A 1000 kW/19 200 rpm wound-rotor synchronous machine has been designed as a draft based on 2-D transient finite-element method (FEM). The magnetic fields distribution, the iron losses, the electromagnetic torque and the terminal characteristics of the prototype machine are investigated in this paper by using 2-D finite element analysis. The d-axis inductance Ld and the q-axis inductance Lq of the sample machine are predicted in analytical models. All studies indicate that the wound-rotor synchronous machine is potential to apply in high speed generator or motor application.
