The executive summary of our Deliverable D3.1 Preliminary Induction Motor Design is now available in our deliverables section.

The deliverable is divided in four main sections.

  • Section 1 (Introduction), it is presented the logic of the design process and how various parameters are selected to act in concert to meet the specified requirements, including rotor and stator dimensions, number of slots / poles / bars, optimal winding pattern and materials to be used.
  • Section 2 (CR-IM Electromagnetic Design) describes the first pass design with various motor configurations, when the number of poles is changed. The design analysis is based on a hybrid 2D Finite-Element Analysis (FEA) method and analytical magnetic equivalent circuit.
  • Section 3 (CR-IM Mechanical Analysis) describes the dimensions and speed limits from the mechanical stress and modal analysis point of view. The analysis makes use of 2D/3D FEA models and analytical expressions.
  • Section 4 (CR-IM Thermal Analysis) describes the first pass design with various motor configurations, when the cooling system comprises a stator water jacket, a rotor cooling jacket and/or an oil spray cooling system. The design analysis is based on a lumped analytical thermal network method, validated with 2D FEA method.

In the executive summary you will find a summary of the work done and a first performance indicators analysis!
