Magnetomotive force (MMF) distribution in the air gap produced by a current [i.sub.a] flowing in any coil a (stator or rotor windings) is as follows:
For this case, 260 Amp-turns constitute the coil magnetomotive force. The simulation results are shown in Figure 3, which is a cross-section of the B-field strength in the plane of the gap.
Where, [N.sub.f] and [N.sub.s] are effective turns of the field windings and the stator windings, respectively; [F.sub.f] is the magnetomotive force; R is the reluctance of the flux line direction and M is the mutual induction between rotor and stator windings [16].
Despite the differences of poles number, slots number, and the coiling form of the 3-phase AC motor, the physical model of stator can be described as in Figure 1 for the symmetry of the magnetic circuit and the magnetomotive force (MMF) generated by powered winding.
The fundamental harmonic of magnetomotive force (mmf) created by each rotor bar is:
and the calculated magnetomotive force of permanent magnets by rated temperature
The value of the magnetomotive force (MMF) [F.sub.[delta]] of the stator winding, which causes the value of magnetic induction in the air gap depends on the value of the stator current I flowing through the N turns of the coils of the stator winding.
The leakage inductance is proportional to magnetomotive force between the windings that acts in air gap of core [5] (Fig.
Specifically, due to the slot harmonic effect on the magnetic pull [27] and the elliptical rotating magnetomotive force caused by the asymmetric 3-phase currents [28], the stator will be dragged into an ellipse form after a long period performance [27,28].
