Abstract

When considering common methods of calculating the end turn reactance of concentrated modular windings, significant effects are seen due to the presence of core iron that are not accounted for in many methods. Experimental study and 3-D Finite Element work is carried out to accurately model end turn reactance. A method of accurately predicting end turn reactance with significantly reduced solving and modeling time is developed and tested against experimental results. A parameterized equation is then developed allowing the calculation of end turn reactance for any concentrated modular winding configuration within the prescribed limits. Finally, a method of reducing end turn reactance through the use of concentric coils is developed.
