Work. Pt - Sine wave - Motor - I, U

1. Positioning and objective

The aim of the test “Working point – Sine wave – Motor – I, U” is to characterize the behavior of the machine when operating at the working point which is targeted by the user. It corresponds to the base point at the imposed maximum line current and maximum Line-Line voltage.

The base point of the torque-speed curve is defined by considering the targeted input values I, U (Voltage, current). Then, this test allows deducing the performance for this working point.

The results of this test give an overview of the electromagnetic analysis of the motor considering the machine topology.

The general data of the machine, like machine constants and the power balance are computed and displayed.

The magnetic flux density is also computed in every region of the machine’s magnetic circuit to evaluate the design.

In addition, ripple torque at the base speed point is computed.

The following table helps to classify the test “Working point – Sine wave – Motor – I, U”.
