This is the second edition of CSA C392, Testing of three-phase squirrel cage induction motors during refurbishment. It supersedes the previous edition published in 2011.
Changes have been made throughout the standard. Test procedures have been reorganized for clarity. Requirements have been updated to reflect current capability of test equipment. Requirements for test procedures have been made mandatory. A new non-mandatory Annex has been added that describes a method to determine efficiency estimation based on no-load tests.
