It is extremely essential to balance all the elements of an engine. Additionally, one should also ensure that the rotating sections of the engine are well balanced so that they prevent untimely damage, heat and friction in the vehicle. This is even more necessary for the high speed engines. The rotating parts exert a force from the engine and this is proportional to the rotating speed of the engines. This means that if the vehicle speed increases up to 3 times, the force is likely to increase 9 times. When the different elements are not balanced well, the vibration caused by them will be extremely high. This would further result in the driver’s discomfort and lead to the engine’s damage. Following are some of the things that can happen to your vehicle when its elements are unbalanced.
Unbalance of voltage
In a three-phase supply which is caused by unbalance in the plant’s equipment. This causes excessive rise in the vehicle’s temperature and eventually leads to motor failure. If your voltage is unbalanced up to 3.5 percent, it can approximately lead to a rise of 25 percent in the vehicle’s temperature. Voltage should be checked on a frequent basis to avoid the unbalance. If the cause of this unbalance is not found, the size of the motor should either be reduced or oversized.
Unbalance in elements of the engine can also lead to severe vibration. In this regard, this should be noted that tension in the belt and increased vibration are one of the main causes of motor failure. The elements and mechanics of the engine should be checked from time to time in order to avoid this issue. One should also be well trained according to the latest and best procedures for apt maintenance of the vehicle. This in turn will reduce the scopes of vibrations in all the operating systems.
Over loading of the motor
When the load of a motor is unbalanced, it leads to motor overloading. The broken gears or the completely frozen bearings are also equal culprits of this overload. If your running vehicles trip on a regular basis, it is essential for you to chronically disconnect the engine’s motor from its operating line. Right after that, you can rotate and address the problem accordingly. If your motor has a service factor of 1.15, do not run it at its cushion factor, i.e 15% on a regular basis. This cushion is only present for temporary levels of overload.
