Conclusion and perspectives General conclusion and perspectives
51 Conclusion The main idea: exploit the particularities of a machine to minimize the number of the network elements. Axial heterogeneity: taken into account on the stage of the network construction; the model is not a 2D model any more! Flexible and adaptive PN construction, treating: complicated geometries; irregular slot structure and distribution. Fixed rotor algorithm – rapid steady-state calculations. Software TurboTCM is modular, scalable and flexible: taking into account different machine configurations; different modes of use; easy coupling with optimization software. The results are validated for several different types of machines.
52 Perspectives Expand the approach and software to other types of electrical machines. Implementation of additional methods of air- gap permeances calculation. Further development and extension by multiphysical phenomena: Thermal circuit coupling; Vibroacoustic analysis. Taking into account the Eddy-currents and hysteresis effects.
