This is an example of the slot of an electric machine simulation, performed with QuickField software.
Plane problem of heat transfer.
All dimensions are in millimeters.
Current density j=4.5 A/mm2.
Copper electric conductivity g = 56e6 Sm/m.
Determine the temperature of the slot.
Volume power density Q = j2 / g = 360 kW/m3.
Temperature distribution in slot conductor:
