The American Petroleum Institute released the 5th Edition of the API 541, Form Wound AC Induction motor specification in December of 2014. This new revision provides updates to the motor specification in terms of performance, features and testing. It also includes expanded and improved data sheet sets to permit the more precise specification, design and testing of industrial motors.
The workshop will be split into (2) primary sections. First, an Introduction of AC Induction Motors Basics to provide a foundation for the API 541 motor discussion. Second will be an overview of the API 541 motor specifications and the updates associated with the 5th Edition of API 541.
