Abstract

The measurement method on the basis of locked rotor tests has been developed for the estimation of magnet PWM carrier eddy current loss in synchronous machines. In the measurement, the magnet eddy current loss is separated from the other losses by subtracting the loss of the machine without the magnets from that with the magnets under the appropriate control of armature currents and voltages. The 3-D finite element analysis is also carried out in order to confirm the validity of the proposed measurement method. The measured and calculated results are found to be in good agreement. It is clarified that the magnet eddy current loss of the machine can be predicted from the results of the proposed measurement method.
