ABSTRACT A finite element method, coupled field-circuit, is applied to design a solid rotor induction motor in this paper. And a model coupled with field-circuits has been set up for considering the velocity effect, eddy current effect and non-linear property. A new end-region coefficient is presented to correct the effect of end region. It makes designed results of the motor more accurate. The method makes the period of design short and saves hardware from computing three-dimensional non-linear model. The comparison between tested and computed results proves that the method has higher accuracy and validity.

    ABSTRACT: The paper presents the Lorentz force and Maxwell stress formulas that give the same result of global force calculation for FE method. Edge element method (EEM) using vector potential $A$ and nodal element method (NEM) using scalar potential $\Omega$ are considered. The formulas have been obtained from virtual work principle that has been adapted to the FE model. The FE network must be regular of homogenous element to obtain the equivalent formulas for EEM and equivalent formulas for NEM. The results of force calculation using the proposed methods have been compared with the analytical results. The systems with three cuboidal magnets and an induction motor with solid rotor described in TEAM Workshops Problem No. 30 were analyzed. Moreover, repulsive forces in the systems presented by TEAM Workshops Problem No. 7 and in the system with two ring-shaped magnets have been investigated.

    ABSTRACT: The paper deals with analytical method of design and prediction of performance characteristics for induction motors with solid steel rotor coated with copper layer. On the basis of the distribution of the 2D electromagnetic field, the equivalent impedance of the rotor have been derived. The edge effect and nonlinear magnetic permeability of solid steel have been included. The presented analytical method has been verified with laboratory test results. A 300 kW, 60 000-rpm, three-phase solid rotor induction motor for air compressor has been investigated. The accuracy of analytical approach is acceptable and can be recommended for rapid design of solid rotor induction motors.
