IEC 60034-18-32:2022 CMV contains both the official standard and its commented version. The commented version provides you with a quick and easy way to compare all the changes between IEC 60034-18-32:2022 edition 2.0 and the previous IEC 60034-18-32:2010 edition 1.0.
Futhermore, comments from IEC TC 2 experts are provided to explain the reasons of the most relevant changes.
EVS-EN IEC 60034-18-32 describes electrical endurance qualification procedures for form-wound windings.
IEC 60034-18-32 discusses rotating electrical machines and functional evaluation of insulation systems with a focus on electrical endurance qualification procedures for form-wound windings energized with sinusoidal power frequency voltage.
IEC 60034-18-32 is the eighteenth part of the IEC 60034 series that deals exclusively with insulation systems for form-wound windings (Type II) andconcentrates on electrical functional evaluation.
The test procedures for the main wall insulation are comparative in nature, such that the performance of a candidate insulation system is compared to that of a reference insulation system with proven service experience.
The qualification procedures of inverter duty insulation system for form-wound windings can be found in IEC 60034-18-42 or IEC 60034-18-41. A new and informative test procedure for the stress control system is introduced and defined in IEC 60034-18-32.
IEC 60034-18-32 on electrical endurance qualification procedures for form-wound windings is useful for manufacturers of electrical rotating machines such as AC generators and DC generators, manufacturers of electrical rotating machines such as synchronous motors and synchronous condensers and service providers for electrical rotating machines.
IEC 60034-18-32 provides you with guidance on the selection and designation of test procedures, full evaluation of the main wall insulation, evaluation of the stress control system, test objects, electrical ageing, diagnostic sub-cycle and failures of the main wall insulation functional evaluation of the main wall data.
