Multiphysics analysis of a stator construction method in yokeless and segmented armature axial flux PM machines

Abstract
Increasing performance requirements for electrical machines such as energy efficiency and torque density require a multiphysics design approach. In these designs, many machine parts very often combine multiple functions, such as electromagnetic, thermal, and mechanical, to keep the design compact and reduce the overall weight, or introduce nonconventional materials in electrical machines. In this paper, epoxy potting techniques are used to keep the different stator parts of a yokeless and segmented armature axial flux PM machine together, and it focuses mainly on the multiphysics aspects of the epoxy resins as well as on their implications on the overall stator design. In this multiphysics design approach, the effect of specific epoxy resin parameters such as maximum service temperature, thermal conductivity, Brookfield viscosity, tensile strength, and coefficient of thermal expansion, on the electromagnetic, thermal and mechanical behavior of the stator are examined. Epoxy resin parameters are evaluated in detailed experiments on small test samples, and finally, measurements on a full prototype 4 kW, 2500 rpm stator are performed.
