CALCULATION OF INDUCTANCES OF INDUCTION MACHINES UNDER AXIAL NON-UNIFORMITY CONDITIONS
Hamid Reza Akbari - Siavash Sadeghi - Arash Hassanpour Isfahani
A modified model for calculating the inductances of induction machines, considering axial non-uniformity is proposed.
By means of the proposed model, inductances of a three-phase squirrel-cage induction machine under eccentricity and
misalignment conditions are calculated. The effects of stator and rotor slots, rotor skewing and several rotor
asymmetries on inductances in these conditions are investigated.
