This article discusses the actual failure rate of electronic components when these are exposed to harsh environments, which can include vibration, dust, humidity, high temperature and others. It presents a compilation on the physico-chemical effects that can take place when electronic components are stressed and how such effects can reduce the component(More)
Voltage sag is the most important power quality problem. The classical solution to protect industrial processes against voltage sags is based on the use of a large series voltage compensator (SVC), such as the dynamic voltage restorer. Although the SVCs are a general solution, in most cases alternative measures should be checked before purchasing such an(More)
Belt conveyors constitute an efficient and economical way for minerals and heavy-load transportation from mines to their destination, serving vital process units whose success depends on continuous operation. To meet important operational requirements, modern high-capacity conveyor systems are equipped with medium-voltage variable-speed induction motor(More)
The demand for high speed electrical machines has increased recently, mainly in the electric or hybrid vehicles applications. Speeds as high as 13.000 rpm may be required, demanding new grades of electrical steels with improved magnetic properties. Such magnetic properties are typically characterized using parameters such as and ⁄ . However, improvements in(More)

Voltage sag is one of the most important power quality problems affecting sensitive industrial equipment. Control panels consist of one or several units of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC), Contactors and Adjustable Speed Drives. These devices are all sensitive to voltage sags. When a voltage sag occurs, a contactor could trip or a PLC could reset while(More)
In underground mining industry, mineral transportation from lower levels to the surface is critical, thus demanding thorough equipment selection. The dc motor driven hoist dominated these applications, providing superior controllability. However, due to its increasing popularity, ac drive systems replaced dc application, including in mine hoisting. The high(More)
