Identifying the hot spots in an electrical machine is a critical step in the electromagnetic design process. Failure of this diagnosis can result in significant damages to the machine. However, a detailed thermal analysis of an electric machine can be extremely time consuming. Therefore, a new approach called Thermal Impulse Response (TIR) modelling is proposed to estimate the temperature of various parts in an electric machine. Use of TIR modelling will improve the simulation time significantly. Simulation and experimental results are carried to support the proposed method.


On modelling of microwave heating of a ceramic material
KOZLOV, P. V.; Rafatov, İsmail; KULUMBAEV, E. B.; LELEVKIN, V. M. (2007-05-07)
A simple model is proposed and tested for simulations of ceramic processing by microwave heating. The model is based on a piecewise constant approximation of the material properties and makes it possible to separate and analyse different effects caused by the sample shape and the dependence of the material properties on temperature. Specifically, the simulation results demonstrate that microwave heating of an alumina sample can be very sensitive to a variation of its dielectric constant with temperature. Fo...
Fault Identification of Rotating Electric Machines using Comparative Analysis Methods
Balan, H.; Vadan, I.; Buzdugan, M.; Botezan, A.; Karaissas, P. (2011-09-10)
The analysis of the electrical machines operation, usually appeals to monitoring and diagnosis techniques, the operation faults involving electrical, mechanical and aero-dynamical parameters modification. The mechanical faults are due mainly to the unbalance of the rotating parts of the electrical machines and their analysis can be carried out using the vibration amplitude versus time and/or the vibration speed versus frequency characteristics. This paper presents a fault identification method, using a comp...
Optimal Control of a Smart Beam by Using a Luenberger Observer
Onat, Cem; Şahin, Melin; Yaman, Yavuz (2013-06-26)
This paper presents the design of an optimal vibration control mechanism, namely an LQR controller, with a Luenberger observer for a smart beam having surface bonded piezoelectric sensors and actuators. The approach intends to suppress the vibrations of the first flexural resonance of the smart beam. The smart beam studied was a cantilever aluminium beam with eight surface bonded Lead-Zirconate-Titanate (PZT) patches in bimorph configuration. The smart beam was excited at its first resonance frequency (appr...
Thermal analysis of switched reluctance motor with direct in-winding cooling system
Rahman, Nasim Arbab; Bostancı, Emine; Fahimi, Babak (2017-01-12)
Demand for compact high torque/power density electric machines necessitates the choice of an effective cooling system. The focus of this paper is to compare the steady-state thermal analysis of a naturally air-cooled conventional 8/6 SRM to the same motor with direct in-winding cooling system. The goal is to determine how much torque increase can be achieved by using direct cooling in the windings slots. The results show that the direct cooling of the winding guarantees lower temperature in the windings by ...
Thermal rectification behaviour of some small quantum systems
Zervent, Selahittin Atılay; Turgut, Sadi; Department of Physics (2021-9-10)
Thermal rectification behaviors for some small quantum systems are studied by using the Lindblad master equation. From the underlying Hamiltonian dynamics of the composite quantum systems consisting of small quantum systems and reservoirs, Lindblad master equations are obtained by using certain approximations. Optimum operation parameters are determined for a single two-level and two two-level quantum systems. It is shown that there is no thermal rectification behavior when the contact between two reservoir...
