Transient thermal computation for Reluctance Synchronous Machines

A new test is available for characterizing the transient thermal behavior of the Reluctance Synchronous machine while applying a power step.

The aim of “Characterization – Thermal – Motor & Generator – Transient” test is to evaluate the impact of electromagnetic performance on thermal behavior of the machine in a transient mode.

The thermal working point defined by the speed and a set of losses can be considered to compute the temperature charts and the main thermal parameters, like the heat capacities and the thermal time constants.
