobs in the industry related to controls, and 23% had a negative image about the industry. We can conclude that the declining number of young engineers choosing pulp and paper as their desired career is due to their attitude toward the industry and a perceived lack of opportunities. The problem lies in the communication - or lack thereof - between the industry and these young engineers during their university years. It is with a simple recruitment plan and the determination to fully implement it that young engineers can be better educated about the industry, and hence, would start including pulp and paper as one of the industries they would consider for their career.
