© 2017 IEEE. Condition monitoring can diagnose the inception of fault mechanisms in induction motors, thus avoiding failure and expensive repairs. Therefore, there is a strong need to develop an efficient condition monitoring. The main target is to achieve a relatively low cost and/or non-invasive system which is still powerful in terms of monitoring for online detection of developing faults. The presented paper addresses rotor eccentricity faults and studies conventional monitoring techniques for induction motors. In order to reduce the unbalanced magnetic pull (UMP) in case of an eccentric rotor, the eccentricity-generated additional airgap flux waves should be reduced. The radial forces in an induction motor are calculated, and the characteristics of unbalanced magnetic pull are described.
