Abstract

The X‑57 70‑kW Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor (PMSM) for cruise applications was modeled utilizing a two‑dimensional (2-D) electromagnetics simulation software called Finite Element Method Magnetics (FEMM, D. Meeker). The FEMM program was used to obtain the simulated induction and power characteristics of the X‑57 PMSM. These parameters and others were compared to actual static laboratory measurements. Actual dynamic voltage, current, thrust, torque, and rpm measurements were obtained from an outdoor propeller experiment designated AirVolt. The AirVolt data was used to model and simulate a three‑phase PMSM in SimScape Electrical™ (The MathWorks, Inc., Natick, Massachusetts), and data comparison was performed. A three-dimensional (3‑D) electromagnetic model of the X‑57 cruise motor was created utilizing OperaFEA (Dassault Systèmes SE, Vélizy-Villacoublay, France). Torque, rpm, power, resistance, and inductance characteristics were examined along with modeling heat flow and heat dissipation. The 3‑D modeling characteristics were compared to the actual dynamic data obtained from AirVolt.
