© 1963-2012 IEEE.Early diagnosis of interturn short circuit (ITSC) fault is essential to prevent catastrophic electrical machine failures. Along with the detection, locating the faulty winding at its incipient stage is also critical to reduce the outage duration and operation losses. This article proposes a practical method to detect the ITSC fault and locate the faulty winding in permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSMs) through stray magnetic flux monitoring. It is shown that relying on the fundamental stray flux component can potentially underperform at certain operating conditions leading to fault negative error. To compensate this shortcoming, the third harmonic component of stray flux is comprehensively analyzed and proposed as a complementary ITSC fault indicator. Furthermore, its reliability over the wide range of motor operation is verified to eliminate potential fault negative errors. It is also shown that the proposed method is independent of the fault severity which is a major advantage for practical applications. The findings are supported through 2-D-FEA PMSM drive system simulations and experiments under two different fault severity cases.

Complete test generation method for all stuck-at faults in combinational circuits
GURAN, HASAN; HALICI, UGUR (Informa UK Limited, 1990-5)
In combinational logic circuits the generation of complete fault detection test sets requires the determination of the complete test sets of all possible stuck-at faults. In this study, an efficient procedure is developed for finding all the complete test sets of all possible single stuck-at faults in a combinational circuit. The developed procedure primarily uses the properties of logic gates. An example is solved by the use of the developed procedure.

Klein, DM; Yukihara, EG; Bulur, Enver; Durham, JS; Akselrod, MS; McKeever, SWS (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2005-08-01)
This paper demonstrates the feasibility of a portable radiation sensor system that uses the pulsed optically stimulated luminescence technique to remotely interrogate an aluminum oxide (Al2O3:C) radiation sensor via an optical fiber. The objective is to develop a system for applications requiring simple and inexpensive sensors for widespread monitoring of ionizing radiation levels, which can be remotely interrogated at regular periods with little or no human intervention and are easy to install, operate, an...
A Dual-Resonator Temperature Sensing Approach With Time Base Error Suppression
Kaya, Onurcan; Azgın, Kıvanç (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2020-01-15)
In this study we present a novel dual-resonator temperature sensor which can be embedded in other MEMS sensors for improved thermal compensation and on-the-run calibration. For accurate temperature measurements, the proposed method mitigates time base errors in frequency counting, eliminates the need for a highly accurate reference clock and can cancel out the effects of aging of the time base without using a calibration process. The sensor structure is composed of a strain amplifying beam and two Double En...
A Modular Real-Time Fieldbus Architecture for Mobile Robotic Platforms
Saranlı, Uluç; Oeztuerk, M. Cihan (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-03-01)
The design and construction of complex and reconfigurable embedded systems such as small autonomous mobile robots is a challenging task that involves the selection, interfacing, and programming of a large number of sensors and actuators. Facilitating this tedious process requires modularity and extensibility both in hardware and software components. In this paper, we introduce the universal robot bus (URB), a real-time fieldbus architecture that facilitates rapid integration of heterogeneous sensor and actu...
A Simple Real-Time Fault Signature Monitoring Tool for Motor-Drive-Embedded Fault Diagnosis Systems
Akin, Bilal; Choi, Seungdeog; Orguner, Umut; Toliyat, Hamid A. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2011-05-01)
The reference frame theory constitutes an essential aspect of electric machine analysis and control. In this study, apart from the conventional applications, it is reported that the reference frame theory approach can successfully be applied to real-time fault diagnosis of electric machinery systems as a powerful toolbox to find the magnitude and phase quantities of fault signatures with good precision as well. The basic idea is to convert the associated fault signature to a dc quantity, followed by the com...
