The reluctance force is produced by interaction of stator magnetomotive forces (mmf) and a reluctance variation produced by a toothed reactive part.
Despite that windings of the investigated motors are identical only in part (windings of the same type, 2[p.sub.1] = 2[p.sub.2], [Z.sub.1] = [Z.sub.2]), the instantaneous spatial distributions of rotating magnetomotive forces generated by them are identical at any moment of time, as it can be seen from Fig.
On the basis of Table II, the electrical diagram layout of the investigated six-phase motor winding and the instantaneous distribution of rotating magnetomotive force generated by this winding were plotted.
This paper presents investigation of two types windings for six-phase induction motor, shows elaborated connection of winding sections and comparison of two types concentrated double layer windings: short pitch coil six-phase winding and full pitch coil six-phase winding, calculation and analysis of developed magnetomotive forces and spatial harmonics.
Analysis of magnetomotive forces gives information about higher harmonics, appearing in the air gap.
Research of electromagnetic factors of considered windings was accomplished using instantaneous space functions of rotating magnetomotive forces. These functions are created on the basis of electrical circuits and electric current phasor diagrams of analysed chain winding, according to which the conditional current strengths and flow directions are determined in the selected moment of time.
Instantaneous changes of magnetomotive force below slots of magnetic circuit are calculated as
here [F.sup.*], [F.sup.*]'--changes of magnetomotive forces induced in the slot of active sides of upper and lower coils; [i.sup.*.sub.i], [i.sup.*.sub.i]'--relative quantities of instantaneous current values flowing through the upper and lower sides of coils located in the slots of respective phase windings.
Since winding factors estimate not only the reduction of the rotating magnetomotive forces and harmonics of internal voltages induced by them, but also reflect the relative magnitudes of amplitude values of harmonics of these variable quantities in respect of amplitude values of the same corresponding harmonics of the concentrated three-phase winding, for this reason winding factors of the odd harmonics of the analyzed winding calculated according to expression (1) will be verified using formula (2):
Not all mentioned measures can be applied to improve the shape of the curves of rotating magnetomotive forces of all types of the three-phase windings and the shapes of electromotive forces.
The leakage inductance is proportional to magnetomotive force between the windings that acts in air gap of core [5] (Fig.
