How to Choose a Submersible Motor
Submersible motors are not just for marine applications. They can be used for a variety of different purposes, such as for water treatment plants, pumping stations, and more. It's important to know how to choose a submersible motor, though, because they come in a variety of different styles and sizes. These styles include low voltage, medium voltage, and high voltage motors.
slip ring motor
Slip ring motors are used in many industries. Their design and construction are based on the specific application. They are reliable solutions for pumps and other water industry equipment.
The main benefit of using a slip ring motor is its ability to generate high starting torque and smooth acceleration. This makes it ideal for use in applications where the load is high in inertia. However, it is a more expensive alternative to standard induction motors.
A slip ring motor's basic components are the rotating rings, stationary brushes, and a metal sleeve ring. Each of these elements has unique properties that need to be addressed.
Slip ring motors are highly customizable, and most manufacturers offer custom models. However, most slip ring motors are built to meet NEMA standards, which specify flange dimensions, mechanical specifications, and electrical specifications.
For a slip ring to perform properly, it needs to be insulated. It should also be weatherproof. Depending on the application, different types of resistors may be needed. These resistors can be liquid, metallic, or saline.
Secondary resistance starter resistors are applied to the rotor circuit to limit inrush current and to control speed. As the motor accelerates, the resistors gradually decrease in value.
Slip rings have an extremely wide range of applications. They are used in electronics, medical and pharmaceutical applications, robotics, and heavy industrial machinery.
medium voltage motor
The Submersible Medium Voltage motor is a three phase induction motor that is driven by an alternating current source. It is used in well-gathering systems.
Choosing the right submersible medium voltage motor requires understanding its operating characteristics. A properly designed electrical power supply is essential. This can be done by considering a number of factors.
First, the nameplate of the motor will contain its maximum rated current and voltage. It will also include the locked rotor amperage. Typically, the term "KVA code" identifies the motor's nominal range of KVA/HP.
Next, the motor's nameplate should indicate a safe running temperature for the SMV. In addition, the motor should be able to operate at a high voltage. If the motor can't handle its load, it might fail.
Besides the voltage, the most obvious initial design element is the available phase. Often, the motor's manufacturer will provide a "KVA code" which is a standardized value that represents its minimum and maximum operating range.
In addition to the above elements, the system must also include short circuit protection and disconnect methods. This is because the distance between the incoming power source and the motor can be thousands of feet.
As the distance increases, so does the risk of cable damage. Cable resistance and the higher temperature of the cable will increase the voltage drop.
high voltage motor
A high voltage submersible motor is one of the most important pumping devices. They are used to pump water from lakes and rivers, from factories and from mines. Many manufacturers make high-voltage motors capable of working on both 380- and 460-volts.
There are many things to consider when installing a high-voltage submersible motor. These include the cabling and wiring needed for proper operation. It is also important to consider the electrical power supply. The power supply is critical to the proper application of a submersible motor.
High-voltage submersible motors are often found in projects like the South-to-North water diversion project. This paper will provide some options for well-gathering systems.
The key to proper installation is to know how the voltage is measured. There are two basic formulas that can be used to determine the voltage drop across a cable.
The motor manufacturer will usually provide the exact voltage that is required for a project. In general, AC3 and AC4 are the most common voltages applied to submersible motors.
Besides the obvious, a "stepped-down" voltage can be helpful in maintaining adequate running voltage. With higher voltage, the voltage drops more and can also cause power loss. To help prevent this, a compensating "fudge factor" is usually used.
