Improved 3-D Analytical Model for Axial-Flux Eddy-Current Couplings With Curvature Effects


An improved 3-D analytical model for axial-flux permanent-magnet eddy-current couplings is presented in this paper. As the problem is solved in a 3-D cylindrical coordinate system, the proposed model directly takes into account the radial edge effects and the curvature effects on the torque prediction without the need of any correction factor. It is shown… (More)
