Practical Strategies for Improved Cooling of Electrical Motors and Generators

  title={Practical Strategies for Improved Cooling of Electrical Motors and Generators},
  author={D. Staton and D. Hawkins and Mircea Popescu},
Thermal analysis is becoming a more important aspect of the electric motor and generator design process due to the push for reduced weights, costs and increased efficiency. This paper reviews recent published examples of use of software to improve the cooling of various motor and generator designs. Details of the cooling system used are given in the form of thermal models to highlight the most important cooling paths and features of the particular designs. Comparisons are made with test data… Expand
