This paper briefly describes an approach to determine the optimum magnetic circuit parameters to minimize low speed torque ripple for switched reluctance (SR) motors. For prediction of the torque ripple, normalized data obtained from field solution and a neural network approach is used. Comparison of experimental results with computations illustrates the accuracy of the method. The optimization method is briefly described and some results are presented.


Pressure prediction on a variable-speed pump controlled hydraulic system using structured recurrent neural networks
KILIÇ, Ergin; Dölen, Melik; Çalışkan, Hakan; Koku, Ahmet Buğra; Balkan, Raif Tuna (Elsevier BV, 2014-05-01)
This paper presents a study to predict the pressures in the cylinder chambers of a variable-speed pump controlled hydraulic system using structured recurrent neural network topologies where the rotational speed of the pumps, the position and the average velocity of the hydraulic actuator are used as their inputs. The paper elaborates the properties of such networks in extended time periods through detailed simulation- and experimental studies where black-box modeling approaches generally fail to yield accep...
Streamwise oscillations of a cylinder beneath a free surface: Free surface effects on vortex formation modes
Bozkaya, Canan; Mironova, L. A.; Gubanov, O. I. (Elsevier BV, 2011-06-15)
A computational study of a viscous incompressible two-fluid model with an oscillating cylinder is investigated at a Reynolds number of 200 and at a dimensionless displacement amplitude of A = 0.13 and for the dimensionless forcing cylinder oscillation frequency-to-natural vortex shedding frequency ratios, f/f(0) = 1.5, 2.5, 3.5. Specifically, two-dimensional flow past a circular cylinder subject to forced in-line oscillations beneath a free surface is considered. The method is based on a finite volume discr...
Exact and FDM solutions of 1D MHD flow between parallel electrically conducting and slipping plates
Arslan, Sinem; Tezer, Münevver (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-08-01)
In this study, the steady, laminar, and fully developed magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) flow is considered in a long channel along with the z-axis under an external magnetic field which is perpendicular to the channel axis. The fluid velocity u and the induced magnetic field b depend on the plane coordinates x and y on the cross-section of the channel. When the lateral channel walls are extended to infinity, the problem turns out to be MHD flow between two parallel plates (Hartmann flow). Now, the variations of u...
Differential quadrature solution of nonlinear reaction-diffusion equation with relaxation-type time integration
Meral, G.; Tezer, Münevver (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
This paper presents the combined application of differential quadrature method (DQM) and finite-difference method (FDM) with a relaxation parameter to nonlinear reaction-diffusion equation in one and two dimensions. The polynomial-based DQM is employed to discretize the spatial partial derivatives by using Gauss-Chebyshev-Lobatto points. The resulting system of ordinary differential equations is solved, discretizating the time derivative by an explicit FDM. A relaxation parameter is used to position the sol...
Least-squares differential quadrature time integration scheme in the dual reciprocity boundary element method solution of diffusive-convective problems
Bozkaya, Canan (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Least-squares differential quadrature method (DQM) is used for solving the ordinary differential equations in time, obtained from the application of dual reciprocity boundary element method (DRBEM) for the spatial partial derivatives in diffusive-convective type problems with variable coefficients. The DRBEM enables us to use the fundamental solution of Laplace equation, which is easy to implement computation ally. The terms except the Laplacian are considered as the nonhomogeneity in the equation, which ar...
