These two subsets of an electric machine [1] is called an annular magnetic gap which circulates a cooling fluid.
Initially, we studied the flow of air in to the smooth air magnetic gap for different rotor speed and for different axial velocities of air.
The latter studied the stability of an incompressible viscous flow in the magnetic gap formed by coaxial cylinders of infinite length and rotation without axial flow.
Heat transfer in this space called magnetic gap is influenced by the speed of rotation of the rotor, the speed of air blowing, the temperature gradient between the stator and rotor, the surface roughness.
For this geometry fluted (corrugated rotor or stator) the Taylor number is modified taking into account the shape of the corrugated (form factor): F - geometric factor based on the work of [3]; [omega] - the speed of rotation, rd/s; e - thickness of the magnetic gap, m.
It is observed for the same axial velocity of air, the temperature evolution takes the same shape along the rotor, whatever speed and whatever the value of the magnetic gap.
The length of the magnetic gap is calculated simply from the water velocity for the required minimum exposure of water to the magnetic field; then the number of successive units is determined for the given length of one magnet.
The magnetic energy over the magnetic gap between the solenoid 1 and the ball 2 (Figure 4) is a sum of the useful component and the dispersion component:
The effects of magnetic shell permeability changes and magnetic gap variations are eliminated as temperature dependent elements in a well designed filter structure.
The ribbon-shaped aluminum wire enables JBL to precisely specify the number of coil windings in the magnetic gap, optimizing motor force for high efficiency and reducing distortion.
Specifically, MagneMotion deploys attractive magnetic force which can be controlled to levitate the vehicle, maintaining a magnetic gap between permanent magnet arrays on the vehicle and steel on the guideway.
Spider-less Design -- A traditional subwoofer uses a spider that is connected to the voice coil of the speaker, which keeps the coil aligned/centered while it moves in the magnetic gap.
