UNIVERSAL ELECTRIC MOTORS

( Second Revision)
0. FOREWORD
0.1 This Indian Standard (Second Revision ) was adopted by the Indian
Standards Institution on 31 October 1979, after the draft finalized by the
Rotating Machinery Sectional Committee had been approved by the
Electrotechnical Division Council.
0.2 This standard was first issued in 1959, covering single phase and three
phase motors with Class A insulation. It was revised in 1964 in which
many modifications were made and also three phase motors were excluded
from this standard.
0.3 The present revision of this standard has been prepared to align it with
the latest developments in this field and also to include the following
changes:
4 The motors intended for use in domestic appliances which may
not be complying with requirements specified for enclosures
( see 4.2 ) have been included,
b) The performance values for 4-pole general purpose motors have
been included,
cl The routine and type tests have been specified for universal motors,
and
4 Dimensions for large number of frame designations of foot
mounted and flange mounted motors have been included.
0.4 This standard recommends the important dimensions for frame of
motors with foot or resilient mounting either with sleeve or ball bearings
which are necessary to ensure mechanical interchangeability.
0.5 This standard covers the requirements and tests for general purpose
motors. The motors used in specific applications may have special require-
ments and these special requirements are subject to agreement between the
user and the manufacturer. The special requirements for single-phase
electric motors for the foIloWing applications will be covered in a separate

3
Is:996-1979
standard in the following parts:
Part I Refrigeration duty motors
Part II Fan duty motors
Part III Domestic laundry machine motors.
0.6 Guidance for testing single-phase ac and universal motors is given in
IS : 7572-1972*.
0.7 To ensure satisfactory installation and maintenance of induction
motors, it is urged that the recommendations contained in IS : 900-1965-l
should be carefully followed.
0.8 If so desired, the thermistors may be used in the windings of the motors.
The details and specifications of thermistors would be as agreed between
the purchaser and the manufacturer.
0.9 In the preparation of this standard, assistance has been derived from
the following publications:

27
IS:996-1979

APPENDIX A
[ Clause 14.1 (b) ]
TYPES OF MOTORS AND THEIR TORQUE CHARACTE3ZISTICS

A-l. TYPES OF MOTORS

A-l.1 Split-Phase* - Owing to their high starting currents, split-phase


motors are generally used for loads of low inertia and infrequent starting.
When the higher starting currents can be tolerated, motors of the higher
torque rating can be used [ see 1 ( b ) in Table 14 1.
A-l.2 Capacitor-Start Induction-Run* - These motors, having higher start-
ing torques and lower starting currents than split-phase motors, are gene-
rally more suitable for loads of higher inertia and more frequent starting.
A-l.3 Capacitor-Start Capacitor-Run* - These motors have characteristics
similar to those covered by capacitor-start induction-run motors but are
more applicable where a greater degree sf quietness or a higher efficiency
and power factor are desirable.
A-l.4 Capacitor-Start and Run - These motors are for use where low start-
ing torques are acceptable. They are also generally quieter than split-phase
or capacitor-start induction-run motors.
A-l.5 Shaded-Pole- These motors are suitable for all applications where
only a very low starting torque is required and motor efficiency is not
important.
A-l.6 Universal -These motors are series wound or compensated series
wound, which may be operated either on direct current or single-phase
alternating current at approximately the same speed and output, aad are
suitable for applications where speeding up on light loads is desirable.
NOTE- Starting, pull-up and pull-out torques of motors vary as the square.of the
voltage at the motor terminals. Unless the wiring is adequate to carry the starting
current without excessive voltage drop, the starting torque available may beskriously
reduced.

A-l.7 Refrigeration Motors


A-1.8 The torque characteristics are intended to serve as guide to generally
accepted practice in regard to small ac 50-cycle 4-pole motors.
It will be noted that for certain types, alternative torque characteris-
tics are available ( XLTable 14 ).
*Unless otherwise specified, these motors are provided with some means of switching
out or modifying the auxiliary or starting winding, for eyample, centrifugal switcha or
electromagnetic relays.

( Clauses 3.2, 7.1, 7.2.2, 8.1, 10.2, and 17.1 )
INFORMATION ON SELECTION AND APPLICATION

D-O. GENERAL
D-O.1 The information given in D-l to D-6 may be useful in selection and
application of these type of motors.

D-l. VOLTAGE AND FREQUENCY VARIATION


D-l.1 Motors covered by this standard shall be capable of delivering rated
output with:
a) the terminal voltage differing from its rated value by not more
than f6 percent, or
b) the frequency differing from its rated value by not more than f3
percent, or
c) any combination of (a) and (b).
In case of continuous operation at extreme voltage limits, the tempera-
ture rise specified in Table 6 shall not exceed by more than 10C. Motors
when operated under the extreme conditions of voltage and frequency
variation, may not necessarily have their performance in accordance With
Tables 8 to 11.

D-2. VARIATION FROM RATED SPEED


D-2.1 This shall be in accordance with Table 12.

D-3. NUMBER OF STARTS


D-3.1 These shall be subject to an agreement between the manufacturer and
the user. However, the following may be taken as a guide to the number
of starts:
Tvpe of Motor No. of StartsjHr. Dtrratiorl of Each

run
Capacitor start and run 60 3 seconds
Shaded pole 80 3 seconds

32
IS:996-1979

D-4. SELECTION OF MOTORS

D-4.1 Motors should be properly selected to ensure their satisfactory


service. Motors conforming to this standard are suitable for operation in
accordance with their ratings under usual service conditions.

