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.
IEC 60034-18-32:2022 describes qualification procedures for the evaluation of electrical endurance of insulation systems for use in rotating electrical machines using form-wound windings energized with sinusoidal power frequency voltage. 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. If no reference system is available, the diagram in Annex A is available for use. 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 Annex B.
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2010. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a. Title modified.
b. Simplification of clauses.
c. Reduction in the number of test procedures.
d. Inclusion of full bars and coils as test objects.
e. A new clause dealing with failures and failure criteria.
