No matter what happened globally, on my personal level 2017 was a great year. Here’s a short rundown of the highlights, and what’s next.
Torsional vibrations lead to oscillations in the electromagnetic torque, too. These may dampen the vibrations, but they may also do the exact opposite.
Of mechanics in electrical machines, torsional vibrations are often the most critical. Read here to learn the basic principles, and how to analyze them.
Vibrations in electrical machines can be divided into several categories, differing on the mechanism and type of vibrations produced.
You may have seen the term “second-order finite elements” mentioned once or twice. But what are they really, and where are they used? Read to learn.
Nicola Chiodetto is a PhD student at the Newcastle University developing superpowered electric motors for aircraft use. Read his interview here.
A brief introduction to my doctoral thesis titled “Circulating and Eddy-Current Losses in Random-Wound Electrical Machines”.
D.Sc. time. Soon. Hi folks! Just a brief, wholly me-centric post about, well, me today. Long story short: I recently successfully defended my doctoral thesis last Friday (15 September 2017). So, I should be officially getting my degree later this…
When analyzing electrical machines, a course, parametric mesh often outperforms a denser mesh. Here’s why, and some progress updates on the topic.
The magnetic forces in an electrical machine deform it, and the mechanical stresses influence the magnetics. Read more about this interaction here.
