The experiments are carried out using machines of industrial manufacture. All the test machines are equipped with a special base for attachment to the Machine test system 0.3. The system allows the characteristics of the machines under test to be recorded. Power for the machines under test is provided either directly from the mains or via special laboratory power supplies.

Motors with slip-ring rotors (wound rotor motors) represent a type of asynchronous induction machine. Unlike squirrel cage rotor machines a slip-ring rotor is in the form of a three-phase winding attached to a slip-ring and accessible from the outside via brushes. Wound rotor motors are preferred for use in drives which require high torque but low starting current. Asynchronous machines with slip-ring rotors are increasingly being replaced with conventional machines featuring squirrel cage rotors fed via a frequency converter. Such drives achieve similar operating response to slip-ring rotor motors but they are easier to manufacture and avoid wear to the slip contacts, which undergo both mechanical and electrical wear and tear.
- In order to protect against overheating, the stator windings of the test machines are equipped with temperature sensors
- Should overheating occur, the machine testing system automatically shuts down the machine under test, thus preventing any damage to it.
- The test machines are equipped with an educationally designed terminal board with the winding configuration printed on it.
- The ends of all the windings are connected to the terminal board and can be accessed via 4-mm safety sockets.
- Computer-supported acquisition of measurement data provides for meaningful measurement results.
The individual equipment set is equally suitable for student experiments in laboratories with low voltage supplies (400 V three-phase) and for setting up on a mobile trolley for demonstration by teachers in a classroom. The procedures for the experiments are provided in a printed manual.
The target group is made up of commercial apprentices and students of electrical machine construction. The course offers experiments at an intermediate level and also allows for the necessary insight into machine behaviour for scientific interpretation at undergraduate level.
The motor may only be connected in star (Y) configuration to the 400 V mains.
