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: In this article, a small sphere spinning in a rotating magnetic field is analyzed in terms of the resulting magnetic flux density distribution and the current density distribution inside the ball. From these densities, the motor torque and the eddy current losses can be calculated. An analytical model is derived, and its results are compared to a 3D finite element analysis. The model gives insight into the torque and loss characteristics of a solid rotor induction machine setup, which aims at rotating the sphere beyond 25 Mrpm.

    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 2-D electromagnetic field, the equivalent impedance of the rotor has 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 the next generation air compressor has been investigated. The accuracy of analytical approach is acceptable and can be recommended for rapid design of solid-rotor induction motors.

    ABSTRACT: The paper presents a two-dimensional (2-D) analytical method in the complex domain for the computation of magnetic field distribution, eddy-currents, circuit model parameters and study states performances in solid rotor induction motors. The proposed static analytical model takes into account stator slotting with tooth-tips. The rotor motion is simulated by varying the slip. The analytical magnetic field distribution is computed in polar coordinates from 2-D subdomain method (i.e., based on formal resolution of Maxwell’s equations applied in subdomain) in each region, i.e. semi-closed stator slots, air-gap, solid rotor and shaft. The electromagnetic torque is obtained from both the electrical equivalent circuit (EEC) and Maxwell stress tensor that is given by the magnetic field distribution. Analytical results are validated by the static finite-element method (Fem).
