Measurement and CFD prediction of heat transfer in air-cooled disc-type electrical machines

Abstract:

Accurate thermal analysis of axial flux permanent magnet (AFPM) machines is crucial in predicting maximum power output. Stator convective heat transfer is one of the most important and least investigated heat transfer mechanisms and is the focus of this paper. Experimental measurements were undertaken using a thin-film electrical heating method, providing radially resolved steady state heat transfer data from an experimental rotor-stator system designed as a geometric mockup of a through-flow...
