Abstract:


This paper presents the analytical modeling of permanent magnet induction generator (PMIG) used in green energy (i.e. Wind energy). This analysis, is based on analytical modeling in determining the essential parameters for the magnetic field in the PMIG. A 2-D field analysis is presented which takes the permanent magnet leakage, the distribution of the MMF across the magnet height, equivalent width determination, flux density components, and its fundamentals by depending on Helm-Holtz, and Maxwell equations with using the separation of variables technique, and Fourier expansion for gap flux density. Thus, solving a set of PDE equations at boundary conditions at machine regions will provide a set of hyperbolic equations allowing determining the explicit magnetic field coefficients. Then, the expressions of the global quantities (MMF, cogging torque, and electromagnetic torque) are deduced from the expressions of the analytical study for the magnetic field distribution. The presented analytical modeling helps, as a first aim, to explore rapidly the search space of potentially optimal prototypes.
