Investigation of a thermal model for a Permanent Magnet assisted Synchronous Reluctance motor

The use of High Power Density (HPD) electric machines in applications such as Electric Vehicles amplifies the need for their optimal thermal design in conjunction with their electromagnetic design. Permanent Magnet Synchronous Reluctance Machines (PMaSynRMs) are specialized Interior Permanent Magnet Synchronous Machines where the magnet content in the flux barrier paths is reduced resulting in a relatively economical design. This paper provides the overview of a study of a thermal model for a Five Phase Permanent Magnet Synchronous Reluctance Machine with two flux barrier paths. The proposed thermal model is then verified with experimental results and FEA simulations. Once developed, its use for online temperature estimation or integrated with an optimization algorithm will be considered as future work.

Prognosis of wire bond lift-off fault of an IGBT based on multisensory approach

The safe and continuous operation of the power switches of the inverter units is vital in assisting the functioning of the inverter units. This paper proposes an algorithm for the condition monitoring and prognosis of wire-bond fault in an IGBT- extensively used power switch in inverter systems. The proposed algorithm employs both on-state collector emitter voltage and collector current in the estimation of IGBT junction temperature. These two signals complement each other as thermal sensitive electrical parameters and results in better estimation of junction temperature. This algorithm has integrated a stochastic method and Coffin Manson model to introduce criticality matrix which is used to determine the necessity for IGBT replacement. Both simulation result and experiment data verified the proposed. The proposed algorithm has the scope to be further modified for the condition monitoring of a more complex system in the future.
