In this paper, we investigate the eddy current losses in permanent magnets in a surface mounted magnet synchronous machines. A 2D analytical method is presented to calculate the losses due to the time and space harmonics. The validation of the analytical model is led through a 3D finite element method. The proposed method is then applied in case of a generator charging a battery through a full-wave bridge rectifier.


Analytical Computation of the Instantaneous Transient Magnetic Flux and Eddy Current Losses in the Armature of a Magnetic Actuator
Raminosoa, Ando; Chillet, Christian; Fassenet, Marylin; Yonnet, Jean-Paul (2011-09-10)
An analytical method for computing the instantaneous transient magnetic flux and the eddy currents losses in the armature of an actuator driven by current is proposed. The analytical method consists in modeling the armature by a circuit with reluctances and "eddy inductances". The difference between this work and the previous ones is the fact that the analytical expressions of reluctances and "eddy inductances" are identified from the Joule effect losses and the magnetic energy in the studied armature, when...
Magnetic Susceptibility-Based Protein Detection Using Magnetic Levitation
Yaman, Sena; TEKİN, HÜSEYİN CUMHUR (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2020-09-01)
Magnetic levitation, which is a magnetic phenomenon of levitating particles suspended in a paramagnetic liquid under a nonuniform magnetic field, is a powerful tool for determining densities and magnetic properties of micro- and nanoparticles. The levitation height of particles in the magnetic field depends on the magnetic susceptibility and density difference between the object and the surrounding liquid. Here, we developed a magnetic susceptibility-based protein detection scheme in a low-cost and miniatur...
Magnetic Resonance - Electrical Impedance Tomography (MR-EIT) Research at METU
Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat (2006-09-01)
Following development of magnetic resonance current density imaging (MRCDI), magnetic resonance - electrical impedance tomography (MR-EIT) has emerged as a promising approach to produce high resolution conductivity images. Electric current applied to a conductor results in a potential field and a magnetic flux density distribution. Using a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system, the magnetic flux density distribution can be reconstructed as in MRCDI. The flux density is related to the current density distr...
Permanent magnet design and image reconstruction algorithm for magnetic resonance imaging in inhomogeneous magnetic fields
Yiğitler, Hüseyin; Eyüboğlu, Behçet Murat; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2006)
Recently, the use of permanent magnets as magnetic field sources in biomedical applications has become widespread. However, usage of permanent magnets in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is limited due to their inhomogeneous magnetic field distributions. In this thesis, shape and geometry optimization of a magnet is performed. Moreover, placement of more than one magnet is optimized to obtain desired magnetic field distribution in specific region of space. However, obtained magnetic field distribution can n...
Analysis and Fault Tolerant Control of a Five-Phase Axial Flux Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machine
Bayazıt, Göksenin Hande; Keysan, Ozan; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2021-9-06)
This study investigates the fault-tolerance capability of an air-cored, axial flux, five-phase permanent magnet synchronous machine. The air-cored stator is designed by adopting a novel winding topology that is called flat winding. The coils of flat winding are made by bending and grouping one within another of the flat wires made of a laser-cut thin aluminum sheet. This topology provides superior current ratings, better cooling performance, and a robust structure for the stator. As the coils are covered w...
