IEEE Guide for Testing Permanent Magnet Machines

Instructions for conducting tests to determine the performance characteristics of permanent magnet (PM) machines are contained in this guide. Motors and generators may have the described tests applied as needed, and no attempt is made to partition this guide into clauses applying to motors and clauses applying to generators. It is not intended that all possible tests, or tests of a research nature, shall be covered by this guide but only those general methods that may be used to obtain the performance data. The schedule of factory and field tests, which may be required on new equipment, is normally specified by applicable standards or by contract specifications. This guide should not be interpreted as requiring any specific test in a given transaction or implying any guarantee as to specific performance indices or operating conditions.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.


No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.


No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.


No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.


No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

IEEE Trial-Use Guide for Testing Permanent Magnet Machines

Contained in this trial-use guide are instructions for conducting tests to determine the performance characteristics and machine parameters of permanent magnet (PM) machines. The tests described may be applied to motors and generators, as needed, and no attempt is made to partition this guide into clauses applying to motors and clauses applying to generators. It is not intended that this guide shall cover all possible tests, or tests of a research nature, but only those general methods that may be used to obtain the performance data and machine parameters. The schedule of factory and field tests, which may be required on new equipment, is normally specified by applicable standards or by contract specifications. This guide should not be interpreted as requiring any specific test in a given transaction or implying any guarantee as to specific performance indices or operating conditions. The term specified conditions for tests as used in this guide will be considered as rated conditions unless otherwise agreed upon. Rated conditions apply usually to the quantities listed on the machine nameplate.
