AC Motor Technologies, Inc. has provided many classes on “Brushless Exciters, Operation & Repair “. This covers the roles of the exciter and motor during starting. The rectifier construction, operating characteristics, Test Instructions, Test Equipment guidelines, and “Preferred Practices” for making repairs and up-grades are included. This is usually a one or two-day event and should include “hands-on” repair and testing.
A usual limitation at Service Centers is the AC power supply used in starting synchronous motors. These supplies are set up for Induction motors and require a little manipulation to successfully start a synchronous machine. A separate exciter field supply is also required. The techniques and field supply details are described and demonstrated.
