TL;DR: In this article, the authors reviewed literature on using high speed thyristor based control of HVAC power system elements to enhance the power carrying capacity of existing transmission circuits without compromising reliability.
Abstract: The paper reviews literature which addresses the application of Flexible AC Transmission System (FACTS) concepts to the improvement of Power System utilisation and performance. It summarises literature on using high speed thyristor based control of HVAC power system elements to enhance the power carrying capacity of existing transmission circuits without compromising reliability. It describes a study system representative of existing power systems that has been developed to evaluate the economic and technical issues of loading transmission lines to their thermal limits. Considered are two scenarios, a multi-line corridor and a long radial interconnection, where the issues addressed are transient and dynamic stability, power flow control, reactive support and voltage stability. A benchmark system is developed to validate performance of die more simple devices. It is concluded that FACTS devices have the potential to significantly increase system stability margins thereby increasing loading capabil...

TL;DR: In this paper, the authors apply the long experience in vibration signature analysis to the analysis of motor current in effect using the motor as a sensor akin to an acceleromeier, and demonstrate a first order approach to the theory with associated cautions.
Abstract: Recently a technique for monitoring and diagnosing mechanical problems, associated with rotating machines driven by electric motors, has been proposed and is now being offered by several commercial suppliers. This technique, known as “Motor Current Signature Analysis” or MCSA, seeks to apply much of the long experience in vibration signature analysis to the analysis of motor current in effect using the motor as a sensor akin to an acceleromeier This paper explores some of the history of the technique, presents several examples, and demonstrates a first order approach to the theory with associated cautions.

TL;DR: In this article, it was shown that substantial improvements can be made in the design of such motor drives resulting in performance characteristics which match or even exceed that of the induction machine, based on the analysis presented in this paper.
Abstract: Although design of the variable reluctance (switched reluctance( type of synchronous machine has experienced intense activity in recent years, relatively little effort has been expended on improving the torque capability of the synchronous reluctance type of motor drive. Based on the analysis presented in this paper, it appears that substantial improvements can be made in the design of such motor drives resulting in performance characteristics which match or, indeed, perhaps even exceed that of the induction machine.

TL;DR: In this article, a new approach based on the spectral analysis of the motor current Park's vector modulus was proposed for detecting rotor cage faults in operating three-phase induction machines.
Abstract: This paper introduces a new approach, based on the spectral analysis of the motor current Park's Vector modulus, for detecting the occurrence of rotor cage faults in operating three-phase induction machines. The major theoretical principles of the Extended Park's Vector Approach are described. Both simulation and laboratory test results demonstrate how the presence of rotor cage faults can be effectively detected by the application of this new approach. These results are also correlated with the ones obtained by the conventional motor current spectral analysis and by the classic Park's Vector Approach.
