Generatortech, Inc. provides a MS-Windows based program (MS-Windows 3.x or MS-Windows 95) that combines data acquisition, display and analysis of rotor shorted turns. The system uses a high-speed 16-bit data acquisition board to record the flux probe waveforms. The program provides an oscilloscope-like display while recording the data. After recording a waveform, the data can be analyzed immediately. The program automatically identifies and labels the waveform features and measures the appropriate values to provide estimates of turn shorts.
The Generatortech Acquisition and Analysis Program has been designed to quickly and easily acquire and save data from a Generatortech Flux-Probe. Ease of use was the most important guiding principle behind the design of the program. Since data collection for shorted-turn detection may be separated by as much as six months for a single generator, the program was designed to minimize the need for the user to relearn the program by keeping the interface as simple as possible. The program runs under MS-Windows 3.x or MS-Windows 95 and follows the user interface guidelines set forth by Microsoft for Windows programs. Therefore, familiarity with other Windows programs will provide a user with all the knowledge required to select settings, open and save files, and acquire and analyze data from within the program.
In addition, all user settings are saved when exiting the program and are reloaded when the program is restarted. Therefore, after the initial setup, the process of acquiring and saving data is reduced to a few simple steps. Acquiring and saving data for one load point can take less than 30-seconds.
