On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines. (2011)
Thesis
JOSHI, A.R. 2011. On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines. Robert Gordon University, MPhil thesis.

The on-line condition monitoring of rotating machines is given paramount importance, particularly in Oils and Gas industries where the financial implications of machine shutdown is very high. This project work was directed towards the on-line conditi... Read More about On-line measurement of partial discharges in high voltage rotating machines..

The development of condition monitoring strategies and techniques appropriate to mechanical structures. (2004)
Thesis
DRUMMOND, G. 2004. The development of condition monitoring strategies and techniques appropriate to mechanical structures. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Recent legislation, LOLER, removed the compulsion of periodical proof testing of lifting equipment to ascertain its "fitness for purpose". It has become the responsibility of a competent person to assess equipment's fitness for purpose and ability fo...

The monitoring of induction motor starting transients with a view to early fault detection. (1992)
Thesis
ELDER, S. 1992. The monitoring of induction motor starting transients with a view to early fault detection. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

The aim of this work is to investigate the possibility of detecting faults in a 3 phase Induction motor by monitoring and analysing the transient line current waveform during the starting period. This is a particularly onerous time for the machine an... Read More about The monitoring of induction motor starting transients with a view to early fault detection..
