Abstract

DC winding induced voltage pulsation in wound field switched flux (WFSF) machines causes DC winding current ripple and field excitation fluctuation, challenges the DC power source and deteriorates the control performance. Hence, reducing this pulsation is important in the design of a WFSF machine. In this paper, based on the analytical models, rotor skewing and rotor iron piece pairing are proposed and comparatively investigated by the finite element (FE) method to reduce the on-load DC winding induced voltage in WFSF machines having partitioned stators and concentrated AC windings. FE results show that peak to peak value of the on-load DC winding induced voltage in the analysed 12/10-pole partitioned stator WFSF (PS-WFSF) machines can be reduced by 78.42% or 77.16% by using rotor skewing or rotor pairing, respectively, whilst the torque density can be maintained by >90%. As for the 12/11-, 12/13- and 12/14-pole PS-WFSF machines, by using rotor iron piece inner arc pairing, the on-load DC winding induced voltage can be reduced by 64.11%, 52.12% and 76.49%, respectively, whilst the torque density can also be maintained by more than 90%. Prototypes are built and tested to verify the analytical and FE results.
