CEDRAT is meeting the challenge of simulating the control of an induction machine using one of its tools: Portunus — a system simulator.
This paper from Cedrat demonstrates the determination of cut-off frequencies of different proportional electromagnetic actuators in FE simulation under the consideration of eddy currents. The dynamic limits of different concepts thus can be compared in simulation already before the sampling process is started.
With the ever-increasing pressures on electric motor manufacturers to develop smaller and more efficient electric motors, there is a trend to carry out more thermal analysis in parallel with traditional electromagnetic design. It has been found that attention to the thermal design can be rewarded by major improvements in the overall performance. This paper from Cedrat reviews some of these difficult issues.
In the study of magnet machines, the research for ultimate control is a fundamental point. For this research, CEDRAT proposes three methods.
As Cedrat explains in this paper, the permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) is becoming popular in high-performance applications as compared with other types of AC motors. A short circuit between turns is the most critical fault in a machine; it is quite difficult to detect and almost impossible to remove. There are a number of techniques used to detect turn-to-turn faults.
