Design and Finite Element Analysis of High-Density Torque Induction Motor for Traction Applications

The paper presents the design and FEM simulation of a novel induction motor intended as a specialized drive for electric traction and/or airborne propulsion applications. Several particular requirements related to the size, weight and dynamics did rise non-conventional challenges and therefore a less-than classical approach have been considered. The proposed solution consists in a combination of an external rotor mated with an internal stator with ring coils. Furthermore, the coils arrangement may be reconfigured on-the-fly, allowing operation with two distinct synchronous speeds (different number of poles), solution which largely fulfills all the requirements.
