- Presently, many condition monitoring techniques that are based on steady-state analysis are being applied to Induction motor. However, the operation of induction motor is predominantly transient, therefore prompting the development of non-stationary techniques for fault detection. In this paper we apply steady-state techniques e.g. Motor Current Signatures Analysis (MCSA) and the Extended Park’s Vector Approach (EPVA), as well as a new transient technique that is a combination of the EPVA, the Discrete Wavelet Transform and statistics, to the detection of turn faults in a induction motor. It will be shown that steady-state techniques are not effective when applied to induction motor operating under transient
