    In this paper, a novel type of hybrid reluctance motor (HRM) drive is presented. This new motor is characterized by a stator formed by a combination of independent magnetic structures, each one composed of an electromagnet, the magnetic core with one or several coils wound on it, associated with a permanent magnet disposed between their poles. The rotor has the same configuration of a switched reluctance motor (SRM) without any coil, magnets, or squirrel cage. A particular case of this HRM, with three electromagnets with permanent magnets in the stator and five salient poles in the rotor, is studied. The motor is then analyzed and simulated. Finally, experimental results are given, and this type of motor drive is compared with the SRM drives of the same size. This new type of HRM does not present cogging torque and has higher power and efficiency than an SRM of the same size.

    In the next years is expected an important rise in sales of electrical scooters in the entire world but especially in China. In order to address this challenge the electric scooter industry has to be more competitive in the transportation market and therefore important improvements, in terms of energy density and costs, have to be done in the electric storage system and in the electric propulsion system. In this paper, an analytical and experimental comparison of two different drives for electric scooters is carried out. Both are permanent magnet synchronous outer rotor motor drives but one placed inside the rear wheel and the other connected to the wheel trough a mechanical transmission

    Herein is reported development and testing of a life cycle analysis (LCA) procedure for assessing the environmental impact of induction motors. The operating conditions of a given industrial application are defined by the mechanical power required, operating hours and service life of the three-phase induction motor involved. Based on manufacturer’s data mainly,different three-phase induction motors for various sets of operating conditions, including oversizing, have been selected. To quantify the environmental impact of each motor, the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy Using Products (MEEUP) was applied, according to the quantity of each of the motor’s main constituent materials used in the production phase, and to the two operating variables that directly influence the LCA results: output power and efficiency. The procedure was applied to different three-phase induction motors representing two efficiency categories (IE1 and IE2) and considering different oversizing possibilities. The total environmental impact of each motor was determined based on the production, service life and end-of-life phases. The best motor option was identified for different operating conditions. Given the potential for energy savings in electric motors, LCA-based environmental impact assessment should be performed when different motors are being evaluated for a given industrial application.

    Purpose Herein is reported an application of life cycle analysis (LCA), using the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy Using Products (MEEUP), in order to assess the influence of some design parameters in the environmental impact of three-phase induction motors. A motor design procedure to minimize the total environmental impact, based on data obtained from commercial motors, is presented. This procedure is specially intended for the low power range due to the greater potential for energy savings in motors having an output power of 0.75 to 4 kW. Methods A procedure has been developed, based on previously acquired data, to determine the parameters required for application of the MEEUP methodology. These comprise the quantity of each of the motor's main constituent materials used in the production phase, and the two operating variables that directly influence the LCA results: output power and efficiency. Results and discussion The procedure was applied to two 1.5 kW induction motors of different efficiency (according to standard IEC60034-2-1). The calculation results were compared satisfactorily with the laboratory test results. The total environmental impact of the two real motors and of the proposed motor was determined in the production, service life, and end-of-life phases.

    The prediction of switched reluctance motor (SRM) performance requires knowledge of core losses. However, the calculation of iron losses in SRM is especially complex first because the flux waveforms are nonsinusoidal and different parts of the magnetic circuit have different waveforms and second because they are conditioned by the type of control used. This study proposes an analytical method for calculating core losses that comprises simulation of the SRM using finite element analysis to determine the magnetization curves, and SRM modeling, which enables transient simulations with the associated electronic power converter run under different control strategies. The flux density waveforms in the different parts of the SRM are derived from the flux density waveform of the stator pole that is obtained from the transient simulation. The specific core losses (in W/kg) are separated into three parts (hysteresis losses, classical eddy current losses and excess losses) and calculated using the waveforms and time derivatives of the local flux density. The core losses for each part of the SRM’s magnetic circuit can be estimated using the calculated values for specific hysteresis losses, specific classical eddy current losses and specific excess losses for each zone. Adding these individual losses yields the total core losses. The method was applied to three-phase 6/4 SRM, and the calculated results were compared with experimentally obtained measurements.

    In this study two electromagnetic analytical models have been developed. From this models the main magnetic and mechanics characteristics are obtained, and also permit getting the principal dimensions of the LSRM. From this results a prototype has been built, which has been examined by means of finite elements and experimental tests which corroborate the validity of the contributed analytic models. The study contains the status of art and the classification of the linear actuators as well as the genesis of the LSRM from the rotative counterpart. The LSRM performance is simulated in a Matlab/Simulink simulation model. This model allows us to know the influence of the position shot for the phase current on the average force and therefore the optimal interval conduction phase current. Chapter 2 deals with a new electromagnetic model obtained from analytical simple expressions which permit analyzing and obtaining parameters with a reduced computational cost. Also is studied the endeffects (fringe effects) by analytical expressions and by finite elements. With the objective of quantifying the aforementioned effect on the linked flux versus current characteristic, a correction method is developed. Chapter 3 investigates the influence of the geometric dimensions on the profiles of force and inductance using the method of the finite elements. The geometric relations that optimize the average force are reported. Chapter 4 presents the study of the principal losses of the LSRM, mainly iron losses and copper losses. Once losses have been obtained, an analytical thermal model of lumped parameters is developed from which the thermal behavior is predicted. Chapter 5 presents a systematic methodology for designing the LSRM. This methodology allows us to obtain the main parameters (electric, magnetic, mechanic and geometric), from the given design specifications. The methodology is validated by finite elements. In chapter 6 the analytic models are validated by the construction and essay of a prototype. The experimental results validate the contributions made in this study.

