1. Positioning and objective
The aim of the test “ Working point – Sine wave – Generator – I, Ψ, N” is to characterize the behavior of the machine when operating at the targeted input values I, Ψ, N (Magnitude of current, Control angle, Speed).
These three inputs are enough to impose a precise working point.

The results of this test give an overview of the electromagnetic analysis of the machine considering its topology.
The general data of the machine, like machine constants, power balance and magnet behavior are computed and displayed. The generator convention is used to build the model.
The magnetic flux density is also computed in every region of the machine magnetic circuit to evaluate the design.
When both the following conditions are met this test allows to perform electromagnetic computations with coupled thermal analysis.:
 The type of machine is Synchronous Machine with Permanent Magnets with Inner rotor
 One of the two following thermal solving modes is selected: One iteration or iterative solving mode.
Two computation modes are available:
 “Fast computation mode” is perfectly suited for the predesign step (Hybrid model based on MagnetoStatic Finite Element computations and Park transformation theory)
 “Accurate computation mode” is perfectly suited for the final design step (Pure Finite Element modeling based on transient computations)
It also gives the capability to make comparisons between the results obtained from the measurements and those obtained with our solution.
The following table helps to classify the test “Working point – Sine wave – Generator – I, Ψ, N”.
