A system level comparison of drive topologies for high speed electrical machines (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Savi, F., Barater, D., Di Nardo, M., Degano, M., & Gerada, C. (2017). A system level comparison of drive topologies for high speed electrical machines

This paper presents a comprehensive comparative study among five different converter topologies all designed to drive a 8.5kW-120krpm surface permanent magnet synchronous machine. The study aims at comparing the considered systems in terms of convert... Read More

Axial eccentric SynRel and SPM Motors analytical models validation using 3D finite element (2017)
Conference Proceeding
Mahmoud, H., Al-Timimy, A., Degano, M., Di Nardo, M., Bianchi, N., & Gerada, C. (2017). Axial eccentric SynRel and SPM Motors analytical models validation using 3D finite element. doi:10.1109/DEMPED.2017.8062331

This paper deals with the uniform and non-uniform axial eccentricity analyses of the surface mounted permanent magnet and synchronous reluctance machines. The analyses are carried out using an analytical model for each considered machine. Being the a... Read More

Design optimization of a high-speed synchronous reluctance machine (2017)
Journal Article
Di Nardo, M., Lo Calzo, G., Galea, M., & Gerada, C. (2018). Design optimization of a high-speed synchronous reluctance machine. IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications, 54(1), doi:10.1109/TIA.2017.2758759. ISSN 0093-9994

Synchronous reluctance machines, including the per¬manent magnet assisted variants are competitive motor topologies if the application requires high efficiency and a cost effective solution with a high flux weakening capability. However, increas¬ing... Read More
