Part of the book: Induction Motors
This chapter deals with the basics of vibration calculations in electrical machines. It includes a brief introduction to the sources of vibration in electrical machines. In addition, the construction of electric machines is briefly summarized. It also describes the influence of individual parts of electric machines on vibration generation. The chapter also deals with the important steps that need to be taken when calculating vibration signal waveform using finite element method (Ansys). The individual sections summarize the most important requirements for setting the vibration calculation and it also deals with minimizing the calculation errors.
