Abstract

A high speed permanent magnet motor is designed for a flooded industrial pump. Oil in the pump is used to cool the motor. Due to the limitation of space and mass requirement for the application, thermal management is one of the main challenges. This paper describes the thermal management optimization process and design of the machine. Different cooling strategies are applied to cool the machine and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is used to predict and improve the cooling performance. The machine has been designed and is currently being manufactured.