    En esta Tesis se hacen contribuciones al estudio, a la caracterización y al dimensionamiento de los motores lineales de reluctancia autoconmutados de flujo longitudinal y topología plana. En el capítulo 1 el estudio contiene el estado del arte y una clasificación de los accionamientos eléctricos lineales. A continuación se desarrollan los principios fundamentales del motor de reluctancia autoconmutado rotativo (SRM) a partir de una estructura magnética de reluctancia elemental. Seguidamente en base a la estructura del SRM se efectúa una génesis del motor lineal de reluctancia autoconmutado (LSRM), se presentan las ecuaciones que lo caracterizan y se propone un modelo para explicar su comportamiento utilizando el entorno MATLAB/Simulink. En el capítulo 2 se aborda el análisis magnético del LSRM utilizando tres procedimientos distintos. El primero de los cuales se basa en la determinación del área del ciclo de conversión de la energía, en el cual la curva de magnetización en la posición no alineada se representa por una línea recta mientras que la curva de magnetización en la posición alineada es representada por dos líneas rectas. Mediante este procedimiento se determina la ecuación de la fuerza de propulsión media del LSRM en función de la densidad de flujo magnético en los polos del estator, de la densidad de corriente y de la geometría del motor. El segundo procedimiento consiste en analizar el circuito magnético mediante parámetros concentrados considerando la saturación y los efectos asociados a las cabezas de bobina. Finalmente, el tercer procedimiento es el análisis magnético mediante elementos finitos en 2D corregido para tener, también, en cuenta los efectos relativos a las cabezas de bobina. En el capítulo 3 se realiza un análisis de sensibilidad investigando la influencia de las principales dimensiones geométricas sobre los perfiles de fuerza e inductancia del LSRM, utilizando el procedimiento de análisis magnético mediante elementos finitos en 2D corregido para considerar de los efectos asociados a las cabezas de bobina. A partir de los resultados obtenidos se obtiene las relaciones geométricas que optimizan la fuerza media de propulsión. En el capítulo 4 se estudian las pérdidas en el hierro y de las pérdidas en el cobre en el LSRM. Desarrollándose, seguidamente, un modelo analítico de parámetros concentrados que describe el comportamiento térmico del LSRM., mediante el cual será posible predecir las temperaturas máxima y media en función de las pérdidas totales. En el capítulo 5 se realiza, en base a los resultados obtenidos en los capítulos anteriores, una propuesta de dimensionamiento del LSRM que facilita un diseño optimizado de los principales parámetros eléctricos, magnéticos, mecánicos y geométricos a partir de unas determinadas especificaciones de diseño. En el capítulo 6 se presentan los resultados experimentales efectuados en el laboratorio, sobre un prototipo de LSRM, construido en base a los estudios precedentes, que validan las propuestas efectuadas en la Tesis. Finalmente en el capítulo 7 se recogen a modo de conclusión las principales aportaciones de esta Tesis y se sugieren futuras líneas de investigación.

    In this paper, switched reluctance motors (SRM) are proposed as an alternative for electric power assisted steering (EPAS) applications. The new 42 V power voltage system is a very attractive design for a steering electric motor, both from a cost and size perspective. A four-phase 8/6 SRM drive is designed for a rack type EPAS which should provide a maximum force of 10 kN. Two-dimension finite element analysis is used to validate the design.

    This paper compares the environmental and life cycle impact of one switched reluctance motor (SRM) drive and two inverter-fed induction motor (IM) drives. The study was carried out according to the Directive on the Ecodesign of Energy-Using Products (EuP 2005/32/EC) and following the Methodology for the Ecodesign of Energy-Using Products (MEEUP). The following base-case models were used: an IM (Eff3), an IM (Eff1) and an 8/6 SRM. All of these base-case models are rated at 1.5 kW of output power and are considered to be representative of the low-power range. The analysis shows that SRM drive has a lower environmental impact than the IM drives and offers a high savings potential, comparable to, or even greater than that of the IM (Eff1) in the use phase.

    La implementación de microcentrales hidroeléctricas en zonas subdesarrolladas permite acceder a la energía eléctrica a comunidades rurales, cuando las dificultades para disponer del suministro a partir de las líneas eléctricas de transporte son insalvables por motivos de aislamiento o de coste económico. Previo análisis general de estas microcentrales, presentaremos los resultados más relevantes en un estudio práctico para la posible implementación de una microcentral en Perú, concretamente en el pueblo de Chambamontera, provincia de Jaén. El estudio realizado ha tenido la cooperación del organismo de colaboración técnica internacional llamado ITDG-Perú, que ha proporcionado información acerca de la localización geográfica para la microcentral. Aún así, debido a las dificultades para disponer de datos suficientes sobre el terreno donde se debería construir la microcentral, en el estudio no se han determinado los componentes que conciernen a la obra civil. Aún así se ha descrito, en parte, los componentes y las tecnologías más apropiadas para la microcentral, centrándose el estudio principalmente en la selección de los componentes eléctricos, como son la turbina hidráulica, el generador y el transformador. Además, se propone utilizar un método de gestión para pequeños sistemas eléctricos aislados para analizar la posible viabilidad económica. Los resultados presentados forman parte del proyecto final de carrera realizado por Jaime Castellano en la EPSEVG y tutorizado por Marcel Torrent del Departament d’Enginyeria Elèctrica de la UPC.

    A current-controlled switched reluctance motor drive for a variable speed applications with efficiency optimization is presented. Firing angles are computed online, the turn-on is calculated by means of the rule of Bose, and the tur-off is calculated using the general theory of the optimal turn-off angle proposed by Gribble. In steady state operation, the initial selection of firing angles is fine-tuned by means of an algorithm that minimizes the input power of the drive. An efficiency and electrical energy consumption comparison with a commercial vector-controlled induction motor drive of the same size is also included. Experimental results show that the proposed switched reluctance motor drive is a good choice for applications that require slow varying loads and energy savings.