Usual service conditions in addition to those stated in 3 shall be as


follows:
a> Installation on a rigid mounting base,
b> Installation in areas or supplementary enclosures which do not
seriously interfere with the ventilation of the motor,
c) Voltages and frequency in accordance with 7,
d> Variations in supply voltages and frequency in accordance with
D-l, and
e) Motors and driven equipment is direct-coupled with flexible
couplings.

D-5. SHORT-TIME RATED MOTORS

D-5.1 Unless otherwise agreed upon between the manufacturer and the user,
the short time rated motors should not be used on any appiication where
driven machine may be !eft running continuously.

D-6.. EFFECTS OF VARIATION IN VOLTAGE 4ND FREQUENCY


UPON THE PERFORMANCE OF INDUCTION MOTORS

D-6.1 Induction motors are at times operated on circuits of voltage and


frequency other than those for which they are rated. Following would
be a brief statemcirt of some opcr.Jting results caused by variation in voltage
and frequency:
a) With increase or decrease in voltage from that permitted by toler-
ances on rated voltage; the heating at rated output in watts may
increase. Such operation for longer periods of time may deterio-
rate or accelerate deterioration of insuiation system;
b) Increase in voltage than rated voltage would usually result into
lowering in power factor and vice versu;
9 Starting and pull out torques will be proportional to the square of
voltage;
4 Increase in voltage will result into decrease in slip whiie decrease
in voltage will result in increase of slip, for example, for 10 percent
decrease in rated voltage, slip will increase from 5 to 6.05 percent,

33
Is:996-1979

e) Frequency eater than rated frequency usually improves power


factor but dgr
ecreases starting torque and increases speed friction and
winding loss. At frequency lower than rated frequency reverse
can be expected;
f 1 frequency and voltage are both varying, then cumulative effects
If
shall be observed, for example, if voltage is high and frequency
low, the starting torque would be greatly increased while power
factor will be decreased and the temperature-rise increased with
normal load Therefore, highest permissible voltage and lowest
permissible frequency should not occur simultaneously; and
g) The information given in (a) to (f) applies particularly to general
purpose motors. This may not be always applicable in connection
with definite purpose motors ( for example, for fan duty motors ),
being built for particular purpose.

APPENDIX E
(Ch&Y~ 15.51 )
SAMPLING OF ELECTRIC MOTORS

El. SCALE OF SAMPLING

El.1 Lot- In any consignment, all the electric motors of the same type
and rating from the same batch of manufacturers shall be grouped together
to constitute a lot.
El.2 The conformity of the lots to the requirements of this specification
shall be ascertained for each lot separately. The number of electric motors
to be selected for this purpose shall depend upon the size of lot and shall be
in accordance with co1 1 and 3 of Table 15.
E1.2.1 These electric motors shall be selected from the lot at random.
In order to ensure the randomness of selection, procedures given in
IS : 49051968* may be followed.

E~.NUMBER OF TESTS AND CRITERIA FORC~NFOR~~~TY

E2.1 The electric motors at the first stage, selected at random according
to co1 1 and 3 of Table 15 shall be subjected to each of the acceptance
tests. If an electric motor fails in any of the acceptance tests, it shall be
termed as defective. The lot shall be considered as conforming to the re-
quirements if the number of defectives found in the sample is less than or
*Methods for random sampling.

equal to the acceptance number (see co1 5 ) and shall be rejected if it is


greater than or equal to rejection number (see co1 6 ). If the number of
defectives lie between the acceptance number and the rejection number, the
second sample of the same size shall be chosen at random and tested. If
the number of defectives found in the combined sample is greater than or
equal to the rejection number, the lot shall be rejected; otherwise the lot
shall be accepted.

F-5.1 Torques
F-5.1.1 Pull Out Torques - Lower torques than specified in Table 4
may be acceptable provided motor meets other performance requirement
for satisfactory operation of appliance in which it is used.
F-5.1.2 Pull Up and Break Away Torques - These should be sufficient
to accelerate the fan satisfactorily under worst operating conditions of
voltage and frequency ( see Appendix D ) for which the appliance has
been designed.
F-5.1.3 Momentary Overload Test -The requirement shall not be
applicable to fan motors.
F-5.1.4 Full Load Test - The power input and speed should be
measured when motor is fitted with the fan and mounted in the appliance
so that the actual conditions under which it is loaded are simulated.
F-5.1.5 Temperature Rise Test - This shall be carried out when
motor is fitted with the fan as used in the appliance as in most of the
cases, the motor is cooled by the air drawn over its surface by the driven
fan. In all such motors, the rating on name plate should appear as AOM
( Air Over Motors ). Motors with AOM ratings shall not be run with-
out fan ( other than necessary for routine testing of motors ) as it may
result into overheating of motor.

F-6. MULTISPEED MOTORS


F-6.1 In a single speed induction motor, the speed may be changed by
virtue of fan load and motor characteristics by effective change of voltage.
This change in voltage can either be achieved by tapped winding in the
motor itself or by external means ( for example, speed regulator ).
Close co-operation between the motor manufacturer and fan manufac-
turer is recommended in order to obtain satisfactory speed regulation.
F-6.1.1 The operational speeds shall be subject to agreement between
the manufacturer and the user. The tolerances on speed shall be as per
Table 12.
