    The high-speed and the transonic wind tunnels required high-powered (15,000-40,000 hp) fan drives capable of holding very stable constant speed for relatively long periods of time while data was being taken from the wind tunnel. These requirements could best be met by the Clymer drive system which utilizes the wound rotor induction motor with a slip energy recovery system. To recover the slip ener... View full abstract»

    The single-phase switched reluctance motor (SSRM) is presented as a robust and rather economic solution for fractional power-load applications where a low-starting torque is required. This work discusses the principle of operation of the SSRM, the prototype design, driving strategy for starting and steady state operation, modeling and simulation results, steady-state measurements, and performance ...

    This article outlines the designs and some applications of special brushless synchronous motors (SBSMs) with constant exciting current but self-stabilizing cosphiap(1) for oil-field pumps. The study includes the technical and economical reasons for replacing the induction motors (IMs) of distant sucker-rod oil pumps (SRPs) with the SBSM, (as reliable as IM), to save energy and improve stability an...

    The integrated starter alternator is an AC alternator with an electronic rectifier in which the functions of the starting engine and the generation of electric power are fulfilled by one electric machine on a vehicle, instead of two separate electric machines as in a traditional automotive vehicle. The objective of this article is to provide a guideline to ISA engineers and other automotive engine... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the two motor designs namely weather-protected type II (WPII) and totally enclosed fan-cooled (TEFC) motors specifically employed in a variety of harsh, contaminated environments of the petrochemical industry. These two motor designs are fundamentally different in everything from cooling methods to maintenance. Although there are many motor applications within the industry i... View full abstract»

    This article discusses the relationships between the various factors and bearing selection and helps the reader understand the tradeoffs involved in the various applications of antifriction bearings and suggests alternate solutions. A new toroidal roller bearing design may offer some advantages and these bearings in electric machines support and locate the rotor, keep the air gap small and consist... View full abstract»

    This paper studies the series of 22 test runs performance for bearing damage assessment due to inverter-induced bearing currents. The influence of bearing current amplitude and type, calculated apparent bearing current density, time of operation, and inverter switching frequency on bearing damage was investigated. The degree of electrical bearing stress W was introduced. The degree of melting of t... View full abstract»
