Equivalent circuit analysis of solid-rotor induction machines with reference to turbocharger accelerator applications.

Bumby, J. R. and Spooner, E. and Jagiela, M. (2006) 'Equivalent circuit analysis of solid-rotor induction machines with reference to turbocharger accelerator applications.', IEE proceedings : electric power applications., 153 (1). pp. 31-39.


Theoretical, numerical and experimental studies are described that have been carried out to develop a solid-rotor induction machine design for a particularly demanding application as an accelerator drive for a diesel engine turbocharger. In this application the turbo-motor will be required to operate at speeds of up to 130 000 rpm and in temperatures that can exceed 200°C. The results show that the equivalent circuit gives predictions that are of sufficient precision for design purposes and provides a useful design tool. It is shown that the use of a solid rotor affects the value of the stator leakage reactance and influences the motor performance through this effect as well as by presenting a high rotor resistance.
