STARTING TEST: The fan shall be capable of starting from rest at ≤65 volts.

M/S R.Kanwar This Clause is contradictory to Cl. No. 8.6.2 of the said spec., because as per this Cl. No. 8.3 the Fan should be start at ≤ 65 volts and as per Cl. No. 8.6.2 the Fan should be tripped when the input voltage is less then 65V and shall be restart automatically whenever the voltage is above 70V.

RDSO’s comments To avoid frequent start and stop of BLDC fan due to battery voltage fluctuation, ≤75 volts is considered in place of ≤65 volts Modified clause The fan shall be capable of starting from rest at ≤75 volts

As such your Honour is requested to kindly modify the starting voltage as ≤ 70 volts instead of ≤ 65 volts & restarting voltage 75 V instead of 70V. M/S LEC The tolerance of 5v should allowed due to inherent tolerance value of components. 8.5

ELECTRICAL INPUT TEST:

M/S R.Kanwar

The electrical input in watts to the fan shall be determined by The Electrical Input Test shall be the running the fan at rated voltage. However input watts at applicable at Rated Voltage i.e. other voltages i.e. 90, 100, 120, 130 and 140 V shall also be 110 VDC for Routine & recorded for reference purpose.

As such the same may kindly be mentioned in the spec. clearly.

RDSO’s comments As these tests are required to be done only during prototype test, ‘During prototype test’ is added at the last. Modified clause The electrical input in watts to the fan shall be determined by the running the fan at rated voltage. However input watts at other voltages i.e. 90, 100, 120, 130 and 140 V shall also be recorded

Capability to withstand input of 200V DC without any damage to any part of the BLDC fan for two minute shall also be provided.

M/S LEC Electrical Input in watts at rated voltage only should be in routine & acceptance tests. However RDSO during Type test can record input watts at other voltages. M/S R.Kanwar The OVP shall be provided at 150 VDC ± 2% and shall be restart automatically whenever the voltage comes down to 145 VDC ± 2%.

This shall be tested for 30 minutes during type test and for 2 minutes during routine and acceptance test. 8.9

LOCKED ROTOR TEST: This test shall be conducted after heating test of the magnet and reverse polarity test. The fans shall be subjected to the highest value of the voltage range i.e. 140V for one hour with the armature in the locked conditions providing external means to arrest the rotation of fan. The fan under this condition shall draw no appreciable current. After the removal of the lock condition, the fan shall start automatically or switching OFF and ON the power supply.

It is desirable that air delivery shall not be varied in the during Routine Testing means on voltage range from 90V to 110V. each & every fan, where as this has already been included in the Acceptance Test also, we expect that this can be deleted both from the Routine & Acceptance Tests. If the following facts are considered. This testing may kindly be based on the RPM & Input Wattage of the fan i.e. when the RPM of the fan under testing is more the RPM and Input Wattage is either same or less of the fan specified during Type Testing. Accordingly the minimum RPM and Input Wattage may kindly be specifically be mentioned / specified during Type Testing for AD Test. M/S LEC Air Delivery Test: It is mentioned that air delivery shall not be varied in voltage range from 90V to 110V. According to LEC the Air delivery will vary within the voltage range. Air delivery shall be checked at the rated voltage only at 110V.

RDSO’s comments Based on discussion, Clause amended Modified clause This test shall be conducted as per Clause No.19.2 of IS: 6680. This test shall be conducted at 90 volts, 110 volts and at 140 volts during prototype test. In any case, air-delivery shall not be less than 5% of air-delivery at rated voltage.
