ANALYSIS OF AN AXIAL FLUX PERMANENT MAGNET MACHINE (AFPM) BASED ON COUPLING OF TWO SEPARATED SIMULATION MODELS (ELECTRICAL AND THERMAL ONES)
Eva Belicová - Valéria Hrabovcová
The paper deals with a transient thermal analysis of an air-cooled AFPM machine with a one rotor-two stators configuration. Two separated models of the machine are coupled: an electrical model and a thermal one. In calculation, the change of the stator winding resistance affected by the temperature rise is taken into account. Analysis is made for a 5 kW AFPM machine.
