windage loss

windage loss

[′win·dij ‚lȯs]
(engineering)
In a ventilating or air-conditioning system, the decrease in the water content of the circulating air due to the loss of entrained droplets of water; expressed as a percentage of the rate of circulation.

windage loss

A loss of fine droplets of water which are entrained by circulating air; this loss of water in a system (e.g., in the cooling tower of an air-conditioning system) is replaced by makeup water; usually expressed as a percentage of the circulation rate.

The iron loss, friction loss and windage loss can be calculated from the operating speed of the motor, but the magnet and copper losses are functions of stator current which should be derived based on the electromagnetic torque.
The mechanical losses include friction loss [W.sub.F] due to bearing friction, and windage loss [W.sub.W] because of air resistance, which is primarily caused by the cooling fan.

Unlike frictional loss, windage loss increases non-linearly with speed.
The total motor power loss SAP is defined as the sum of the stator copper loss ([[DELTA]P.sub.Cus]), the stator stray load loss ([[DELTA]P.sub.dods]), the core loss ([[DELTA]P.sub.Fe]), the friction and windage loss ([[DELTA]P.sub.m]), the rotor copper loss ([[DELTA]P.sub.Cur]) and the rotor stray load loss ([[DELTA]P.sub.dodr]).
OEM specification compliance reduces windage loss, optimizes electric generating capacity, reduces air emissions, extends equipment life and reduces contamination and corrosion for enhanced reliability.
According to Praxair, Proton's HOGEN hydrogen generators are capable of producing byproduct-free hydrogen from electricity and water as well as increasing the efficiency of a utility's electric generators by reducing windage loss.
The motor efficiency is discussed with the friction and windage loss models.
According to the formula given in the previous section, mechanical loss (windage loss) is not related to [L.sub.bi] and it is 3,286W for the simulation machine.
In particular, the friction and windage losses drop rapidly as the speed is reduced.
* Viscous drag, also called windage losses, which are related to velocity (Fig.
* Integrated dry sump oiling reduces internal windage losses, and an integrated oil reservoir on the lower left side of the crankcase helps to keep the engine compact.
