The Calculation of the Armature Reactance of Synchronous Machines

Member, A. I. E. E.

Synopsis.-This paper presents new and simplifiedformulasfor the armature leakage reactance of synchronous machines, and compares the results obtained with tests on 100 machines of varied types. The new form?nulas are characterized by novel expressions for the end leakage and for the "air-gap" or "differential leakage" reaclances. Forimulas for zero phase-sequence reactances are also

given. The definitions of armature leakage and armature reaction reactances used are those proposed by Doherty and Nickle in 1926, and as a result the leakage reactance has a much smaller value than has heretofore been assigned to it, thus requiring a rather fundamental revision of the ordinary conceptions of the flux densities existing in the various parts of a loaded synchronous machine.

I. INTRODUCTION T HE growing interest of operating engineers in machine reactances, (as system stability and shortcircuit phenomena become continually more important), together with the recent advances in the theory of synchronous machines, make renewed consideration of the subject of reactance calculation opportune at the present time. Papers on this subject have appeared in the JOURNAL'S pages at intervals over a period of more than 20 years, each paper marking a further refinement of methods and an advance in accuracy. At first, it was customary merely to estimate the numbers of leakage lines per ampere inch of embedded and free conductor, and multiply them by the respective lengths to obtain the reactance. Later, the reactance was segregated into several distinct elements that were separately calculated. These calculations due to their greater importance and in this case, the possibility of more accurate tests have reached greater precision in connection with induction machines than with synchronous machines. Adams"11'3'14 first developed formulas for induction motor reactances, and later Fechheimer9 and Doherty and Shirley7 developed formulas for synchronous machines. In 1926 Doherty and Nickle3 presented some fundamental extensions of the theory of synchronous machines, and proposed new, more precise, definitions of armature leakage reactance and of armature reaction reactance. The present paper adopts these new definitions and develops simple formulas for the accurate calculation of the two quantities, for salient pole machines. The reactance of armature reaction is here defined as the reactance due to the fundamental sine wave of air-gap flux produced by the armature current acting alone. It is calculated by means of the curves derived by Wieseman2 from flux plots. There are two distinct for it values occurring when the it, the direct axis value oceurring values for axis of armature m. m. f. coincides with the pole axis; and the quadrature axis value, occurring when the axis

of armature m. m. f., is midway of the interpolar space. The armature leakage reactance is defined as the difference between the total, or synchronous, armature reactance and the above defined reactance of armature reaction. The distinction between the leakage and the armature reaction components of the total reactance is quite an artitrary one, since no winding can have a definite value of leakage reactance except with respect to another winding. Some distinction of this character is very desirable, however, for convenience in calculating the transient reactance, and for other purposes. The armature leakage reactance as above defined, is as nearly equal as may be, to that part of the total armature reactance which remains the same under transient as under steady conditions of operation. Following Adams' treatment of the induction motor, the armature leakage reactance of a synchronous maehine will be divided into four parts; the slot, end, zigzag, and belt leakages. Formulas for each of these will be derived in turn. As the slot leakage has been quite satisfactorily treated by Adams"1 already, the discussion of it here will be abbreviated as much as possible, consistent with the derivation of a little more exact formula, and its extension to apply to zero phasesequence currents. None of the other three elements of the leakage has been adequately treated by previous writers, so they will be given more detailed consideration. The four divisions of the reactance found useful for induction machines are followed for the two reasons that they fit in very well with the new conceptions of leakage reactance, and that their adoption will tend to wind their unify the particular the total "air-gap leakage, due to harmonics of. the air-gap flux, is segregated into the two parts called zigzag and belt leakage, respectively, in order to permit the effects of the independent variables, number of slots, and numbDer of phase belts to be separately taken into account.

and have been inapplicable to synchronous machines. Also, older formulas for end leakage have been frankly empirical in nearly all cases. All new formula for these elements will be derived by considering the leakage flux to consist of revolving magnetic fields, divided into a fundamental and a series of harmonics. In each case, the coefficient of the resulting formula will be derived from theoretical considerations alone, and no empirical multipliers will be used to bring the results into agreement with practise, although simplifying assumptions will be freely made as the occasion demands. Before proceeding to the derivation of the formulas, it is desirable to get clearly in mind the distinctions between the four elements of the leakage that have been specified. The end leakage reactance is due to the flux linking the end windings alone. The slot leakage comprises all of the flux crossing the slots due to the armature current, but does not include flux passing from tooth to tooth in the air-gap space. Evidently there is a slight error here, because the flux lines near the mouth of the slot do not pass straight across, but bulge outwards into the gap. The zigzag leakage comprises all of the space harmonics of the air-gap flux, due to the armature current in a one slot per pole per phase winding which induces fundamental frequency voltages in the armature. This includes the flux which crosses from tooth to tooth in the air-gap and interpolar spaces without actually reaching the field surface, and so takes up the leakage flux at the point at which the slot leakage lef t it. The belt leakage then comprises all the remaining fundamental frequency voltage producing space harmonics of the air-gap flux due to armature current. This last reactance is the additional reactance that an actual winding has above that which it would have if there were as many phases as slots per pole. Thus, the zigzag lealt age reactance is due to the deviation of the armature m. m. f. wave from a sinusoid, caused by the limited number of slots, and the belt leakage reactance is due to thQ further deviation caused by the limited number of phases. The belt and zigzag reactances together have been appropriately called5 the "differential leakage," since they are due to the deviations of the armature m. m. f. from the ideal sine wave. They may also be called "air-gap leakage," since they represent the difference between the total and the armature reaction components of the fundamental frequency voltage producing air-gap flux. As the differential leakage reactance varies with the relative positions of the axes of the armature m. m. f. and the poles, the armature leakage reactance varies likewise, and has a slightly higher value in the quadrature than in the direct axis.3 Formerly, the air-gap flux due to the armature current was divided into two parts, that due to the armature reaction, and that due to "tooth tip leakage."7 The armature reaction part was intended to represent the air-gap flux produced by the armature that links the

field, but the determination of this flux was erroneously based on the linkages of the armature by the air-gap flux due to the field.7 The remaining part of the total air-gap flux produced by the armature was then called tooth tip leakage. As the new definition of armature reaction includes most of this latter flux, we have abandoned the name "tooth tip" and called the small remaining part, the synchronous frequency voltageproducing harmonic fluxes, "differential leakage," as just described. Bearing in mind these conceptions of the leakage reactances which we are going to calculate, we can now proceed to the derivation of the formulas. The four components of the reactance will be taken up in the order of their difficulty, and subsequently the results of their application to actual machines will be compared with tests. II.
