Fig. 1 Model representing electric machine structure. Use the same assumptions of the electric machine model as in the lecture notes. Question 1 When a current i passes through the rotor winding, it produces a surface current density distribution K = u z k (ϕ )i at the rotor-airgap interface. Apply Ampere’s Law and Gauss’

Law to find the radial B-field in the airgap, when k(ϕ)=+C for 0 < ϕ <π and k(ϕ)=-C for π < ϕ <2π

C represents the constant number of conductors per radian. The positive and negative sign represents the direction of flow of the current i through the rotor winding. Sketch the distribution of k(ϕ) for 0 < ϕ <2π. Sketch the distribution of the radial B(ϕ) field for 0 < ϕ <2π. [Hint: Use the technique in the class notes.

The rotor winding of dc machines, which will be in ECSE 462, has the same conductor distribution. It produces a triangular B-field, which you also should get. Question 2 The conductor distribution in Question 1 is a square wave, since k(ϕ)=+C for 0 < ϕ <π and k(ϕ)=-C for π < ϕ <2π

Apply Fourier analysis to obtain K = u z i ∑ Ak cos kϕ + Bk sin kϕ .
k =1

Therefore, from the result obtained in the lecture notes, the radial B field is iR ∞ ⎧ A sin kϕ Bk cos kϕ ⎫ B = u r μ 0 ∑ ⎨− k + ⎬. g k =1 ⎩ k k ⎭
provided you have computed the Fourier coefficients Ak and Bk for k=1,2,.. [Check: Ak’s are all zero. Even Bk’s are all zero. ] Write a program (MATHLAB or alternate) to compute N iR N ⎧ A sin kϕ Bk cos kϕ ⎫ K = u z i ∑ Ak cos kϕ + Bk sin kϕ and B = u r μ0 ∑ ⎨− k + ⎬ using g k =1 ⎩ k k ⎭ k =1 summations of k=1,3..N.

Plot the distribution of K(ϕ) for 0 < ϕ <2π. Plot the distribution of the radial B(ϕ) field for 0 < ϕ <2π. In order to know at what value of N you can terminate the summation, make plots for N=9, 19, 199. [This question is intended to make you revise your Fourier Series also.]
Question 3 For a new winding, the B-field in the airgap has this Fourier Series representation: iR N ⎧ B cos kϕ ⎫ B = u r μ0 ∑ ⎨ k ⎬ . For practical reason, the infinite series is terminated at N. g k =1 ⎩ k ⎭

What is magnetic energy of the current i? [ You need to compute Wm = where Magnetic energy : wm =

Question 5 The B-field in the airgap is: iR N ⎧ B cos kϕ ⎫ B = u r μ0 ∑ ⎨ k ⎬ g k =1 ⎩ k ⎭ The current is i = I cos(ωt ) where ω=2πf, the frequency f being 60 Hz. Resolve the Bfield into forward and backward travelling waveforms for each harmonic number k. What are the speeds of rotation in rpm (rotations per minute) for each k ?
