Technical Seminar Abstract:

In December of 2014, the American Petroleum Institute (API) released its 5th Edition of the API Standard 541, Form-wound Squirrel Cage Induction Motors – 375 kW (500 Horsepower) and Larger specification. Since its first release as a recommended practice in 1972, API 541 has been commonly viewed as the premier specification for AC induction motors in the petroleum market.
This presentation will provide an overview of the API 541 specification starting with the content of the 4th Edition (which remains widely used in the industry), and then progressing to design, accessory and testing changes associated with the 5th Edition, before closing with a detailed look at the motor data sheet transformation. Questions will be welcomed throughout the seminar.
