Info Page - Induction Machine Editor


You can specify the induction machine ID, connected Bus, In/Out of Service, Equipment FDR (feeder) Tag, Name,
Description, load Priority, Data Type, Configuration Status, Quantity of induction machines, Phase Connection, and
Demand Factor within the fields of the Info page.

Info
ID
Enter a unique ID with up to 25 alphanumeric characters.
ETAP automatically assigns a unique ID to each induction machine. The assigned IDs consist of the default induction
machine ID plus an integer, starting with the number one and increasing as the number of induction machines increase.
The default induction machine ID (Mtr) can be changed from the Defaults Menu in the menu bar or from the Project
View.

Bus
This is the ID of the connecting bus for the induction machine. If the terminal is not connected to any bus, a blank entry
will be shown for the bus ID. To connect or reconnect an induction machine to a bus, select a bus from the list box. The
one-line diagram will be updated to show the new connection after you click on OK. Note: you can only connect to
buses that reside in the same view where the induction machine resides, i.e., you cannot connect to a bus that resides in
the Dumpster or in another composite network.
If an induction machine is connected to a bus through a number of protective devices, reconnection of the induction
machine to a new bus in this editor will reconnect the last existing protective device to the new bus, as shown below
where Mtr3 is reconnected from Bus10 to Bus4.

ETAP displays the nominal kV of the bus next to the bus ID for your convenience.

Condition
Service
The operating condition can be set by clicking on the radio buttons for either In Service or Out of Service. The
engineering properties within the editor of an Out of Service element can be edited like an In Service element; however,
an Out of Service element will not be included in any system studies. When the continuity check is activated, an Out of
Service element is automatically color coded with the deenergized color (theme manager). The default color for a
deenergized element is grey.
Note: The In/Out of Service option is independent of the configuration status. Therefore, you can set a branch to be In
Service for the Base Data and Out of Service in Revision Data.

State
State is used to describe the service status of an element. Certain states have flexible service status like As-Built, New,
Future, Moved and Modified can be both In or Out of Service. Certain states have fixed service status like Removed,
Warehouse, Abandoned, Repair Shop and Other are out of service states.

Equipment
Tag #
This allows the user to enter the the feeder tag in this field, using up to 25 alphanumeric characters.

Name
This allows the user to enter the equipment name, using up to 50 alphanumeric characters.

Description
This allows the user to enter the equipment description, using up to 100 alphanumeric characters.

App. Type
Select the application type (either motor or generator) for this induction machine type.

Data Type
This field provides a convenient way to track data entry. Select one of the data types (such as Estimate, Typical, Vendor,
Final, etc.) from the pull-down list. As the data is updated, this field can be changed to reflect the source of the latest
data. There are a total of ten load types. To change the data type names, navigate to the Project Menu, point to Settings
and select Data Type.

Priority
Select the load priority of this machine from the drop-down list. This field can be used for load priority, operating
priority, load-shedding priority, etc. Ten different priorities are allowed. To change priority names, from the Project
Menu, point to Settings and select Load Priority.

Lock / Unlock
Click to lock / unlock the editor properties of the current element. When the editor properties are locked, all engineering
data is displayed as read-only expect condition information. The user can change condition information (service & state)
even though the element properties are locked.

Select the operating status of the induction machine(s) for the selected configuration status from the list box. Options for
operating status include:
Status
Continuous
Intermittent
Spare

Description
Continuously operating load
Intermittently operating load
Spare load (no short-circuit contribution)

Depending on the demand factor specified for each operating status, the actual loading of the machine is determined for
load flow and machine starting studies.
Note: status is not a part of the machine engineering properties. For this reason, the name of the configuration status is
shown, indicating the machine status under the specific configuration, i.e., you can have a different operating status
under each configuration. In the following example, status of a machine is shown to be Continuous under Normal
configuration and Spare under Emergency configuration.

Connection
Phase
This is the phase connection of the induction machine. Select the phase connection type from the list box. Options for
phase connection include:
Selection
3 Phase
1 Phase

Description
Three-phase machine
Single-phase machine connected between phase A, B or C.
Single-phase machine connected line-to-line between phases AB , BC or CA

Quantity
Enter the quantity (number) of induction machines for this machine ID. This allows you to group identical machines
together without a need for graphical presentation in the one-line diagram. View the explanations below to see how
ETAP handles Quantity in Load Flow, short-circuit, Arc Flash, and Sequence of Operation.
Load Flow:
Notice in the following example of a load flow calculation the current at Bus 2 is equivalent to the sum of each current
going to each load at bus 4. This occurs because the quantity of Motor 1 is changed to three. ETAP simulates the effect
of what you see in the system powered by U2 without having to display each load.

In the diagram above, the fuse is red which is showing a critical alert. In the alert view below, Fuse1 is shown to be
operating at 156.569. The critical alert for the protective device used on a load with a quantity greater than one is based
on the operating current calculated by the characteristics of a single load.

Short-Circuit:
In the following short-circuit analysis Motor 1 is contributing 1.13kA to the system. Because Motor 1 has a quantity of
three, that current is three times the current that would be seen with a single motor. The load terminal fault current is
shown as the current for each load.

In the diagram above, the fuse is red which is showing a critical alert. In the alert view below, Fuse1 is shown to be
operating at 30.645. The critical alert for the protective device used on a load with a quantity greater than one is based on
the operating short-circuit current calculated by the characteristics of a single load.

Sequence of Operation
You cannot run Sequence of Operation if you have a Quantity greater than one. Sequence of Operation is not used to run
simultaneous faults on loads.

Arc Flash
In the following Arc Flash example, the bus Arc Flash characteristics of Bus 2 is equal to Bus 4. The reason is that
Motor 1 has a quantity of three which is a quick way of showing what you see in the system under Utility 2.

The Arc Flash Analysis report shows the incident energy at the terminal of Motor 1 is equal to the incident energy of the
terminal at each motor in the equivalent One Line View. The incident energy of a motor with a quantity greater than one
is shown as the incident energy calculated by the characteristics of a single load.

Demand factor
Modify the demand factors for Continuous, Intermittent, and Spare status in the provided entry fields. Demand factor is
the amount of time the induction machine is actually operating. Demand factor affects the following calculations:

z
z

Operating kW = Rated kVA * PF * % Loading * Demand Factor


Operating kvar = Rated kVA * RF * % Loading * Demand Factor

This pertains when the PF & RF (power factor and reactive factor) are calculated based on the specified % loading from
the power factors specified at 100%, 75%, and 50% loading.
Demand factors for Continuous, Intermittent, and Spare status have a range from 0% to 100%. Since demand factors are
a part of engineering properties, ETAP uses the same factors for all configurations.
