Electrical load parameter, as well as machine side mechanical parameters, are measured for the purpose of motors study.
Measurement on selected motors is carried out to for electrical parameters such as:
- Load current
- Power factor
- Power is drawn
Measurement of mechanical parameters on the machine side includes :
- Speed measurement
- Pressure measurement
- Mechanical load
- Temperature measurement, etc relevant parameters.
For each case some of the important instruments which are looked are :
- Online instruments which are used for routine measurements.
- Power factors corrections capacitors.
- Energy meters used for monitoring.
