Energies, Vol. 15, Pages 5729: Solid Rotor Core vs. Lamination Rotor Core in Fractional-Slot PMSM Motor with High Power Density (Energies)

Fractional-slot PMSM motors allow for obtaining high values of power density factors, but at the same time, they are characterized by high values of rotor losses—in the rotor core and permanent magnets. The main causes of rotor losses in this type of motor are subharmonics and a high content of higher harmonics in the distribution of the magnetomotive force MMF. The use of a solid rotor core simplifies the construction and technology of the rotor but eddy current losses in the core account for a significant percentage of the total rotor losses. It is well known that a laminated core reduces eddy currents, while for motors with an outer rotor, it complicates the construction and increases weight. Thus, the question arises about the necessity to use a laminated core in a high power density motor and the real benefits of this. The article presents a comparison of the motors with a solid rotor core and a laminated rotor core, considering the value of rotor losses, power density factor, efficiency and the range of rotational speed and range of current load. The analysis was carried out for various types of sheets for laminated core and solid steel and SMC (Soft Magnetic Composite) material for solid rotor core. FEM models were used in the analysis, and the results were partially verified with the results of laboratory tests of motor models. The object of the analysis is a fractional-slot PMSM motor with an external rotor with surface permanent magnets (SPM). Motor weight is about 10 kg, and the maximum power is 50 kW at 4800 rpm.
