Multi-Slice Skewed Model of Brushless Synchronous Alternator Using MagNet
The paper presents a specific simulation model for the analysis of brushless synchronous alternators with skewed stator. Modeling implementation is based on a simultaneous multi-slice technique. The model enables the simulation of the alternator’s overall performance under various load conditions, taking into account the effect on damper bar design for skewed stator. The model is also compared to the single-slice multi-run case at which the effect of skewing the stator is modeled in the post-processing calculations.
