—The design of variable-speed electrical machines involves several fields of physics, such as electromagnetism, thermics, mechanics but also acoustics. This paper describes the analytical multi-physics models of a computer-aided design (CAD) software which is applied to inverter-fed traction induction machines. The electromagnetic model computes rotor and(More)
In this paper we present a new method to solve a constrained non-linear problem. The method is based on hybridizing the Particle Swarm Optimization and tabu-search meta-heuristics (PSO-TS). Tow tabu-lists are used within the PSO algorithm: the first one aims to diversify the best solutions obtained by particles when the second bans temporarily solutions(More)
The unsteady natural convection heat transfer of nanofluid along a vertical plate embedded in porous medium is investigated. The Darcy-Forchheimer model is used to formulate the problem. Thermal conductivity and viscosity models based on a wide range of experimental data of nanofluids and incorporating the velocity-slip effect of the nanoparticle with(More)
Fluid flow and convective heat transfer in rotor-stator configurations, which are of great importance in different engineering applications, are treated in details in this review. The review focuses on convective heat transfer in predominantly outward air flow in the rotor-stator geometries with and without impinging jets and incorporates two main parts,(More)
