Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

This paper presents the steady-state model, performance, and stability analysis of a mixed pole machine with a new operational mode which provides a rotor torque and an n -phase rotor electrical output power to a shaft-mounted rotating electrical load. The machine operated under this mode can be used in applications that require contactless power, such as in robotics, or applications that require independent control of both rotor torque and rotor electric power, such as for contactless rotational antennas and turret systems. The performance assessment includes electromagnetic torque, electrical efficiency, mechanical efficiency, and total efficiency based on both simulation and experimentation. The effect of electrical loading and stator voltage on both rotor torque and rotor electric power is also considered. The machine steady-state stability is introduced by plotting the machine operating characteristics that determine all stable operating regions of the machine under the proposed mode of operation.
