Motor Life

There is a wide variety of thermal models in the literature due to the diversity of factors affecting the temperature variation of an electric motor.

There are several factors that affect the life of engines, especially the thermal effect, but also the mechanical, electrical, environmental and maintenance. These factors raise the engine temperature relative to ambient temperature due to internal losses.

When developing the conjugate leeson 174107.00 to activate a mechanical load coupled to its axis, the motor has an increase in temperature and this temperature must not exceed the value defined by the insulation class of that motor. To determine this temperature increase it is necessary to develop a thermal model.

Correct storage is also very important for preserving the quality of the engine that is still in stock, waiting to be used. To determine the final engine temperature, the simplified thermal model will be used, in which the engine is considered a homogeneous body, and the energy absorbed is evenly supplied to the environment. Initially, the engine when driven has a temperature increase until reaching the thermal equilibrium, is when the process of heat exchange with the environment begins.
