Open Access research that shapes economic thinking...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by the Fraser of Allander Institute (FAI), a leading independent economic research unit focused on the Scottish economy and based within the Department of Economics. The FAI focuses on research exploring economics and its role within sustainable growth policy, fiscal analysis, energy and climate change, labour market trends, inclusive growth and wellbeing.

The open content by FAI made available by Strathprints also includes an archive of over 40 years of papers and commentaries published in the Fraser of Allander Economic Commentary, formerly known as the Quarterly Economic Commentary. Founded in 1975, "the Commentary" is the leading publication on the Scottish economy and offers authoritative and independent analysis of the key issues of the day.

Abstract

A new operational mode for mixed-pole machines is presented. The proposed wound reluctance rotor machine can produce an n-phase rotor electric power from the rotor windings to a resistive or inductive load, independent of rotor torque, at any desired synchronous speed. The two-stator windings, with a different number of poles, are fed from two voltage source inverters on a common dc link. This type of machine can be used in applications that require control of both rotor torque and rotor electric power, such as contactless rotational antennas and turret systems. The machine mathematical model is presented, with open- and closed-loop control systems, simulated and experimentally validated.
