Design and Simulation of a high performance 17KW Interior Permenant Magnet Motor for traction application
The development of brushless machines would not have been possible without certain enabling technologies : in particular, power transistors, microelectronic controls and sensors, and permanent magnet materials. These components are now so highly developed that they have opened up many new opportunities for electric motor applications especially in Automotive and Aerospace segments where variable speed is required. An Interior Permenant Magnet machine is similar to a conventional brushless machine but with the addition of saliency and a reluctance torque component. The saliency can also be helpful when the motor is to operate at constant power over a wide speed range—as, for example, in drives for electric vehicles .
In this paper we can have a look on how to design and simulate an Interior Permenant Magnet motor using Simcenter Speed.
