Slot of electric machine
This is an example of the slot of electric machine simulation, performed with QuickField software.
Plane problem of AC magnetics.
All dimensions are in millimeters.
Relative permeability of air μ = 1;
Relative permeability of steel μ = 1000;
Conductivity of copper g = 58·106 Sm/m;
Current I = 500 A;
Frequency f = 50 Hz.
In this tutorial we will analyze the skin effect occurring at the industrial frequency 50 Hz. The resistance of the conductor, carrying 500 A sinusoidal current, in the slot of the electric machine will be calculated.
