EASA’s AC Motor Redesign manual explains how to make all possible changes in the ratings of AC electric motors, within design limitations. Besides mathematical formulas, it provides guidelines on the limitations for each type of redesign. These are useful in determining whether a desired new rating is possible before the motor is stripped. Terms are expressed in both English and metric units. Each chapter contains at least one example to guide you through your own redesigns. The publication also is available in Spanish.

This book is also available as a FREE download.
