Take The Electric Motor Challenge - Quiz

Test your knowledge with this PdMA Sponsored Ten Question Quiz about Electric Motors.


Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The normal expected in-rush current of a motor is twice the full load amperage rating of the motor.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the normal expected in-rush current of a motor is typically higher than twice the full load amperage rating of the motor. In-rush current refers to the initial surge of current that occurs when a motor is first started. This surge is usually higher than the full load amperage rating due to factors such as the motor's starting torque requirements and the impedance of the motor windings. Therefore, the in-rush current is not limited to being twice the full load amperage rating.

    Ohms law is stated as:

    • A.

      E= R/I

    • B.

      I= R/E

    • C.

      E= I*R

    • D.

      R=I*E

    Correct Answer
    C. E= I*R
    Explanation
    Ohm's Law states that the voltage (E) across a conductor is equal to the current (I) flowing through it multiplied by the resistance (R) of the conductor. This equation, E = I * R, shows that the voltage is directly proportional to the current and the resistance. In other words, if the current or the resistance increases, the voltage across the conductor will also increase. Similarly, if the current or the resistance decreases, the voltage will decrease as well. This equation is fundamental in understanding the relationship between voltage, current, and resistance in electrical circuits.

    Per IEEE std. 43-2000 recommendations, when testing insulation on motors rated between 2501-5000 volts you should use 2500-5000 Volts.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    According to IEEE std. 43-2000 recommendations, when testing insulation on motors rated between 2501-5000 volts, you should use a test voltage that is 1000 volts higher than the rated voltage. Therefore, the correct answer is False.

  • 4. 

    Inductance is the characteristic of an electrical circuit that opposes the starting, stopping, or changing of current flow.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because inductance is a property of electrical circuits that causes them to resist changes in current flow. This means that when current is starting, stopping, or changing in the circuit, the inductance will generate a back EMF (electromotive force) that opposes the change. This opposition to current changes is known as inductive reactance and is caused by the presence of an inductor in the circuit. Therefore, the given statement accurately describes the characteristic of inductance in electrical circuits.

    Current leads voltage in an inductive circuit.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    In an inductive circuit, the current lags behind the voltage. This is because inductors oppose changes in current by generating a back EMF, which causes the current to take some time to reach its maximum value. Therefore, the given statement is false.

    Per IEEE std. 43-2000 recommendations, the minimum insulation resistance for most DC armature and AC windings built after 1970 (form wound coils) is 100 Megohms.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    According to IEEE std. 43-2000 recommendations, the minimum insulation resistance for most DC armature and AC windings built after 1970 (form wound coils) is 100 Megohms. This means that the insulation resistance of these coils should be at least 100 Megohms to ensure proper functioning and safety.

    Limits for Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of voltage and current are governed by IEEE std. 519.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The explanation for the given correct answer is that the limits for Total Harmonic Distortion (THD) of voltage and current are indeed governed by IEEE std. 519. This standard provides guidelines and requirements for controlling and limiting the amount of harmonic distortion that can be present in electrical systems. By adhering to these limits, it helps to ensure the quality and reliability of the power supply and prevent any negative effects caused by excessive harmonics.

    Motor insulation has a negative temperature coefficient meaning that as temperature increases resistance decreases.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Motor insulation has a negative temperature coefficient, which means that as the temperature increases, the resistance of the insulation decreases. This is because the materials used in motor insulation, such as varnishes or resins, have properties that cause their resistance to decrease as they heat up. This is an important characteristic as it allows the motor to operate at higher temperatures without damaging the insulation.

    The minimum polarization index reading for class H insulation is 1.5.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The minimum polarization index reading for class H insulation is not 1.5. The polarization index is a measure of the insulation resistance of an electrical system and is calculated by dividing the insulation resistance at 10 minutes by the insulation resistance at 1 minute. Class H insulation, which is typically used in high-temperature applications, has a minimum polarization index reading of 2.0. Therefore, the statement is false.

    A high pole-pass frequency sideband amplitude is indicative of a motor defect in which of the following motor fault zones:

    • A.

      Stator

    • B.

      Power Quality

    • C.

      Power Circuit

    • D.

      Rotor

    • E.

      Air gap

    • F.

      Insulation

    Correct Answer
    D. Rotor
    Explanation
    A high pole-pass frequency sideband amplitude is indicative of a motor defect in the rotor. The pole-pass frequency is the frequency at which the rotor poles pass the stator poles. When there is a defect in the rotor, such as a broken or misaligned rotor bar, it can cause an imbalance in the magnetic field, resulting in an increase in the pole-pass frequency sideband amplitude. This can be detected through vibration analysis or motor current signature analysis, and indicates a fault in the rotor.
