Thermal Analysis and Test for a High Speed PM Machine for Fan Application
For a give air flux, the higher speed the fanner is running, the smaller the fanner’s size is. It is also well known that for a given power, the higher the machine’s running speed, the smaller the machine’s size has. If the fanner is geared to a high speed machine directly, the fan set’s volume will be sharply decreased. However, the heat dissipation of the high speed machine becomes a serious problem also due to the small size and high power loss density. Therefore, how to estimate accurately the power losses and temperature rise is a key issue for the high speed machine design. In this paper, the power losses and temperature of high speed PM machine for a fanner application are thoroughly investigated. And the test results of a prototype fan set partly shown the validity of the calculation method.
