Baldor Basics: Motors - December 2016
Edward Cowern, P.E.
The article "Baldor Basics: Motors" appeared in the December 2016 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.
Beginning with this initial installment — and with the gracious permission of ABB/Baldor Electric — we are pleased to announce the beginning of a new series — Baldor Basics: Motors. This is a collection of basicsdriven, motor-intensive articles authored by former Baldor engineer Edward Cowern, PE — a respected name by many in the electric motor industry. During his tenure at Baldor, Cowern — now enjoying his retirement — was tasked with producing a number of motor- and basics-related tutorials, primarily in response to a steady flow of customer questions regarding motors. Today’s customers continue to ask questions and seek answers to address their various motor-related issues. As with Cowern’s original introduction to the series, we hope you find these articles useful and would appreciate any comments or thoughts you might have for future improvements, corrections or topics.
