Sizing methodology based on scaling laws for a permanent magnet electrical variable transmission

Author

Abstract
This paper discusses a method to design an electrical variable transmission of which the stator and inner rotor contain a distributed three-phase winding, and the outer rotor is equipped with permanent magnets and a DC-field winding. The main problem with the design of electrical variable transmissions is that the modeling relies on time-consuming finite element calculations. Studying the effect of design changes is, therefore, a cumbersome task. To minimize the need for finite element calculations, scaling laws are applied, which reduce the computational effort to a matter of milliseconds per design. Therefore, the losses of multiple scaled designs can be analyzed for a given load cycle while taking constraints into account such as maximum torque. By presenting this data in a performance map, the optimal design regarding the losses is easily deduced. To validate the presented methodology, finite element calculations, measurements and available literature are used.
