Design and Manufacturing of IPM Synchronous Motor for Field Weakening Operation
Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Rotor designs for permanent magnet synchronous machines suitable for field weakening operation have been evaluated for use with an existing drive system. The designs have been simulated with the FEM-based software Finite Element Method Magnetics (FEMM). Based on the results two different internal magnet rotors have been constructed and tested. Both designs significantly improved the speed range while maintaining or improving magnet utilisation. The implementation of field weakening algorithms in drive electronics is complex and need thorough optimisation for stable operation. Internal permanent magnet rotors are a good alternative to surface mounted designs and enables a wider speed range through improved field weakening capabilities.
