Interior permanent-magnet synchronous motors (IPMSMs) are suitable for small-size light traction drives due to their rugged and compact construction, high torque and power densities, good efficiency as well as operability over a wide speed range at constant power. This paper presents a bi-objective particle-swarm-optimized (PSO) design of a small three-phase concentrated-winding IPMSM for light traction applications. The PSO design is thus formulated as a constrained optimization problem of maximizing the IPMSM energy efficiency, while minimizing the weight of its active parts.

Experimental investigation of shaft transducerless speed and position control of ac induction and interior permanent magnet motors
Goksu, Omer; Hava, Ahmet Masum (2010-01-01)
In order to drive AC motors with high efficiency and high motion performance, and to provide accurate speed/position control, motor shaft speed and/or position feedback is required. For this purpose, usually transducers (encoder, tachogenerator, resolver, etc.) are installed on the shaft. However, transducers are not preferred in most of the applications since they increase the cost and decrease the reliability of the drive due to their failure prone structure and connections. In such applications, the spee...
Design optimization of variable frequency driven three-phase induction motors
Ertan, B; Leblebicioğlu, Mehmet Kemal; Simsir, B; Hamarat, S; Cekic, A; Pirgaip, M (1998-01-01)
An approach to optimize the design of three-phase induction motors for a wide speed range drive is considered. Two operating points in the speed range are taken into consideration. The problem is handled as a constrained optimization problem. An accurate model for the motor in terms of its dimensions has been developed which predicts the motor performance based on about 60 parameters of motor geometry.
Calculation of core losses of a six-phase induction motor with third harmonic current injection
Büyükbaş, Afşin; Ertan, Hulusi Bülent; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2004)
The advantages of using a six-phase induction motor for industrial drives, over the conventional three-phase drive can be summarized as improved reliability, reduction on the power ratings for the static converters and harmonic reduction. A technique of injecting third harmonic zero sequence current components in the phase currents to improve the machine torque density was presented recently by another research study. However, to meaninigfully evaluate the performnce of such machines and/or to be able to ma...

The permanent magnet motors have become essential parts of modern motor drives recently because need for high efficiency and accurate dynamic performance arose in the industry. Some of the advantages they possess over other types of electric motors include higher torque density, higher efficiency due to absence of losses caused by field excitation, almost unity power factor, and almost maintenance free construction. With increasing need for specialized PM motors for different purposes and areas, much effort...

Uğur, Mesut; Keysan, Ozan (2018-10-25)
In this study, design procedure of an Integrated Modular Motor Drive (IMMD) is presented focusing on high power density. The design is based on a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) and GaN FETs. Fractional slot concentrated windings are used on the stator. Slot/pole combination and winding configuration is selected based on having low cogging torque and high winding factor. An extended motor drive inverter topology is proposed where 2-level voltage source inverters are connected both in series and pa...
