Abstract

We present a new method of controlling the operational wear of the starter used for transport. The new method consists in making use of the magnetic field in the armature gap as a diagnostic signal for determining fitness for use. Testing the starter with the Hall sensor involved recording the voltage course obtained from the sensor, which was commensurate with magnetic induction. The tests were carried for the unloaded starter, i.e., while running idle, as well as for the loaded one. As part of the experiment, simulation of different kinds of operational wear and selected simulated failures of starter elements were carried out. The objective of this study is to elaborate a diagnostic model for the operational control of the starting system for motor transport. View Full-Text
